I know it's been a while since I have participated in Paint party friday due to personal issues, mainly carpal tunnel surgery on my painting hand! It's getting better daily although my thumb still hurts sometimes and my pointer has a bit of numbness. I still think a tiny numbness is a good trade off for waking up with my whole hand numb.
To the point, Crystal! Ok, this week I finally tried a bit of painting and I must admit that my hand hurt a bit afterwards but it was a good hurt. (The doctor told me that it could hurt for up to a year)
This weekend is my step-daughter's birthday. In my family I always allow the birthday honoree to choose a menu for dinner. Anything goes and through the years, there have been some really unusual requests. My husband always chooses eggplant parmesan and strawberry shortcake with real whipped cream. Once my son chose hot dogs and enchiladas. For my daughter the menu consisted of potato soup, london broil and fun-fetti cake. This time, (remember I said anything goes?)...it's Bang-bang shrimp tacos, orzo, and angel food cake. Not exactly a go together meal is it?
I thought it would be nice to paint a wineglass to set on the counter with the odd culinary companions. Since she loves cherries, well, that was the theme.
Painting on glass is not hard if you haven't tried it give it a go. You will need enamel paint specifically for glass and when it has dried for at least 48 hours you need to bake it in a home oven for a 1/2 hour at 325 degrees to set the paint. Most of the time this allows you to put it in the dishwasher but I recommend hand washing...I mean do you ever put your wine-glasses in the dishwasher? I don't.
|I thought a fishy one would be cool so I did that too|
I will try and visit throughout the weekend and hope you all have great one!
