Gilded Glasses

Introduction

A quick dip in craft paint gives a set of inexpensive drinking glasses and a decanter a chic makeover. Paint made to adhere to glass is durable and dishwasher-safe after it cures. (Just stay below the rim, since it isn't food-friendly.) Pour equal parts all-purpose gold craft paint and glazing medium (for added luster) into a container just wider than the glass, then dip. Lift the glass, let excess paint drip off for 30 seconds; hang with a clamp (protecting the rim with a paper towel) over newspaper until fully dry. To cure, set glasses on rack in a cool oven and turn it to 350 degrees; bake for 30 minutes. Let cool; wait 72 hours before using. Alternatively, let them air-cure for three weeks before using.
