(looking for the glitter spray CLICK HERE for where I purchase mine)
Directions: Make sure your glasses are clean then simply spray them with the glitter spray and let dry for 24 hours. Once dry you can embellish them any way you want to, I used things I had around the house, I found felt harts with glitter on them a couple years ago at the craft store and still had tons left over which worked perfect for the love bug. For her face I used a glass paint marker and some glass paints since I was painting on the glass and not the glitter (the white is sprayed on the inside).
Two Color Look: Start by spraying the inside of the glass with one color (black for the lady bug and white for the love bug) once dry take and cut out the desired shapes for both the glasses (wet the paper and lay on the glass, over the color area you are wanting to mask off) while the paper is damp it sticks to the glass long enough to spray your other color over top, once dry you can easily removed the paper and the masked off color underneath will show through.
NOTE: When spraying these you must treat it like any spray paint, you need to do it in coats and spray at a slight distance, if you get to close or spay too much in one spot at a time then the paint/ glitter can run. Shake the can VERY well before spraying to mix the glitter, this also helps to keep the can from clogging. If you live in a cold/ damp climate you need to take caution when spraying it may not tack up if its too cold out (you can spray them in a garage or somewhere warmer to help, but be careful of over spray in this case).
Note: These are for decoration purpose only, not meant for actual food use.
I am so thrilled as to how popular these have become, I encourage you to make your own for you or family and friends. However I do strongly ask that you do not recreate these to sell since it directly competes with my Etsy site and local business. If you post your reproduction anywhere online such as a blog please link back to your original source of inspiration, this keeps my blog able to continue, along with me being able to create more fun ideas to share with everyone. Thank you all so much for your support.
