INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Allow paint to dry between each application.

  1. Wash and dry the glass items to remove dust and oil from the surface.
  2. Paint each section of the candleholders with a different color. (I used Purple Cow, Lavender, Citron Green, Bright Orange, and Black.)  Use a soft flat brush to add light layers of paint to the glass surface. 
  3. Paint the glass jars with one color of paint. To minimize streaks and brush-strokes, use a soft flat brush to add multiple light layers of paint to the surface. Let the paint dry between each application.
  4. Place the glass items in a box or on a covered surface to splatter them with Glorious Gold (Metallic). ( I used a variety of brushes and a toothbrush to achieve different-sized splatter marks). Dip the brush in paint and then flick the brush toward the surface to be splattered.
  5. Glue the cup to the candleholder base using E6000 Glue.

HELPFUL HINTS

Choose lightweight candleholders so that the goblets will be easy to lift up.
