Painted Wine Glasses

These wine glasses were Christmas gifts for several women in my family.  I hand painted each glass, though I did use stencils for the names.  My hands are very unsteady, but discovered that I could go back and scrape off a little bit of the paint if a line turned out lumpy or I had a bump, or another mistake.  Alcohol also dissolved the paint.  These techniques only worked for a few days after the paint was applied though.  For Ashley's glass, I used a Q-tip dipped in paint for the dots. For all the glasses, the tiny little dots on the names and other places were made using a toothpick dipped in paint.
