Hi Friends!! Have you heard of the new marbling paint by Plaid?? When I was at a blogging conference last month, I received a couple of bottles of it and I finally got around to playing with them! I marbled some wine glasses, flower vases, and rocks. Super easy and fun!! No chemicals needed, just squeeze the paint on and watch the magic. I made three different DIY personalized wine glasses and also have some free SVG files for Cricut Design Space of cute wine glass sayings for you!

There are different ways to add marble paint to your DIY painted wine glasses. Use your painter’s tape and apply the tape around where you don’t want the paint to get! For tall wine glasses, you can add the tape at the bottom of the stem or the top depending on how much of you want painted ( click here for video tutorial!) For the stemless wine glass, I also added plastic wrap around the top of the cup since I had to dry it upside down and I didn’t want any of the paint to run on to the glass.
Do not shake the paint! It causes air bubbles. Just open the paint and squeeze. Then add another color. You can slowly turn the wine glasses around to spread the paint around. Here’s a quick video on how I applied the marbling paint to the stemless glass.
Then pull off the tape.
I then added a few layers of mod podge about 20 minutes apart. I used a flat paint brush and got right to the edge of the paint. You could also apply another layer of tape 1-2 mm above the paint line and spray it with mod podge (I only had the jar on hand).
Wipe off any excess mod podge with a baby wipe or wet paper towel. The Mod Podge will dry clear so you will barely see the line.
Once it’s dry, you can add one of my FREE cut files with vinyl or use them as a stencil and paint it on with Sharpie paint markers! To learn how I apply vinyl with the hinge method click here. I love this Cricut holographic vinyl!! (Find it on Amazon here!)
I always run my embossing gun over the vinyl and press it down with my fingers to give it a little extra hold. Let it cure for 72 hours before it gets wet! Hand Wash ONLY on these!
