Bloody Handprint Drinking Glass
Opaque glass paint and your own handprint will add a little spooky fun to any plain drinking glass! Quick and easy-to-make leave these glasses a Halloween necessity. We purchased our glasses at the dollar store and decorated several.
To make each glass you will need
desired size drinking glass, made of glass
rubbing alcohol, to clean glass
waterbased paint for glass, red
dish soap, large wide paint brush, small round paintbrush, soap and water, paper towels, newspaper, oven
Wash glass with dish soap and dry. Wipe surface of glass to be painted with rubbing alcohol. Make sure glass is free of streaks and allow to dry.
Cover work space with newspaper. With large wide brush, paint palm of hand with red paint. Working quickly while paint is wet, grasp glass in desired location. Press palm firmly against glass to get a good impression. Carefully remove hand from glass. *Wash hand in soapy water to remove paint. Touch up any places on the handprint with small round paintbrush. With the same brush, add dripping "blood" from fingerprints, as seen in the photograph. Allow paint to dry. Bake glass in oven according to manufacturer's instructions on the paint label.
Hand wash painted glass in mild soapy water.
*For the best results, we found it better to wash our hands after each impression, starting with a clean hand for each glass.
