At the moment I'm just using mod podge, layering it on the glass then adding the glitter to the glass there's pictures and videos on google with how to do it.. I'm sealing it with mod podge at the moment but people say there non washable this way so want to know if anyone uses something to make them washable? :) xx

Ooh I might have a go at this! I have too many glasses at the moment though, I need more cupboard space (or I could give away husband's pint glasses :wink2:)

No you don't have too. If you look on the internet there's loads where there all glitter :) I used another coat of mod podge. Still trying to find a good sealant

Plastikote is what I use when I make mine, I do put another layer of mod podge on then once that's dry use the sealant :) makes them dishwasher safe too xx

Which sealer did everyone decide on in the end? I've done mine with mod podge but they need sealing and I don't know what is best to use. I also did glitter to the top because there were so many like that on the internet.

I've just started doing these for Christmas presents. I used the dishwasher safe mod podge. I mixed the glitter into a paste and applied that way. It doesn't loose sparkle and when dry there's no loose glitter. It says before using in a dishwasher to leave to fully harden for a couple of weeks. They look lovely xxx

Hi,
I've been makin the glitter glasses for a few weeks for Xmas presents for friends and family. The only this I consistently struggle with is getting a straight edge near the tor of my glass. It doesn't seem to matter what sort of tape I use or how long I leave it, it always ands up peeling some of the glitter off with it when I remove the tape.
Anyone know who to avoid this?
Thanks
Kelly

Use masking tape while you're putting the first coat of glitter on then take it of and do the rest of your coats using the first coat as a guide xx

Frog tape gets a nice crisp edge when painting, better than masking tape maybe try that? I think they look really tacky tbh but each to their own x
