Before starting the bling glitter process, select and create the image you would like to use. I chose to combine a few images from LOVE SVG. They have a wonderful selection of FREE downloadable SVG’s that are perfect for creating your designs in Cricut Design Space. The font I used for this image is AR CENA and WATERMELON SCRIPT.
Measure the surface area of the glass and resize your design.
Cut, weed, and prep your vinyl design using 651 Outdoor vinyl. Apply your transfer tape and adhere you new decal to a clean wine glass.
Adhere Your Vinyl Design
Once you have your design on the glass you can then determine where and how much glitter you want. If you add glitter before putting your decal on, be sure to measure the surface area again to be sure your design will fit in the empty space
Bling It Up!
Adding glitter to glassware is not as complicated as it looks. If you use a waterproof mod podge to seal the glitter, it will not come off when wet and can be washed gently by hand.
Using a foam brush, apply a generous layer of mod podge where ever you would like the glitter to be.
Working quickly, sprinkle extra fine glitter over the mod podge, making sure to cover all areas that are wet.
Repeat this process once more (mod podge, then glitter)
Once it has dried, cover the entire glitter area in a generous coat of mod podge.
Once that is completely dry, let it sit and cure for at least 48 hours before using or washing. This curing process also applies to your 651 vinyl.
651 vinyl is permanent/outdoor vinyl and can be used and hand washed. It is not recommended that you put your finished project in the dishwasher or the microwave. The vinyl will melt, and your design will be ruined. Hand wash only with mild soap.
Enjoy Your Whimsical Mermaid Glitter Wine Glass!
Once your design has cured, enjoy a cold refreshing Summer Cocktail in your gorgeous Mermaid Glitter Wine Glass!
