Handmade gifts such as unique, original art on Wine Glasses or on Mason Jars are very much treasures. You can use your imagination and inspiration to paint on glass for all kinds of special occasions, to commemorate all kinds of lovely special events and good times. You will use acrylic paint and then you will learn how to set the paint and put a sealant on the glass to make it stable and beautiful. It does not require many materials and the supplies are reasonably priced. You may use the glassware you already have on hand for the workshop. This creative work is easy and fun to do. It is great for all skill levels. There is a handout with a flamingo image, or you can *design your own.
