Make a custom superhero glass with your picture and glass paint markers.

Have you ever tried glass paint markers?  I don’t know why I didn’t use these sooner…they’re so easy to craft with!    I used them to turn my son into a superhero, and make him a personalized drinking glass.  This was such a fun, easy project that I can’t wait to make several more!

Make a custom superhero glass with your picture and glass paint markers.


Supplies:

 

Step one:  I used PicMonkey.com to add the superhero effects to a picture of my son.  Print the image, trim the paper, and tape the image inside the glass.

Step two:  Use the glass paint markers to trace the photo.

Step three:  Remove the paper so you can see the outline of your photo.  Begin to color in the image.  I outlined most of it with a black paint marker to make it look more like a comic book.

I wanted the red to be brighter, so I went over the red areas with DecoArt’s opaque red glass paint to brighten them a bit.
The instructions on the markers say to let it dry for at least 4 hours, then bake in the oven for 40 minutes to make the paint permanent.  I usually hand wash my painted glass items, just to be on the safe side, but the instructions do say that they are dishwasher safe after the paint has been heat set.

I’m looking forward to making these for my other 3 children!  One wants to be Spiderman, the other a princess, and my 10 year old wants to design his own superhero and make his own glass himself.  The paint markers are so easy to use that I CAN let him do it himself!
