So, I took the plunge. Actually the glasses did. I sunk my glass stems into the chalkboard paint, watched the slick paint flow up around the base, and then I slowly raised them up and out. Perfect. Smooth as silk.
But the underneath was loaded and dripping. I wiped some of it off then sat them to dry. They flooded and pooled all over the drying station (wax paper on my table) as the paint oozed off the bottoms. O.k. I lifted each one, rewiped and repositioned them to dry in a fresh spot. Waited an hour. Same thing. Repeated process. And again.
Needless to say, these are not a simple task. Simple idea, yes. Simple execution? Not entirely.
They look beautiful once dry, but there was still run-off that gathered at the bottom rim which I will now need to sand down and possibly retouch the chalkboard area. Geez. Alright, well no more complaining from me. I still love the glasses and they will soon be available to grace your home once I finish making them guest worthy. I toast to that.
