Much as Miss Eagle was inspired by Miss Woodpecker’s DIY glitter champagne flutes, I was too! I pictured all the ladies enjoying some nerve-calming drinks out of pretty, sparkly, yellow glasses as we prepared for the day.
Except I think I did something wrong. From a distance, my glasses look decent, but up close they’re kind of splotchy and greasy-looking.
I followed the Something Turquoise directions to the letter, but I used a non-Martha pouncer. The paint got kind of foamy, and oven curing it didn’t help. So now they look kind of water spotted, which isn’t really appealing to me.
Mr. Dragon thought they looked fine, so maybe they’re supposed to be like this, which is why I’m asking—should I redo these, this time with a Martha-approved brush? The glasses were only a dollar each at Walmart, so it wouldn’t be the end of the world to pitch these ones in the trash.
Tips and tricks are welcomed and appreciated! You’d think after months of DIY’ing I’d be better at it.
Are you an experienced DIY’er or someone who, like me, just picked it up for the sake of the wedding?
