Be sure to clean your glass well before beginning any glass paint project. I always use rubbing alcohol for my projects. I used my Silhouette to cut a few chevron shapes from vinyl. The chevron shape really reminds me of waves in the ocean so I felt it was perfect for this project. Adhere those shapes to your candle holder and burnish all of the edges well.
Then just use your 3D Gloss Enamel writers to fill in the chevron shapes. HINT: I always insert my hand INSIDE my project while I am working on painting. That way I can move my project around easily without touching the paint.
I then peeled away my vinyl while the paint was still wet.
Allow your paint to dry completely. I love how the paint gets a see through quality that makes it look like stained glass. I added some Epsom salts and a battery operated tea light to my candle holder. You could also fill with sand from the beach for even more nautical feel.
All that is left is to add your chevron beach themed candle holder to your nautical display. I love decorating portions of my home in a beach theme during the summer. Or maybe add a project like this in the colors of your choice to any room in your home. Enjoy this super simple quick and easy project this weekend.
Now hang on to your hats. You will want to run out and buy some gloss enamels from DecoArt once you see what my blog friends were able to make with them. Check out all of the inspiration below for some beachy fun!
