Puff Paint “Glass Charms”

Recently I stumbled upon using puff paint in a practical way….. I had written out some letters and symbols on a plastic sheet to affix as an embellishment to a craft project I had been working on.

Anyhow, in noticing that the dried letters most always re-stuck onto some flat surface, I started affixing them to drinking glasses, water/beer bottles, etc….  they work as great “GLASS CHARMS”  to identify your drink.  They can usually be peeled off and reused over and over.  Additionally, I’ve even forgotten to remove them and they’ve ended up going through a dishwashing cycle, and looked unfazed by it.

Give it a try, I think you’ll have a lot of fun with it!  I’ve done it using most of the puff paints on the market, and most work just fine.  There are a few brands that dry a little to hard/stiff to be used in this way.

Additionally, I just ran across a blog that posted a recipe for homemade puff paint.  I’m going to give this a try and see if I can get the same results by any chance.  Maybe you’d like to too :-)

Here are photos of my puff paint glass charms and steps to replicate.  At the bottom, you’ll find the link to the puff paint recipe via the blog where I found it.  Have fun!

Grabbed a few bottles of puff paint and a large plastic baggie and started writing letters...

The hard part.... waiting for the paint to dry !!

Once the letter/shape is totally dry, peel it off the plastic you wrote it on

Press the letter firmly against the glass

Here's the final product

  1. Wonderful blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Cheers!

    • Sorry for the delayed reply… I would love to offer hints and advice, but I’m afraid I’m pretty new at this myself ! I have those very same questions and hope that BOTH of us will learn what we need to succeed here :-) Best wishes and thanks for reading my blog.
