EZScreen DIY Screen Printed Glass Drinking Mug
Screen printing on glass has more of a learning curve than screen printing on fabric. But once you get the technique down, the possibilities are endless!
I created a St. Patrick's Day design for a glass drinking mug and made the stencil with >>these directions<<
I found this awesome glass beer mug at Dollar Tree for $1. I prepped the glass by cleaning it with alcohol to get rid of any grime or dirt.
The paint I used was DecoArt Americana Opaque 3D Acrylic Paint. It works great on glass surfaces.
I sprayed the back emulsion side of my stencil with repositionable tacky adhesive spray. This step is very important, otherwise the paint may bleed under the stencil if 100% contact is not made. I positioned the stencil on the glass and rubbed out the air bubbles.
Using an artist brush, I applied the glass paint making sure to cover the entire design.
After printing, I immediately washed off the stencil. Acrylic paint dries much more quickly than screen printing ink so it's very important to wash the screen right after.
