I have a question, never painted on glassware but I am interested. What do you do to the paint to seal it and make sure that it wont come off or chip when it gets washed.

That is awesome. I think the salt dish looks great, and I love the green bottoms to the glassware. What a lucky dad! Smiley

jennique- i sprayed mine with a clear sealer when i was finished but i also heard that they make glass paint where you bake the glass once you paint on it to seal it.

brokendove- your tequila shot glasses are so cute. great idea! Smiley i think they'd look awesome with the margarita set
