How to cure the paint on your painted glassware.
The paint we use is permanent after air drying for 21 days or can be baked to expedite permanence. For glass that will be washed in the top rack of the dishwasher, cure the item in the oven; glassware cured using the air-dry method is not safe for use in the top rack of the dishwasher.
Bake-to-Cure Method (Oven)
- Allow painted glass project to dry at least one hour. Make sure the paint is dry to the touch before baking.
- Place your glasses in a cool oven.
