Personalized wine glasses help guests keep track of their beverages. Use Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Spray Paint to give your glasses a chalkboard surface that each guest can personalize. Then, after your gathering, erase the chalk writing and reuse the glasses next time.

  1. PREPARE: Always work in a well-ventilated area and cover your workspace with a drop cloth to avoid overspray. Clean each wine glass with glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth. Then, use painter’s tape to cover the stems of the glasses, so that only their bases are exposed. If you’re worried about overspray, you can also cover the rest of the glasses with packing paper or newspaper.
  2. PAINT: Shake your can of Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Spray Paint for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Then, holding the can 10 to 12 inches away from the base of the first glass, spray the chalkboard paint in a steady, back-and-forth motion. Apply 2-3 coats to the base of the wine glass about 10 minutes apart. Repeat this step on the rest of your glasses
  3. FINISH: Let the chalkboard spray paint dry for two hours before removing the painter’s tape. Then, set the glasses aside for three days to let the chalkboard paint cure. After three days, rub the side of a piece of chalk on the base of each wine glass to condition the chalkboard. Wipe the chalk off with a dry cloth, and your wine glasses are ready to be personalized!

    NOTE: Do not put the glasses in the dishwasher. To clean, wash them by hand with warm water and dish soap. Avoid using an abrasive sponge.
