Glass paint: the glass paint I have been recommending in my tutorials, Liquitex glossies, has been discontinued 😱 I have spoken with Liquitex and they said they discontinued because of low consumer demand- there are other less expensive brands now on the market but  I haven’t tried any.  These gloss enamels by DecoArt look comparable.  I recommend a non transparent, washable, glossy enamel that can be cured by baking

    Jenna, Three Cheers for the Red, White & Blue! I know your grands will be thrilled to have their own grown up version and patriotic table with sailboat centerpiece! So smart to give them some sunglasses to model and sail pails to serve up their food to keep them from being crabby too 😉

  11. Hi Jenna, I would happily sit at the adult table OR the kid table!! You make this painting look so easy but I have my doubts! I remember when you made the bottles in the centerpiece. They are so striking with the flags in them too. I could just imagine sitting on your breezy deck waving the flags! Linda
