Painting glass


This year the FunLab Bilingual Summer Camp has been all about experimenting with new materials so when I found the glass candle holders in the Borgione catalog I decided to give it a go. We left the kids room to experiment and the results were a bright explosion of dabbed, stripped and painted glass.

You will need:
Glass candle holders
Glass Paint
Small candles
Candle paint

Let’s get started:
Step 1: Have the kids paint the glass candle holders a single color both inside and out.

Step 2: Let dry.

Step 3: Once the base coat is dry, let the kids explore using the different colors and shapes.

Step 4: We had small candles and liquid wax paint so we decorated candles to add to our candle holders.

My personal favorite was this one!
