Liquid Leaf Painted Glassware DIY

I've been wanting to do this project for awhile now, I've been super-inspired by painting geometric patterns on things. I'm not much of a freehand artist, and I can't draw a stick person to save my life. But patterns...patterns I can do. And who doesn't want to feel successful at their project design? So, I like sticking to patterns. Enjoy the tutorial below

Using washi tape, mark off a design on the glass. I chose to paint triangles onto one glass, and geometric shapes on another to make it look like pieces of glass. It's important to make sure you stick the tape down really well so that the paint doesn't seep through and mess up your designs. The Liquid Leaf paint is kind of thin, so you will probably have to paint more than one coat.

I would recommend that these dry overnight before peeling off the washi tape. I really like how modern-feeling these turned out. And of course, painting anything gold makes me happy. 

It's important to note that you should handwash these-I imagine that the dishwasher would strip the paint right off. Also, if you find that the lines of your designs aren't perfectly clean (the paint seeped through), once the paint is completely dry you can take a craft knife and scrape the excess paint right off. 

Pin It!


  1. wow, these are so cool. I like the geometric design theme going around. :)

  2. thanks! I am loving geometric patterns
