Welcome to I am Angela Sage Larsen. I hope you will visit my website at Before starting to paint any project the most important thing is to prepare the surface that is going to be painted. So for glassware you are going to want to use just a plain white vinegar and a paper towel or some kind of a cloth, dampen it and then just wipe the item down so that you can get off any finger prints or any oil or any sticker marks. Sometimes when things are priced, you have the price tag on it and it leaves a little bit of residue, so the white vinegar will just cut right through that. And the advantage of white vinegar over a soap is that soap can leave a film or a residue and that can kind of repel the paint but the vinegar will prepare the surface perfectly. And after you wiped it down you just dry it and get off any marks and you are ready to paint.
