This project is a real eyecatcher---lovely! BUT unless the paint you're using is different from any brand I've used, instructions are that it isn't food safe & you should therefore keep the area of painting far enough below the rim of the glass so the mouth won't come in contact with the paint. Even the paints made specially for glass painting (that you bake after painting) carry this recommendation.

Does the paint wash off?
