Sparkle Wine Glasses

So I made sparkle wine glasses for friends this year. On the YouTube channel you can look up any video with the description of “Sparkle Wine Glasses” and see various methods of making these. No one video is better than the other but I suggest watching a few to get as many hints as possible.

 Here are photos from various points in the making:
