Frances Bouffard's Profile

About

Hi and thank you for visiting. I'm Frances and I'm crazy about painting glass.

My love for arts and crafts was inspired by my mom, she was always teaching us to make all kinds of things from crates, doilies, pipe cleaners or anything else we could find. There was no craft we wouldn't try.

Many years ago, my sister-in-law was getting married and wanted something special for her wedding day. I saw some painted glasses and it was my eureka moment. Many classes later I felt ready to undertake the mammoth task of painting 150 wine glasses as wedding favors.

The sense of achievement I felt from producing something special on this once in an lifetime event just got me totally hooked. To top it all, I got so many wonderful compliments which I just did not expect and this was the icing on the cake AND…

The sense of achievement I felt from producing something special on this once in an lifetime event just got me totally hooked. To top it all, I got so many wonderful compliments which I just did not expect and this was the icing on the cake AND the cherry on the top.

I paint at home from my studio in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Washington, VA. Anything can be custom painted on request and I relish custom orders. I love working with customers to achieve the perfect results for their special day.

I also paint mirrors, salt and pepper shakers and anything else glass I can lay my hands on. I find painting soothing and rewarding. There is nothing more rewarding for me then to put a smile on my customers' faces.

I also welcome wholesale inquiries so please do ask me about large quantities. I personally hand-paint each and every item which means no two are ever exactly identical.

I use non-toxic paints which are then baked. This makes it very durable but if you want your glasses to last a lifetime, then I suggest you only wash them by hand.

I appreciate your time.
Take care,
Frances
