Custom Painted Prescription Glasses

I did it!! OK I sanded, then ‘primed’ with white chalk paint. Finger painted, gloss glaze. Woop woop.

That is so cool! I’m thinking of all the money I’ve spent on pretty looking frames, never dawning on me that I could get some budget plain frames and pretty them myself! (the eyewear industry is such a racket)

How did you safely block off the lenses? This is amazing - you’re blowing my mind!!

I was wondering this, too, and what did you use to seal?
Love this, might have a go myself.

The lenses popped out easily, I just made sure not to get too much paint inside the lip and cleaned it our before popping them back in.

Thank you all.

A little more info on the glasses, I got them for like $7 on zenni optical years ago to wear with a halloween costume I made. I hadn’t wore them since because I didn’t like how big they were, so I wasn’t too worried about ruining them. Though now that I’ve seen it’s possibly I may do a few more pairs. I want a Halloween ones too!
