Kiss Me I'm Irish
This Kiss Me I’m Irish pattern is one of the popular Irish slogans during this season. You see it usually placed on round metal pins and worn as one of the Irish signs that St. Patrick’s Day is here. That doesn’t mean you couldn’t write any desired slogans on this piece. With this Irish sign you just might get lucky!
The green clover is made out of one piece of any color of green glass desired. Glassline paints are used to add the wording to the piece. The nice thing about Glassline paints is that you can use a toothpick to remove any mistakes or clean up around the wording.
