    Fraternity boys and painted glass? I can almost guarantee you those paintings won't last!! LOL What about vinyl stickers? http://www.woodlandmanufacturing.com/greek-letters...

    I'm not sure how well they'd do for votives though.

    Have you thought about using etching cream? It will permanently etch your glasses and you can find what you need in any craft store, probably near the paint aisle.

    Here's How:http://www.ehow.com/how_8589_etch-glass.html

    You can buy a stencil, or use a computer font to make your own on stenciling plastic (also at the craft store)

    You should use a spray clear acrylic or polyurethane sealer. Using a spray will prevent the acrylic paint from reliquifying and smearing. Objects like this will have to be carefully washed by hand with a soft sponge only. There is nothing you can do to make this a permanent decoration. The more it is used and/or washed, the sooner it will wear off.
