When my in-laws celebrated their 40th anniversary, I was asked me to bring a few extra glasses, just in case. The party was a blast and when I returned home I found a fun treat…my mother-in-law sent me home with the box of glasses. When a huge package of Plaid’s new Martha Stewart glass paint arrived, I couldn’t get to those glasses fast enough!
You know my craft motto by now, right! Simple projects with big results! Painting on glass and ceramics that I LOVE is the perfect blend of practical and fun! And the process was both simple and fulfilling! Check this out….
These stencil stickers are unbelievably cool! You peel them off and press them onto a glass or ceramic surface. And there are tons of stencils to choose from: Flowers, leaves, butterflies, patterns…
After placing the easy peel stencil sticker, you apply a thin layer of paint with a dabber. Wait a short bit. Then add a second coat of paint with the dabber. Then wait another bit. And while the paint is still wet, peel off the stencil carefully so you can rub it with alcohol and a cotton swab and use it again!
Next week is Little B’s birthday and guess what her birthday request was…she wants to make her very own birthday plate with these stencils and glass paint! I’m totally going to let her…they’re easy and give you that instant crafty giddiness that us girls desperately crave!
Don’t you just think these are the cutest wine glasses EVER!? I’m telling you start to finish 20 minutes! (Although, it did take me a bit to figure out how important the second coat was).
And a little sneak peek at an upcoming tablescape…I used a lacy stencil on a glass vase I’ve had laying around for years and repeated the pattern over and over until all the sides were filled with continuous lace…
Another simple craft completed! I placed a candle inside my lacy vase and I suppose now a tablescape is definitely inevitable. Check back with me soon so we can chat more about diy projects and fun glass painting. I’m telling you I’ve just begun…if you’ve visited before you probably know about my white ceramic fetish…I can’t wait to add some color block and color fun! Martha’s glass paint air cures within 21 days or you can follow the directions for oven baking!
You can find Plaid’s new Martha Stewart glass paint at Michael’s Stores along with other stencils, paints, tools, and accessories. To see what else you can do with this paint be sure to stay connected with Plaid on Facebook |Pinterest, and Twitter #marthaglass.
