Let’s Party DIY Style With Martha Stewart Glass Paints

Did you know that you can create your own customized glass or ceramic items quickly and easily?  Well, you can using Plaid’s new Martha Stewart Glass Paint.

I save glass that I find interesting for future use and/or projects.  For this project I used some iced coffee bottles, a purchased drink pitcher, vase, candle holder and plate.


I used the following Plaid Martha Stewart Glass Paint products:

Paints:  Metallic Opaque in Rose Gold, Fine Glitter Translucent in Florentine Gold, Gloss Transparent in Monarch Orange, Gloss Opaque in Wedding Cake, Pearl Opaque in Pink Taffeta, Frost Translucent in Surf, Adhesive Silkscreens, Adhesive Stencils, Glass Paint Squeegees and Glass Paint Brushes

1.  Start with clean glass.  I washed mine in soap and water, rinsed thoroughly and then when dry I also wiped each surface with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol.

2.  I wanted to use EVERYTHING from the kit I received {you can see my haul video here}.  I started with the stencils first, placing them on the glass where I wanted them and then painting the stencil cutout area using #2 flat paint brush from my kit.  I used painter’s tape to mark off the area on the bottles where I did NOT want paint to be but otherwise all of the stencils and silkscreens have their own adhesive so it is not necessary to use tape.

3.  Once my stenciled and painted areas were dry, I used the adhesive silkscreens.  These were a breeze to use and the end result is a nice sharp image.  The paint does dry quickly so it is important to follow the directions that come with the silkscreens.

4.  For the iced coffee bottles I painted the surface above and below the tape using each of the six Martha Stewart Glass Paint colors I received.  I removed the tape slowly and carefully before the paint was totally dry so that I would have a crisp line.  When the paint was totally dry I then painted a different stenciled number on each bottle.  That way every guest has their own color and number.

5.  For the plate I used adhesive silkscreens on the underside of my plate.

6.  When everything was dry I oven cured my items following the directions at Plaid Martha Stewart Glass.  One important note, do not oven cure items painted with the Glitter Glass ~ these should be air cured only.

And there you have it ~ an easy and fun way to paint on glass or ceramic using Plaid’s new Martha Stewart Glass Paints.

      Thank you, Bev ~ I love those milk bottles to begin with but it was nice to make something I could use over and over again for parties or just some fresh cookies and milk for the kids.

    Are the items dishwasher safe after curing? Sometimes my hand is no so steady and I am thinking those stencils and silkscreens would be awesome for use with my fire on gold! Your items turned out lovely! I could picture you serving milk and cookies to a group of kids with those!

      Thanks so much, Julia! Yes, the items are top rack dishwasher safe once cured. I don’t have a dishwasher but I have hand washed the items a few times and they are holding up well. : )

      Hi Laura ~ thanks for stopping by and commenting. The stencils are really easy to use, just be sure to rinse them as soon as you remove them so that the paint doesn’t dry in the design. I would love to see/hear what you make with them. mb
