Martha Stewart Glass Painting
THANK YOU MARTHA STEWART. Phew. Got that out of the way. Today you get a sneak peek of the new line of MS glass paints that will be hitting the shelves soon. Again, thanks to MS for the generous amount of product they sent and if you buckle your seat belt, we'll dive right in. Ready? Let's go!
These are the silk screens. Silk screens are far superior to stencils because they allow you to make intricately detailed prints without a lot of skill. I didn't even know what I was getting into with these silkscreens, but they were easy to use and amazingly quick. These, along with a bunch of other products are part of Plaid’s new Martha Stewart glass paint line.
The back of the silkscreen has a light adhesive quality, so it attaches directly onto the glass and curves with circular vases, candles, etc. Make sure the glass is clean and dry before adhering and you will have no problems whatsoever. Once you've attached the silkscreen, simply daub a MS glass paint onto the open surfaces lightly. I used a gold metallic, but any of the paints in the line will work with these screens.
Here are my finished vases. The one on the left has a double, while the vase on the right is a single. The pair received a single ginko leaf directly in the center while the larger vase was tricked out with several leaves. I placed the leaves in a more natural pattern on the larger vase to imitate the falling of leaves outdoors.

...and the stencils aren't bad themselves. I love all the little decorative borders and detailed pieces as opposed to the larger stencils. This votive holder decked out with a brassy metallic is perfect for fall.
I spent most of the weekend like this painting and painting and painting some more,
so prepare yourself for a deluge of glass painted projects in the near future!
