FAQs

Is the Martha Stewart Craft Paint or Glass Paint food safe?
No, The Martha Stewart Craft Paints and Glass Paints are non-toxic, but they have not been approved for contact with food. Therefore, we do not recommend using them for areas that will come into contact with someone’s mouth or direct contact with food. When working on a glass or ceramic drink ware, be sure to tape or mask a lip line approximately 0.8” or 2cm from the top of the drinking vessel. And when working on a glass or ceramic plate that will come in contact with food, be sure not to apply the finish on the food area of the plate; add a design on the rim only or in reverse on the backside of the plate.
What are the curing instructions for Martha Stewart glass and craft paint?
Paint is permanent after air drying for 21 days or can be baked to expedite permanence.

Bake-to-Cure Method

  2. Place project in a cool oven, as the glass must heat gradually with the oven to avoid breakage; do not place glass in a hot oven.
  3. Set oven temperature to 350ºF.
  4. Once temperature has reached 350ºF, allow the project to bake for 30 minutes.

How can I create a transparent look with FolkArt® Enamels?
FolkArt Enamels dry to a translucent to opaque finish. However, if you’d like to create a more transparent look, combine one part FolkArt Enamels with one part FolkArt Clear Medium. Paint as normal.
How can I paint a glass plate so that I can eat on it?
FolkArt® Enamels are non-toxic,however it is best to keep painted designs and food serving areas separate so that paint never comes into contact with food. When painting a plate for actual use, you must paint on the back using a method called Reverse Painting.
Reverse painting refers to the technique where painting is done on the back of clear glass (such as a plate) but is seen through the glass from the front. Therefore, the design is painted in reverse, with details first and basecoat last. When you have painted a clear glass plate with this technique, food can be placed onto front of plate.
How do I prepare my project for painting with FolkArt® Enamels?
Wash with soap and water. Clean area to be painted with rubbing alcohol.
How do you apply the FolkArt® Enamels Frost colors?
You can stencil, spounce or brush on. The colors will dry to a matte finish and have the same durability of regular FolkArt Enamels.
How much paint should I add to the FolkArt® Enamels Frost Medium?
Mix one part Frost Medium and one part paint. We recommend that you mix more than you think you will need to ensure color and texture consistency for your entire project.
If my painting looks thin on a few strokes, what should be done to protect it?
Add a layer of Clear Medium on top of the painting.
What is the FolkArt® Enamels Clear Medium used for?
FolkArt® Enamels Clear Medium is used to create a transparent look without compromising the paint’s adhesion. It can also be used with the double-load technique to achieve just the right paint consistency for effects such as shadows and shading.
