How do you decoupage a glass plate?
To decoupage the back of a clear plate, you must use a technique called reverse decoupage. This involves applying the prints to the back of the plate so that the design shows through.

Here’s how:

Cut out design. Apply Royal Coat Decoupage Finish to the front of the print. Press the print face down on the back of the clear plate. Smooth with your fingers, then use a damp paper towel to remove excess Decoupage Finish from the glass.
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.
How should I cure my Martha Stewart Sea Glass Paint on a glass surface to make it permanent?

In order to achieve the strongest permanence, you should cure your projects painted with Martha Stewart Sea Glass Paint in the oven by following these steps: 

  1. Allow painted item to dry for 24 hours to be sure all layers of paint have dried.

  3. Set oven temperature to 350ºF.
  4. Once temperature has reached 350ºF, allow the project to bake for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes, turn the oven off and let glass cool down completely before removing from the oven.
  6. Do not use for 72 hours.

How do I use Glass Etching Cream?
Clean surface area with rubbing alcohol, soap and water. Wear protective gloves. Apply a thick layer of etching cream over the design area to be etched. Note that cream in the bottle may change color and darken but is usable. The cream should be applied in a generous, even coat. Let etching cream remain on the surface for 15 minutes. Rinse piece under running water to deactivate and remove the etching cream.
Does Glass Etching Cream work with Adhesive Silkscreens and Adhesive Stencils?
Yes, etching cream works beautifully with both adhesive silkscreens and adhesive stencils. Rub screens to secure design tightly to surface. Taping off areas not intended to be etched is a good idea when using silkscreens or stencils to prevent etching cream from spreading.
Will Glass Etching Cream etch my sink?
Etching Cream will permanently etch all glazed surfaces so avoid letting the cream touch any area that you do not want etched, including porcelain, ceramic or marble sinks. Water deactivates the etching cream. It is best to rinse etching cream in a stainless steel or fiberglasss sink.
