  1. Refer to the Basic Stenciling Tips for information on using Martha Stewart Stencils.
  2. Prewash all glassware and ceramics in warm soapy water prior to decorating. Rinse well and dry.
  3. Wipe over cleaned surface with a rubbing alcohol moistened paper towel to further remove impurities and possible soap residue.

Stay Wild

  1. Apply stencil tape to the bottom section of a mug as shown. Paint below the tape using Wild Salmon and a medium foam pouncer as shown. Let dry, then apply a second coat for opaque coverage, allow to dry completely.  Score along the tape edge using a craft knife BEFORE removing tape.
  2. Stencil Wild Blueberry using a small dauber. While paint is still wet, carefully remove stencil. Let dry.


  1. Tape off bottom section of mug as shown with stencil tape. Paint Beach Glass below the tape line using a medium foam pouncer. Let dry and then reapply for opaque coverage. Let dry completely.  Score the tape edge BEFORE removing tape using a craft knife.
  2. Stencil Wild Blueberry as shown using a small dauber. While paint is still wet, carefully remove stencil. Let dry.

TIP: When painting on a glass surface that is basecoated, do not remove the stencil from the backer sheet as the adhesive may be strong enough to peel away the background color. Use the stencil with the backing sheet still in place. Either hold stencil in place or VERY lightly tape in place.


  1. Stencil a random pattern of Wild Blueberry trees around the mug using a small dauber.  Repeat design until entire mug is covered.  Carefully remove tape while paint is still wet, let dry.

Clean Up

  1. Wash all stencils, brushes, and tools immediately after use before the paint dries.
  2. Cleaned stencils should be stored on the backer sheet for future use.


  1. Allow your painted glass project to dry for at least 24 hours before using the bake-to-cure method to enhance your project’s durability.
