Instructions

  1. Wash surfaces in warm soapy water. Allow to dry. Wipe with rubbing alcohol to remove any residue.
  2. Cut out desired design elements for tray. Remove the backing from the silkscreen and set aside to later store the silkscreen. Position silkscreen on surface where desired; press in place. Use patterning tape to block off areas you don’t want paint.
  3. Using Copper, squeeze a small amount of paint onto solid edge of silkscreen. Holding squeegee tool at a 45° angle with light pressure, pull the paint across the opening of the silkscreen. Continue painting until the entire design area has been silkscreened. Set squeegee aside in container of water for cleaning. While paint is still wet, neatly and carefully lift silkscreen by peeling away from the glass surface. NOTE: Be careful not to drag silkscreen while removing it as your painted design may be blurred. 
  4. Wash silkscreens and tools immediately after use to remove excess paint. Do not allow paint to dry on silkscreen.
  5. Position silkscreen on glass surface where desired; press in place. Use glass patterning tape to block off areas you don't want to etch.
  6. Wear disposable gloves to protect hands. Pour a small amount of Etching Cream on your palette. Load etching cream generously on a natural bristle brush. Tap or pounce on a thick layer of Etching Cream. Apply a second coat if necessary. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  7. Rinse the etching cream off the silkscreen. Remove the stencil to reveal a beautiful etched design on the glass surface. 
  8. Clean all silkscreens, brushes, and tools immediately after use. Use Martha Stewart Crafts™ Brush & Stencil Cleaner for best results. Let dry. Attach dry stencil to backing to store for later use.
  9. To add initials or monograms to the flutes, peel alphabet stencil from backing sheet; set backing aside and save for future storage. Position adhesive stencil on glass surface where desired; press in place.
  10. Squeeze a small amount of Copper paint onto foam plate. 
  11. Load the flat bottom edge of the foam Spouncer with glass paint by dabbing into the puddle of paint. Dab a few times more on a clean spot on the foam plate to ensure you have the entire foam Spouncer loaded properly.
