Instructions

Preparation

  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.

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.

Eggs and Chick Vase

  1. Using stencil tape, mask off the vase body as shown.
  2. Paint Diving Board below the tape line. Allow it to dry and then reapply a second coat for opaque coverage. Let dry completely.
  3. Before removing the tape, score along the tape edge with a craft knife. Carefully lift to remove the tape.
  4. Stencil chick Yellow Jacket and eggs Wedding Cake using a small dauber. Repeat egg designs in an overall pattern around vase.

Bunny Vase

  1. Using stencil tape, mask 3/4' of the vase body. Refer to photo.
  2. Pounce Blue Calico on the body of the vase below the tape line. Let dry. Reapply a second coat for opaque coverage. Allow to dry.
  3. Score along the tape edge with a craft knife before removing tape. Carefully remove tape.
  4. Stencil the bunny design Wedding Cake using a medium dauber.

Love Heart Vase

  1. Position the stencil centered on the vase. Press in place.
  2. Load a medium pouncer with Poodle Skirt and stencil the design. Carefully remove stencil while still wet and allow to 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.

Finishing

  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.
