Martha Stewart Crafts Classic Serif Alphabet Adhesive Stencil Projects

I have always loved to draw and paint but I didn't really throw myself into it until after I had my first son.  I wanted to be a stay at home mom and at the same time be able to decorate the new home we had just purchased. I taught myself how to use power tools and began to build furniture which I would paint and sometimes sell.  What was once a hobby became a new part-time career which I feel so blessed to be able to do.
Personalizing has never been easier than now. Creating fun accessory dishes using Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paints and Adhesive Stencils is not only quick, it is also easy to create! Change the look of ordinary ceramics to extraordinary by embellishing with fun borders.

Instructions

Instructions for Classic Serif Projects:

  1. Stencil monogram letters Greek Tile, Pacific Iris and Hydrangea Purple Gloss Opaque.
  2. Stencil accent trim and borders in Antique Pewter Metallic Opaque, Bright Sky Gloss Transparent and Hydrangea Purple Gloss Opaque.
  3. Using Martha Stewart Crafts Spray Paint System, paint the solid borders in Bright Sky Gloss Transparent and Hydrangea Purple Gloss Opaque prior to stenciling.  Allow spray paint to thoroughly dry prior to stenciling.

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Moisten paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe over cleaned ceramic surfaces to remove any remaining dirt, grease or soap film.  Allow to dry.
  2. Position adhesive stencil on glass surface where desired; press in place.

Stenciling Instructions:

  1. Load the flat bottom edge of the foam pouncer 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 pouncer loaded properly. 
  2. Set foam pouncer aside in container of water for cleaning.  While paint is still wet, neatly and carefully lift stencil by peeling away from the ceramic surface.  NOTE:  Be careful not to drag stencil while removing it as your painted design may be blurred.
  3. To further embellish the stenciled letter, use the writer tip to paint swiss dots on the broad portion of each letter.  Position the writer tip where desired, lightly squeeze the bottle until desired dot size is achieved, release pressure and lift.
  4.  All ceramic surfaces painted with Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paints should be cured to increase the paint’s durability on glass or ceramic surfaces.  Follow either the Bake to Cure Technique or the Air Cure Technique. 

Bake to Cure Technique – Set dry silkscreened ceramic surfaces into cool oven.  Set oven to 350°F and bake for 30 minutes.  Ceramic surface must heat gradually with the oven to avoid breakage.  Do NOT place glass in a hot oven.  After 30 minutes, turn the oven off.  Allow ceramics  to cool completely in oven.  Wait 72 hours before using.  NOTE:  Glitter Glass Paints should not be baked to cure; only use air cure technique when painting with glitter paints.

Air Cure Technique – Air dry completed project for 21 days before using.  NOTE:  Glitter Glass Paints should not be baked to cure; only use air cure technique when painting with glitter paints.
