glass 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
glassware into cool oven. Set oven to
350°F and bake for 30 minutes. Glass
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 glass 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.
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.
