Martha Stewart Crafts Bold Sans Alphabet Adhesive Stencil Projects

Julie Lewis
Julie Lewis was destined to be an artist…at least that was what she was told from Kindergarten on. Born outside of Cleveland, Ohio, she was blessed to have been given an incredible art education all through her school years and from her creative and talented parents. Growing up in a world where every day brought some new creative adventure, it was no surprise that she went on to graduate from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a B.F.A. in graphic design. Her professional life included working in many fields from industrial advertising to American Greetings. Most gratifying was working as a designer for the largest craft company, Plaid Enterprises in Georgia where she now resides.She paints and creates felt soft sculptures inspired by said paintings and now sells them through her shop STELLALOLA on Etsy. She is inspired by many things around her…most importantly, a wonderful family, an insanely happy German Shepherd and one stoic Alaskan Malamut.
Personalizing has never been easier than now. Making a coffee or tea set for that special moment using Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paints and Adhesive Stencils is not only quick, it is also easy to create! Change the look of ordinary ceramic to extraordinary by embellishing with patterns, color and monograms.

Instructions

 Coffee Set Instructions

  1. Stencil monogram letters with Vanilla Bean.
  2. Stencil accent trims with Wet Cement and Pool.
  3. Using Martha Stewart Crafts Spray Paint System, apply Pool to sugar and creamer after taping off desired areas.  Carefully remove tape.

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Moisten paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe to remove any remaining dirt, grease or soap film.  Allow to dry.
  2. Position adhesive stencil on 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 glass surface.  NOTE:  Be careful not to drag stencil while removing it as your painted design may be blurred.
  3. For a textured appearance, use squeegee to lay glass paint onto stencil opening.   Spread paint as if icing a cake.  Carefully remove stencil for a raised appearance.
  4.  All 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.

 

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.
