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.

Instructions

Preparation Instructions:
1.     Wash glass in warm soapy water to thoroughly clean; rinse well and allow to dry.

2.    Moisten paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe over cleaned glass to remove any remaining dirt, grease or soap film.  Allow to dry.

3.    Position stencil on glass surface where desired; tape or hold in place to stencil

Stenciling Instructions:
Foam Pouncer Tool Technique – Squeeze a small amount of paint onto foam plate.  Load the flat bottom edge of the foam pouncer with craft 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.  Holding the foam pouncer as you would a pencil, begin dabbing straight up and down over the opening of the stencil.  Continue until the entire design area has been painted.  Set foam pouncer aside in container of water for cleaning.  While paint is still wet, neatly and carefully remove stencil by.  NOTE:  Be careful not to drag stencil while removing it as your painted design may be blurred.

Stencil Brush Technique – Squeeze a small amount of paint onto foam plate.  Dab the stencil brush into the puddle of paint.  Tap up and down a few times more on a clean spot on the foam plate or paper towel to ensure that your stencil brush is not holding too much paint. Holding the brush vertically, dab up and down into the opening of the stencil.  Continue stenciling adding more paint to your brush as needed until the entire design area has been painted.  Set stencil brush aside in container of water for cleaning.  While paint is still wet, neatly and carefully remove stencil by.  NOTE:  Be careful not to drag stencil while removing it as your painted design may be blurred.

1.     Continue adding stencil designs over glass surface until desired effect is achieved. 

2.    Set completed project aside for 1 hour to thoroughly dry.

Curing Instructions:
All glass surfaces painted with Martha Stewart Crafts Multi-Surface Acrylic Craft Paint 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 stenciled 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 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 Paints should not be baked to cure; only use air cure technique when painting with glitter paints.

2.     All fabric surfaces painted with Martha Stewart Crafts Multi-Surface Acrylic Craft Paint should be cured to increase the paint’s durability.  Follow either the Dryer Method or Iron Method to heat set.

Heat Setting to Cure Technique – Allow your decorated fabric to air dry 24 hours then heat set using either one of two recommended methods.

Dryer Method – Turn garment inside out; place item in dryer for 30 minutes on highest setting allowed for the type of fabric used.

Iron Method – Place decorated item right side up on ironing board; cover with dry pressing cloth.  Set iron to highest setting allowed for fabric used.  Place dry iron (no steam) on area pressing for 30 seconds, lift iron moving to another area until all sections are heat set.
