Product Review - Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint

After some prodding from one of my friends, I decided to try a glass painting project. I created stencils using Grafix Cling Vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo, then used Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint by Plaid to make a couple funny wine glasses.

Overall, I really liked this product.

The paint comes in a variety of colors and finishes. I especially like the pearl and metallic colors because they are shiny and sparkly. What girl doesn't like shiny, sparkly things?

You can apply the paint a variety of ways. I created three glasses using the following techniques.


Glass 1 - I used a paintbrush.

I simply used a flat brush to apply the paint to my glass. If you look closely, you can see slight ridges in the paint giving the lettering a little texture.




Glass 2 - I applied the paint with a foam dauber or detail painter.

I simply tapped the paint into the stencil with the dauber. This method produced a more random texture than the paint brush.





Glass 3 - My favorite effect was achieved with a rubber scraper.

First, I applied the paint with the bottle tip. Then I used the scraper to press it into the stencil. The paint was so smooth that the design almost looked professional.





Pros

  • variety of colors and finishes
  • affordable way to personalize glassware
  • easy to apply with the fine tip on the bottle
  • non-toxic
  • can be applied using different techniques to create various textures
  • project ideas on the Plaid website
  • other Martha Stewart Crafts accessories such as stencils and adhesive silkscreens are available
  • can also be used with your own stencils and accessories
  • designs can be air or oven cured
  • projects are dishwasher safe after curing

Cons

  • challenging (but not impossible) to get a completely smooth finish
  • can be bubbling after curing if the paint is too thick or is applied to glass that is not completely oil and residue free
  • oven curing instructions are not on the packaging. However, they can be found on the Plaid website.

Overall, I thought this was a good product. Getting the exact texture you want from the paint takes a little practice, but many crafts require a little practice to perfect the technique. If you are extra artsy, you could use this paint with a brush to freehand designs onto glassware as well. I preferred using the stencils because it allowed me to create crisp, evenly spaced wording to decorate my glasses.



If you are curious... This is the only French phrase I know. It means "I would like a glass of red wine."  It seemed appropriate and funny to put it on a wine glass. Cheers!
