Stenciled Plates and Napkins {Martha Stewart Paint Line by Plaid}

Today, I am thrilled to introduce you to the Martha Stewart Crafts Decorative Paint Line by Plaid now available exclusively at Michaels! What is so amazing about this line is that the paint is formulated to work on all crafting surfaces including wood, metal, glass, ceramic, terra-cotta and fabric. It is indoor/outdoor safe, dishwasher-safe on glass, non-toxic, and completely edible! (Totally kidding on the edible part. Please do NOT eat the paint! But with 160 paint colors in five finishes—Satin, High Gloss, Glitter, Pearl, Metallic—they do look good enough to eat :)!)

After playing around with the paints a bit, I decided that I am completely in love with the Pearl finishes. So gorgeous! I used Jet Stream and Aquamarine Pearl Paint for this project. I purchased some plates at the dollar store and used the Typewriter Adhesive Stencil and the small pouncer brush to apply my paint.

The sticker stencils are so great for glass and ceramic projects!

In between applications, I placed my letters on the plastic packaging material and just wiped them off with a baby wipe. Worked like a charm to ensure a clean stencil each time.

Cute huh? After my paint was dry, I baked the plates in the oven to heat set the paint as directed on the packaging. I should note that the paint is not recommended in the center of the plates if you plan on eating from them. Painting the outside of ceramics and decorative plate painting is however strongly encouraged!

Next, I used the Cathedral Lace Stencil, large foam pouncer, and fabric medium with my paints to create gorgeous napkins!

Using the two blues together really made this project come alive.

Here are my napkins hanging to dry ;).


It’s tricky to capture in a picture the true beauty of the Pearl sheen but the way it glitters slightly in the light is really lovely.

And here is a close-up of the finished product!

I think this would make an adorable and extremely affordable housewarming gift.

But for now, I’m going to warm my own home with them :)!

    These are too cute, Beth! Such a great gift idea! Love the baby wipe tip! We’re waaay past baby wipes in our house for, um, babies – but I’ll grab some for stencils! Wonder if they work for spray adhesive too?

    Hi Beth-

    Love the design and color you used on the napkins – so pretty. They look great against the plates and the woven placemats. Baby Wipes rock – what did we ever do without them?

    My best- Diane

    Let me fuse these two passions, together. Add to that the absence
    of Paul Sculthorpe, Sean Long or Keiron Cunningham to dig them
    out of a possible13 and the club launched an internal inquiry.
