I was asked if I’d like to review Plaid’s new Martha Stewart glass paint and of course I said yes! I’ve tried out several products from Plaid’s Martha Stewart Craft line and they have yet to disappoint. The paints are awesome and the stencils range from chic to adorable. Today I’m going to teach you how to create painted plates for your wall!
Plaid’s new Martha Stewart glass paint comes in fine glitter, gloss, metallic, and frost. The frost paints are very translucent and provide an ethereal feel to your project. The glitter paints give a bit of sparkle and the metallics have a fantastic sheen to them. There are a ton of beautiful colors to choose from!
For this project you will need:
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Gloss White Glass Paint
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Metallic Black Glass Paint
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Frost White Glass Paint
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Adhesive Silk Screen Stencils
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Glass Pouncer Set
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Glass Squeegee Set
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Glass Scraper & Pick Set
- Rubbing alcohol & cotton balls
Your plates are not food safe, but they can be cured to help paint adhesion by air drying for 21 days, or by baking them in the oven for 30 minutes at 350°. Full instructions for curing your plates can be found at Plaid.
Below is a close-up picture of all the plates I painted. For the tree and silhouettes, I created a stencil on adhesive vinyl using my digital cutting machine and then painted the stencils with black paint. I love the way they all turned out! On the black plates note that I used the frost paint with some of the stencils to create a “ghostly” feel. I think this mantel will transition from fall into Halloween perfectly!
Below is my inspiration image from Country Living.
And here is my knock-off version! Not too shabby, eh?
I’m thrilled with how my fall mantel turned out this year and am grateful to Plaid’s new Martha Stewart glass paint for inspiring me to create it! You can check out Plaid on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest and find a bunch of other inspiring glass paint projects under hashtag #marthaglass.
