Project Instructions

Step 1: Wash votive in warm soapy water. Allow to dry.

Step 2: Moisten a paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe votive to remove any residue.

Step 3: Fill a small plastic container with Raspberry Ice paint.

Step 4: Hold votive at an angle and dip into Raspberry Ice.

Step 5: Raise glass and allow to drain. Re-dip votive to apply a second coat of paint. Raise glass and allow to drain.

Step 6: All painted glass projects should be cured to increase the paint’s durability. Use either of the following techniques:

 

Bake to Cure – Place dry painted 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: Use only the Air Cure technique for projects decorated with Glitter Glass Paints.

 

Air Cure – Air dry completed projects for 21 days before using.

 


 

Tips

To ensure your Martha Stewart Crafts glass project stays as beautiful as the day it was painted, be sure to follow all preparation and curing instructions.
