Project Instructions

Step 1: Wash apothecary jar and lid in warm soapy water. Allow to dry.

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

Step 3: Select and cut apart the desired silkscreens.

Step 4: Remove the backing sheet and position selected designs on apothecary jar. Press in place.

Step 5: Add a small amount of paint directly onto the screen to the outside edge of the design opening.

Step 6: Holding the squeegee at a 45° angle with light pressure, pull the wet paint across the opening of the silkscreen. Continue painting until the entire design has been screened.

Step 7: Lift screen straight up, being careful to avoid smearing or smudging the wet design.

Step 8: Clean silkscreen immediately under running water; blot dry and return to backing sheet.

Step 9: 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.
