I was excited to try out the new Martha Stewart Glass Paints and tools. I haven’t done too much glass painting for decor in my house but I feel a bit more seasoned to it now that I had a chance to play around with different types. I found out that in the Martha Stewart Glass Paint Collection there are opaque – gloss, pearl, and metallic; transparent – gloss and liquid fill; translucent – fine glitter and frost paints along with adhesive stencils, adhesive silkscreens and clings. I haven’t tried the clings but I am thinking if you like easy, that is your best bet!
I created a stenciled cutting board with the new paint and stencil. This cutting board actually came from the dollar store (score).
This was an extremely easy process, see my above photo.
I really loved these silkscreens, they were easy to use and they adhered nicely. The best part is after you remove them while they are still wet, just wash them with a little bit of soap and water and they are still sticky and ready to go again! I’m a sucker for paisley and swirleys so this was perfect for me. I did find out that Martha Stewart also has doily stencils which I can not wait to go buy! I found out these are excursively at Michael’s stores and luckily that is the closest craft store to me.
These tools and paints were new to me so I had to have a craft fail before figuring them out.

This week the kids had a family friend over and they wanted to do a movie + game night. My daughter came up with a game for the kids to play called the Silly Clown Quiz Game. A fun quiz game where kids answer questions and get a chance to throw gum into the clown’s mouth. It was a really cute game and I am glad she made it educational because the kids have been out of school for a couple months now, this keeps them on their toes!
I have this obsession with not only upcycling but I have a whole jar of trinkets. It’s everything from scrabble letters to little metal charms. In that jar are about a dozen bottle caps from glass soda bottles, beer bottles etc. I’m not going to lie, I have even picked up one or two on the street. I told you, I’m obsessed! I finally did something with those bottle caps and I am glad I did, these bottle cap magnets turned out so cute!
This was the first time I used Dimensional Magic, it’s pretty cool but there are some things you need to know! Do NOT shake the Dimensional Magic, it will create bubbles in your project. Slowly squeeze the bottle at a steady pace. Have a toothpick on hand incase there are bubbles you need to pop. When filling it, also fill it to the top as much as possible. I had this idea that somehow this bubbles into a dome and that is not how it works. It will dry at the level you fill it. What you see above is actually two coats of Dimensional Magic, I’m thinking they would be a little more clear if I did one coat.
People have asked where I buy Sparkle Mod Podge, I have found it at the Walmarts with bigger craft sections and at Michaels. The Dimensional Magic was found at Hobby Lobby but not in the scrapbooking section, it was by the jewelry making supplies. You can also order these at Amazon.com, while you are there check out Amy from ModPodgeRocksBlog.com‘s book: Mod Podge Rocks!: Decoupage Your World, it will not disappoint your craft loving heart!
