PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS:

STENCILED TOTE BAGS
YOU WILL NEED:
- Stencil brush
- Tape or stencil spray adhesive
- Paint (we used satin paint in: Geranium, Camellia Pink, Geranium, Wild Salmon, Camellia Pink, and Pink Dahlia and glitter paint in Candy Apple)
- Stencils (we used Eyelet Lace Medium Stencils)

TIP: Practice your technique or check your color by first making a sample print on paper or scrap fabric.

1. Place stencil on your surface, and secure using tape. If using spray adhesive, spray stencil first, then place on surface.
2. Pour a small amount of paint onto your palette. Load paint sparingly on a stencil brush or sponge, and dab off excess. Lightly dab on a thin layer of paint; apply a second coat if necessary. Paint all areas of one color on the stencil before moving on to the next.
3. While paint is still wet, carefully peel stencil off.
4. Continue painting areas of the stencil according to your design. Let the paint dry completely before placing another stencil or color over it.
5. Wash all stencils, brushes, and tools immediately after use before the paint dries.

SPRAYED TOTE BAG
YOU WILL NEED:
- Satin spray kit
- Satin paint: Pink Dahlia
Mix Pink Dahlia with the satin spray medium as instructed on package. With the bag upside down, spray back and forth in smooth even strokes, lightening the application as you work toward the middle so the color fades out, creating an ombré effect.

STIFFENED FABRIC BUTTERFLIES
YOU WILL NEED:
- ¼ yard linen fabric
- Scissors
- Fabric stiffener
- Satin paint: Pink Dahlia
Follow instructions on the bottle to stiffen the linen fabric. Let dry completely. Use a stencil brush with Pink Dahlia and follow general stenciling instructions. Use scissors to cut around the butterfly shapes and attach to pin backs. Gently fold the butterflies to create a dimensional look.

  • I just saw your new line of craft paint at Michael's. I was thinking of purchasing some of the satin colors to paint on glass. I was wondering what the correct way is to thin the paints. It says not to use water on the box. Is there anything special that has to be done to the glass before or after painting on it? Not much information at the store.

  • I think the spray paint kit is such a cool idea I would love to try it.

  • With this kit, I could get rid of half of my paints and replace with these multitaskers.

  • After all the damage and flooding in my basement from Hurricane Irene it would put a huge smile on my face if I won this goodie bag. After all the hard work and cleanup I just want to get back to normal and start my crafts projects again. Thank you

  • My 8 year old and her friend used the fabric medium with pearl colours and butterfly stencils on t-shirts. Followed the directions and they came out great. Even washed them.

  • Brilliant! this stuff looks gorgeous!! I'd love to win;)

  • Please help me.....I am trying your paints this fall, and need to paint on glass, do not have the 21 days to wait for the paint to 'cure'. I sell my glassware and do not always have the time for the air drying. In the past I have used other paints for glass and there was a 'baking time' in the oven at about 330 degrees. I was told there was a medium for the paint that could be used along with the baking. I am unable to find any? Help me, I am about to start a lot of projects and would like to use this paint. beverlee

  • Crafter Comment:

    Hi Beverlee,

    The bake method for our paints is as follows-
    after drying for 1 hour, place in cool oven. Set temp to 350 degrees F and bake for 30 min. (Glass must heat gradually) After 30 min turn the oven off. Let glass cool completely in oven. Don’t use for 72 hours.
    Air dry method: it will cure after 21 days and it will be dishwasher top-shelf safe!

    There are a few mediums in the paint collection- If you want it to be more translucent, you can use the Antiquing Medium, which is good for making a wash of color.

  • Crafter Comment:

    Hi Bev,

    Before painting your glass, make sure it is clean. There is no need to thin the paint. If you would like a more translucent effect, add the Antiquing Medium to the paint- it is good for making a wash of color. The Glazing Medium will thin your paint as well, it is optimal when coating and dipping glasses.

    After painting-
    Bake method: after drying for 1 hour, place in cool oven. Set temp to 350 degrees F and bake for 30 min. (Glass must heat gradually) After 30 min turn the oven off. Let glass cool completely in oven. Don’t use for 72 hours.
    Air dry method: it will cure after 21 days and it will be dishwasher top-shelf safe.

  • Can't wait to try the new paints.

  • Love a product that gives me an idea! Would absolutely love to win this kit! Until then, I guess I just have to go shopping and try the new Plaid paints. Thanks Martha, for the chance to win the set!

  • Love all these things!

  • I am loving the new paint. I've used every single type - pearl, glitter, metallic and its simply amazing.

  • Just watched the video an now my mind is running a mile a minute. This new paint looks fabulous and I cannot wait to work with it, where I win or not. Good luck to all you crafters. Craft On!

  • I used this paint to paint on fabric and would like to know if the fabric can be washed after I have applied the paint?

  • I love products that can be used in so many different ways. I have so many fantastic ideas and I am excited to switch to these new paints eliminating the need for several different mediums. It will save space in my small craft room.

  • Dear Martha and sweet crafty team. You people made such an incredible line of paint. I bought 20 different colours the other day and can't wait to find the time to 'play' with it. I have like a billion idea's in my mind to work with. Thanks for offering and coming up with these beautiful products and for the opportunity to win this goodie bag! Love it.

    Inky hugs, Pauline

  • [...] Martha Stewart Craft Paint [...]

  • [...] would like to  – very gladly – announce the Martha Stewart Craft Paint line as my Most Craved for Craft Product of the Year. I can easily state that this versatile, [...]

  • I bought this paint last weekend and have used the satin and the pearl paint on Wood signs. They are beautiful and easy to work with. I have also used the paint on glass along with the glitter paint and love it. Thank you for creating this wonderful craft paint. The colors are terrific.

  • So excited about these--I have a huge troop of Daisy Scouts, and it will be great to buy ONE paint that we can use on all of our projects instead of buying different paint for every surface. Awesome--and a much better use of our funds!

  • I've just bought Martha's ENTERTAINING Book, and I simply love, love it. I'm getting into the stenciling quite a bit too. It's so fun.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  • I love all the Martha Stewart Craft items I have already
    bought!

  • I LOVE Martha Stewart's Crafts!

  • I cannot tell you enough how excited I am for this line of products! Working in theatre, I often have a hard time finding paint that will fit my needs and now I don't need to look any further! Thanks!

  • How exciting! I cannot wait to try these out! That they can be used on multiple substrates is perfect!

  • These paints look fabulous. A paint for so many surfaces is sure to save me space, time and my wallet.

  • I've always wanted to try painting glass, and this kit looks perfect!!

  • Is it safe to use these all-purpose paints to decorate baby onesies? Can they hold up after being machine-washed several times as fabric paints?

    Hi Alex,
    Yes our paints are permanent on fabric. If you heat set it after painting, it can be washed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle. I would then hang it to dry. Directions for heat setting are as follows:

    Heat Setting to Cure Technique – Allow your decorated fabric to air dry 24 hours then heat set using either one of two recommended methods.
    Dryer Method – Turn garment inside out; place item in dryer for 30 minutes on highest setting allowed for the type of fabric used.
    Iron Method – Place decorated item right side up on ironing board; cover with dry pressing cloth. Set iron to highest setting allowed for fabric used. Place dry iron (no steam) on area pressing for 30 seconds, lift iron moving to another area until all sections are heat set.

  • I am still wondering (as Alex asked) if these paints are safe to use on baby clothing? We're also doing onesie decorating at a baby shower and would hate to use anything that is potentially unsafe for the baby.

    Hi Caitlin,
    Yes our paints are safe to use on baby clothing. It's a water based, non-toxic paint. The only thing to note is that it is NOT food-safe, but that is something that is consistent across all products in the industry.

  • question re craft paint. I want to paint an outdoor birdfeeder made of unfinished wood. I plan to spray a primer which is oil-based on frets. Will there be a problem if i then use acrylic gloss finish paint?

    Hi Susan,
    If you use a primer first that is not Martha Stewart brand, we just cannot guarantee with certainty that our paint will have the same indoor/outdoor durability that you are looking for. Our paint in and of itself is a primer and paint in one, so you can always just paint our paint directly on the unfinished wood surface.

    Best of luck!
