One of the projects I was anxious to get to on vacation was trying out the new glass paint I recently purchased. In the past I've used the Plaid Folk Art Enamels. I have the complete set (purchased at a painting convention years ago), so even though I wasn't always happy with their consistency or coverage I hated to buy other kinds since I had all of these. However now they are getting old and dried up so I was very interested in the Martha Stewart Crafts line of glass paint, also by Plaid. I saw a beautiful project by Debra Mills in the June 2014 issue of PaintWorks magazine that used just two of them--Frost and Pearl so it was a great way to experiment.
Here are just some of the glass projects I easily created using these paints. I have to say that I love the applicator tip bottle which makes it so easy to do line work. The paint is a nice consistency and covered well...both when sponged on and applied. Now I just have to try some of the colored paint!
The glasses shown at the top would be a lovely set for a bridal party.
They have such a lovely lace look.

On this large plate I painted on the back side so that all of the plate could be used with food.
Fancy martini glasses...I added a design on the foot of the glass too.

A covered apocrathy jar. I'm going to display this with a battery tea light in it.
I have lots of these vases in the stash. What a great wedding or shower centerpiece this would be.
