1. Wash surfaces in warm soapy water. Allow to dry. Wipe with rubbing alcohol to remove any residue.

3. Squeeze a small amount of paint onto foam plate.
4. Load the flat bottom edge of the foam pouncer with glass paint by dabbing into the puddle of paint. Dab a few times more on a clean spot on the foam plate to ensure you have the entire foam pouncer loaded properly.
5. Using Martha Stewart Crafts Spray Paint System, Pool or Spring Pasture Gloss Opaque on saucers and on tray to match stenciling. Allow spray paint to thoroughly dry prior to stenciling.
6. Stencil letters with Pool and Spring Pasture. Stencil accent flowers Geranium. Stencil floral border on tray with Wedding Cake and Geranium.
7. Holding the foam pouncer as you would a pencil, begin dabbing straight up and down over the opening of the adhesive stencil. Continue painting until the entire design area has been completed.
8. Set foam pouncer aside in container of water for cleaning. While paint is still wet, neatly and carefully lift stencil by peeling away from the glass surface. NOTE: Be careful not to drag stencil while removing it as the painted design may be blurred.
9. Continue adding stenciled designs over glass surface until desired effect is achieved. NOTE: When repeating a stenciled letter, it is best to clean the stencil between uses by rinsing in water and allowing the stencil to dry thoroughly.
10. Set completed project aside for 1 hour to thoroughly dry.
11. All glass surfaces painted with Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paints should be cured to increase the paint’s durability on glass or ceramic surfaces. Follow either the Bake to Cure Technique or the Air Cure Technique.
12. Bake to Cure Technique – Set dry silkscreened 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: Glitter Glass Paints should not be baked to cure; only use air cure technique when painting with glitter paints.
