Last week I got in the mail some love from my friends over at DecoArt.

It’s not a secret that I love their products and their affordable quality paints.

I have used their paints time after time, from painting pillows,

to my Halloween Chalkboard Platters, to my kitchen mugs, and I have never been disappointed.

 

 

I wanted to try their new line of Gloss Enamels for my first Halloween project of this  year.

I am so excited to share with you all my new Halloween Stands

while showing you how easy it is to paint glass and ceramics.

 

 

The level of difficulty of this project is minimum.

This would be a prefect first project if you feel intimidated stenciling or doing  free hand painting.

 

MATERIALS

All you need is a set of Glass Stencil Daubers.

Your choice of Americana Crystal Gloss Enamels.

{ You can find all of the Gloss Enamels at Michaels over in the section with the vases and such }

Your dishes or whatever glass or ceramic you choose to paint.

 

Optional: If you don’t feel confortable doing a free hand stenciling you can purchase

one of the many Americana Gloss Enamels Stick on Stencils.

 

TUTORIAL

To prepare the surface clean the glass with alcohol.

After apply the paint pressing your dauber into the dish gently to make the polka dots.

You can practice first on a foam or paper plate to get to know the consistency of the paint and the amount you need to apply.

 

 

I ended up using the Crystal Gloss Enamels paint on purple and white, for the orange I used the Crystal Gloss Enamels Glitter.

I used different sizes of the daubers to make different sizes of polka dots.

So easy and simple to make.

 

Keep in mind that the paint needs to dry for 4 days and bake for 30 minutes at 275F.

Make sure to read all the instructions on the back of your paint.

After the paint is dried and baked it will be dishwasher safe!

Eek!

 

The little EXTRA… Making candy dish stands.

I thought it would be so much fun to make a candy dish with these plates.

I found at my local store these candle holders that I painted in white.

They were heavy and sturdy perfect to hold the plates.

Then I just set each plate and the bowl on top.

 

You can even hot glued them together if you want.

 

The point is to make your dishes or any glass or ceramic surface your own.

Here is another idea for you.

Months ago as part of our kitchen makeover I made a set of 1 to 6 numbered soup mugs for our kitchen

using as well DecoArt Americana Gloss Enamel paint.

I hope you guys have fun while making your own creations.

    Love this! I have some items saved for this very idea.

    Can you tell me if this same process would work for me. I have a ceramic nativity cookie jar received as a gift. The top has a cloud/rainbow handle that looks horrible and totally out of place. I want to paint over this in a matching shade for the roof. Thanks!
