I recently got the chance to try these great new products from the Martha Stewart glass painting program, and let me tell you I’m in love!  I had a lot of fun painting the clings, mixing colors, a trying a few techniques. They are so easy I even let my 3 year old give it a try (her results were beautiful too).

I used Martha Stewart paintable clings ‘flowers and leaves’, transparent fill, and a bit of frost fill. All these products are available at Michaels.

Painting the clings is done very easily by just using the tip of the bottle (color like you are using a marker) but don’t squeeze, the fill will flow at the proper rate.

TIP: A few extra things you might want on hand are -a paper towel to dab up accidental over filling, a toothpick (incase you get any air bubbles), and a tiny paintbrush if you want to experiment mixing the colors.

Once your clings are painted to perfection, allow them to completely dry (a few hours).  While you’re waiting you can prepare a photo frame. I found my frame at a thrift shop for $1! I gave it a quick coat of spray paint and cut a piece of plain card-stock to fill the frame.

When my clings were dry I simply peeled them off the plastic backing and right onto the galss of the photo frame. Instant art, easy-peasy!  If you tire of this masterpiece you’ve created, no biggie- the clings peel right off (they are still useable for another project) and you can replace them with another!

      Thanks Jenn! My favorite thrift is of course Frenchy’s, but when I get to the city I can’t resist Value Village (that is where this frame came from)
