I'm Lindsey Ralston and this is how to use Martha Stewart's glass paint. Today, I'm going to show you how to use Martha Stewart's glass paint in a fun and simple way to add polka dots to one of your glass encased candles that you may have purchased from a store. This fun project is easy and simple to do and lets go ahead and get started. To get started you want to take your, the item of glass that you are using and use rubbing alcohol to wipe it clean. The reason why you are doing this is to make it so that the paint actually adheres well to the glass. Once you've finished wiping it with the alcohol let it dry for just a few seconds. And then you are ready to get started with Martha Stewart's paint. I'm using a really fun color today. I love this blue color with the orange, it's a nice contrast in my opinion. And what we are going to do now is unscrew the top of the paint. And I've got just this simple round kind of foam tip that you can get at most craft stores to screw on top of Martha Stewart's paint. Go ahead and screw that on. And you want to dab it out on paper a few times just to get the paint to come through the brush tip end. And once you've got that going what you'll do is simply make polka dots around this jar candle. Or around whatever glass piece you are using. Until you get what you like. Once it's done you want to let it set to dry for a couple of hours before starting to use it. And it will fully cure in about 21 days. And once it's cured it's actually top rack dishwasher safe. Obviously I won't be washing my candle but you will be able to do that if you use maybe a wine glass or another type of glass. You'll be able to wash it in the dishwasher.
