Welcome to the weekend. In case you are looking for a craft project to tackle this weekend we’ve got just the one for you. Create these DIY Tinted Mason Jar Candles. If you have ever wanted to change the color of glasses now you can with Plaid’s new Martha Stewart Liquid Fill glass paint. This new product is a must have item for the avid crafter. You will be absolutely amazed at all the things you can transform. We recently discovered a great project that highlights this item very well. Jen of Something Turquoise created these mason jar candles. They are fabulous!
With the new Martha Stewart Glass Paint line you will be able to learn while crafting, and explore new techniques. A few designers over in the Martha Stewart craft department were crafting and discovered how to create marbled glassware with the glass paints. This is a great way to jazz up some glasses for your next event or party, and since our paint is dishwasher safe, your design is certain to last. This craft is very easy and you can try it many ways to achieve dazzling results. To see a quick tutorial on how to make your own marbled glassware click here.
