How to Paint on Ceramic with Glass Paint

How to Paint on Ceramic with Glass Paint ~ Today I’m sharing a super EASY way to customize a ceramic wind chime. I do mean EASY! I found a super cute wind chime at the dollar store but I found it was missing a little touch of life. I grabbed a stencil and some glass paint from Martha Stewart Crafts #12MonthsOfMartha supplies I received this month and within an hour I had my very own custom wind chime. Yes, it was really that fast!

Customize a Wind Chime with Glass Paint

How to Paint on Ceramic with Glass Paint

– Ceramic Surface to paint on (Wind Chime).
– Adhesive Silkscreen (I used the dragon fly found in Martha Stewart Crafts English Garden silkscreen package.)
– Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint Frost Translucent in Summer Linen.
– Glass Patterning Tape (I used the tape from Martha Stewart Crafts.)
– Foam Pouncer or Dauber (Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint Stenciling Tools.)

Supplies needed to paint on ceramic

Step 1: Cut out the silkscreen you have chosen to paint onto your ceramic surface. Step 2: Remove the backing from the silkscreen and place the silkscreen on the desired location. Optional: You can place some tape around the silkscreen if you want to make sure not to paint the outside of the silkscreen. Step 3: Apply paint unto the silkscreen with the help of a foam pouncer or dauber. Step 4: Allow the paint to dry for 30 minutes before applying a second coat. Step 5: Once your design is completely dry, remove the tape and the silkscreen from the ceramic surface.
