Yes, you read that right. A washable decoupage from Martha Stewart Decoupage. Amazing, right? And it is available at Michael’s.
I was so excited when I first saw Martha Stewart’s washable and durable decoupage. I knew I needed to try it asap.
Using Martha Stewart’s quality supplies, I got to work.
The supplies I needed were:
1 clear glass plate
Martha Stewart Durable Matte Finish Decoupage
Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Craft paint in Pea Shoot
Martha Stewart Soft Bristle Decoupage Brushes
Martha Stewart Decoupage Paper Doilies
I love that doilies are becoming such a huge trend and I thought they would be just the look I was hoping for. I was right.
Using a fair amount of Durable Matte Finish, I covered a small area on the BOTTOM of my plate with decoupage. I then carefully placed my doilies on the decoupage. Once they looked smooth, I bushed more decoupage on the doilies. I did at least 3 coats of decoupage waiting for it to dry in-between which took 2-3 hours, each time.
Twenty-four hours later when the decoupage was dry, I was ready to paint. Using Martha Stewart’s Multi-Surface Craft Paint in Pea Shoot, I started to paint the BOTTOM of my plate.
After one coat, I let it dry and started again. Using 4 coats altogether. Again, letting it dry 2-3 hours in-between coats.
Isn’t she just gorgeous? I love the look of the doilies and the paint under my plate. It has a pretty look and adds dimension to a regular clear glass plate. The quality of the Martha Stewart Decoupage supplies was unsurpassed! They definitely exceeded my expectations.
I could now use my plate made with Martha Stewart Decoupage and Paint as a beautiful addition to our home. I could hang her in the kitchen, serve fruit on her, or even place my grandma’s vintage brush , comb and lipstick set on her.
The Decoupaged Doilies and the Pea Shoot Satin Paint highlight the depth and colors in the comb and brush set. I love it!
AND, did you know after 21 days of curing, I can wash my Martha Stewart Washable Decoupaged & Painted Plate on the top rack of my dishwasher? Leave it to Martha Stewart to come up with Durable and Washable Decoupage. You have a choice of either a Matte and Shiny finish. AWESOME.
More advantages to using this new line: You can also decoupage fabric, lace, trims, oilcloth and paper!
