A few weeks ago I reviewed a DIY polka dotted tumbler project on Martha Stewart’s website. I wanted to see if the project was as easy as it looked. I bought the Martha Stewart glass paint and tried it using supplies that I already had at home. I was disappointed with the result. I ended the earlier post promising that I would try this project again using Martha Stewart brand supplies. I did. I was just as disappointed with the project on the second attempt. Don’t waste your time or money on this project.
The project as it appears on the Martha Stewart website.
What it looked like when I did the project.
The Martha Stewart brand patterning tape and pouncer set.
I used a paper punch for the polka dots.
Painting with the pouncer was just as difficult as using a cheap craft sponge. I wanted a even smooth coat of paint on the glass, but the pouncer left a textured coat of paint on the glass.
The paint stretched when I removed the tape. It looked terrible! Do not try this project.
