Join me in thanking our next Martha Craft Week sponsor, Plaid. Plaid has been a staple in the industry for years, producing high-quality craft products in multiple genre. Their latest release of Martha Stewart Craft Paints is one of the most exciting paint products to come out in a long time. We love the color palate, and that the paints can be used on multiple surfaces, indoors or out, and are even dishwasher safe! Of course, the accessories Martha and Plaid designed for this line are also impressive: brushes, daubers and my personal favorite, a spray applicator!
The glitter line is one of my favorites. This paint is perfect to glitz up all your holiday projects.
Can’t paint a straight line? Try the Stencils in the Martha line. Shapes, florals, letters… All Martha-approved and lovely!
How crazy cool is this striping brush? I’d love to try this on my scrapbook pages!
Need to cover a larger surface with an ultra smooth finish? Try the revolutionary spray painting kit. This turns any of the satin finish paints into spray paint:
