Martha Stewart Glass Paint Opaque or Translucent (click to order)



Step 1 – Clean your bottles inside and out. Use Goof Off or water to take off the labels. Make sure your bottles are completely dry

Step 2 – Squirt a nice amount of paint into the bottom of your glass jar. Spread around all the sides of the glass with a brush until the inside of the bottle is completely covered with paint. Let it sit for 24 hours.

Step 3 – Bake the glass in an oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. You can put the glass directly on the oven rack. Let the glass cool down in the oven. DO NOT try to take it out before it cools. The glass will be VERY HOT.

Step 4 –  Add water to your vase and decorate with flowers!

    Great idea, but I always wonder if you compromise the kashrut of your oven when you bake painted items or melt crayons. Perhaps JOK’s Rabbi can answer?

    This is probably a dumb question but I was wondering if there could be any problems of kashrus with paints?

    I’m certainly not qualified to be a kashrut authority, but the likelihood of meat or dairy being included in paint, is about a minus 1000 percent.

    If you wanted to be off the wall careful, you could wrap the vase in double layers of aluminum foil. The vase would still get hot enough for the paint to seal itself to the wall of the jar.

    And, you could always do this in the oven of a non-Jewish neighbor. You are only going to put flowers or similar items in the vase, not eat or drink from it.
