In fact, how could I do anything but try them out and tell you all about them!
I decided to use the silk screen stencils they sent me and paint a delicate design on a champagne glass. My idea was that this would be perfect to do something like this for a wedding gift!
Here are the supplies that Plaid sent me:
And this is what my sad, unpainted champagne glass looked like before it was silk-screened:
Once I got the hang of it, the silk screens were easy to apply (and you can even wash and reuse them) that I was able to do all of this with the kids running around! I mean, I won't lie, there might have been a few unauthorized crayon drawings on the walls during my craft session, but hey, what's a magic eraser for anyway?
So the steps are here:
Apply the silk screen to the glass then paint onto the stencil using a small brush. Remove the stencil before the paint dries and wash and allow the stencil to completely dry for reuse.
Once finished, this is what my pretty little glass looked like:
Cute, isn't it?
