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:

Plaid is also generously offering Martha Stewart Craft prize packs for 2 of our lucky readers! To enter the giveaway just leave a comment letting us know what you would paint with these wonderful colors. We will select two winners on Monday, October 10th.

    The paints are beautiful and have a nice range of coordinating colors in the different finishes. I like the pearlescent metallics, which I will be using for some of my holiday packaging and decor. I also intend to do high end gift tags for sale, and the metallics and glitters will be great for those. Everything coordinates – the paints with the sticker and embellishments lines too.

    How breathtaking these paints are. I am a paper crafter so I definitely would use the paints on a beautiful paper, creating designs that would then make kusudama flowers. if you paint just right, the center of the kusudama flower can be enhanced beautifully. or if other origami creations are created the same holds true.
