Display and "reveal" treats for your Easter guests with this simple how-to, originally created by the TV art department as a clever way of unveiling finalists' dishes at the 45th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest.
Tools and Materials
- Glass cake dome
- Rubbing alcohol
- Cotton balls
- Martha Stewart Crafts Multi-Surface Paint
Painted Dome How-To:
- Clean glass cake dome thoroughly; prime inside of dome with a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol.
- Paint the inside of the dome with one coat of multisurface paint; let dry for at least one hour. Add a second and third coat, allowing at least one hour of drying time between each.
- Let glass paint cure for at least 21 days before washing.
For the paint to be permanent on the glass, it can be air-dried for 21 days or it can be baked. Baking method: Air-dry 1 hour. Place in cool oven and heat to 350 degrees (glass needs to heat gradually). Bake 30 minutes, then let cool in oven. Wait 72 hours until using.
