Attention fellow crafters, your messy box of paints is about to get a facelift. I recently came across Folk Art Multi Surface Paint and it’s a complete game changer. Not only can you use it on just about any surface, but it’s also it’s dishwasher safe and machine washable. That’s right, no more juggling between paints when crafting on different surfaces. Pair it with the new Handmade Charlotte Stencils (both available at Michaels), and you have yourself endless possibilities.

If you want your studs to be more than one color, you’ll need to tape off your design. I also stuck mine in cork so that I could paint freely.

Apply your first color. The paint is so thick that there really isn’t a need for a second coat!

Remove tape when wet then let dry before moving on to the next section of color. When finished, you’ll want to seal your paint (I just used Mod Podge) when completely dry.

Apply a dap of E-6000 glue and place your earring back. Let dry then fold over the sides of the stud inwards.

While waiting for the earrings to dry, I decided to make a monogrammed gift box using the Handmade Charlotte stencils and left over Plaid paint. How great is it that I didn’t need to pour new paint?!
