Late Breaking Plaidie Laddie

Welcome to another installment of ASK PLAIDIE LADDIE!


Plaidie Laddie, loyal Plaid pooch and one of our blog contributors, wants to answer your most burning painting questions. Every week he’ll pick a question out of his virtual mailbag and answer it (with a little help from me, since he only has paws). This week’s question came in late this afternoon and Plaidie Laddie wanted to make sure we answered it today since this week we’ve been so focused on the beach:

“Dear Plaidie Laddie, I love the Nautical Glass Set featured in the email newsletter I received today from PlaidOnline. Can I paint those glasses and then leave them in my outdoor patio?” Suné from California

We’re so glad you like the glasses, they really catch the eye. Yes! You can paint the glasses with FolkArt Enamels and leave them on your patio. However! You want to make sure you leave them in a safe place — you don’t want to come outside to find broken glass — and extended exposure to rain may wear away some of the paint, so it’s best to store them in a cabinet or bar whenever possible. Make sure to cure the glasses properly (learn how here), and hand wash them. You should be able to enjoy them for many summers!
