Painting Glass

Project Ideas Stained Glass Tutorials

We often get questions about paint on glass, and here's a bit of info for the curious.

 

Glass paint comes in powder form until diluted with water or glycerin. At that point it becomes ink-like in consistency until it dries back into a powder. It's painted on when wet, and then fired in a kiln after it's dry. While it's dry, it's easily smudged and wiped off of the glass, so it's imperative that it's handled carefully so as to not ruin the work. ⁠

And while working with it, one needs to wear a respirator as the paint powder is a hazardous material! Here's Vasile demonstrating proper safety protocol and mastery.
