:wave: Sorry again for not being here more....sometimes I come in here and take a look around but saddly I don't always have the time to post comments or message.

The art is always deliceous and the techniques look so much fun...:thumbsup:

Anywho, today I write to you mixedupmedium folks because I was thinking of trying out something.

I would love to try a reverse collage technique on glass then maybe add acrylic paint accents on top of the glass to give it more depth.

Is there anything I should apply on the glass before painting on it to give more tooth. (Something transparent because I don't want to alter the look of the glass so I can see most of the collage trought it.) Or is there something that goes on top to protect the paint? I never painted on glass before and I know that paint can peel of of it...

You should probably use a specialized glass paint for this project. Blick sells some (http://www.dickblick.com/categories/glassdecoration/#glasspaints) and there's a tutorial here: http://painting.about.com/od/paintingforbeginners/ss/PaintingGlass.htm

Also, I did a search on glass painting, because I know we've had some of it at the site, and found a bunch in the Decorative Arts forum; examples:

There are lots more; just do a search on "glass paint" without the " marks.
