New project, Please HELP
Not sure this is the forum I should post this, but I'm hoping to get some help since this is a home decor/decorative art project:
It all starts with an idea......
While remodeling our kitchen, I began researching various backsplash, aka splashback, products. Don't want anything to do with tiles or grout.
I thought it would be cool if I did a colorful 'back painting' on glass. I like the idea of glass 'cause I can get it in custom shapes, large pieces, and it's an easy cleanup material. The color would be placed on the backside of the glass against the wall, so I would not be touching the color at all after installation.
My question is, since I have never seen this done, what do I use for color? Paint, ink, etc? Is there special glass paint, ink? How do I apply it?
Do I need to prep the glass before I apply color?
Are there any video tutorials that show how to do 'Back Painting', and make an abstract design, or the illusion of texture, using paint or ink on glass?
If all goes well I may want to repeat the design on a glass dining room table top and glass cocktail table top. I'm probably going to need to get tempered glass, especially for the tables.
I would sincerely appreciate any advise or help on this new project, 'cause I haven't got the foggiest idea where to begin. Thanks
