Question Possible to use paint markers on glass without stroke markings?

Hi.

Part 1:
Is it possible to use paint markers on glass without seeing stroke markings in the finished product? Is there a marker that can do that or is there an additional product that will blend the strokes on the glass? I'm doing some lettering on a window pane, but I want to use a "pen" type of applicator rather than a brush.

Part 2:
According to this comparison chart of paint markers for glass [PDF; single page], I have found two markers that match the criteria I'm looking for in a paint pen which is permanent as well as lightfast. "The Pebeo Porcelaine 150" [Dickblick] is opaque and the "Pebeo Vitrea 160" [Dickblick] is transparent.

Looking forward to your input.
Thanks!

Moved this to Decorative Arts in the hope someone may know how to answer. ....... not sure Acrylics was right place but it can be moved back if necessary.

Thanks! In my mind, I was thinking about "painting on windows" and since I work in acrylics, I posted it in that mindset.

Re: Possible to use paint markers on glass without stroke markings?

I've done some glass projects and found even pens tend to smear. But, as always, practice improves the final piece. There aren't too many techniques for making it work, but here's one that I like:
  1. Clean glass with soap and water to remove dirt and any manufacturing debris/oil. Rinse well. Stay away from glass cleaners because most contain silicone which is notoriously difficult to remove and will prevent paint - acrylic or oils - from adhering.
  2. Clean once more - after it has dried - with denatured alcohol. This removes any soap residue.
  3. Slowly - oh so slowly - apply paint in one direction only and do not go back over it. Think of it as a slow race.
  4. Allow paint to dry thoroughly. If touch-up is needed now is the time to do it.
  5. Cure paint as per manufacturer's instructions. Most have an extended dry time for curing; up to three or four weeks, and oven (not firing) curing for quicker results is also available - 350 degrees (f) for 30 minutes with slow cooling.

One of the great things about painting with acrylics on glass or ceramics is that it so easy to wipe away and start over.

Thanks for the detailed reply and sorry for the late response, Mike! This is very helpful info!
