Quick Question

I have been wanting to paint on glass (i.e. bowls) but I have no idea what paint to use! Any ideas? Thanks for reading!

I painted on glass for years and use craft enamel paint. Once the paint dries for about 14 days, it is washable. I have cups that I painted 10 years ago, wash in dishwasher (top shelf) and paint is still on the cups.

Re: Quick Question

Acrylic paint will stick to glass, but I don't think it will be durable. Keep it away from water and it should be okay.

Watch your pigments. No cadmium, no cobalt, no heavy metals.
A painting is never really done as long as I can get my hands on it.

Re: Quick Question

They make craft paint specifically for glass and glazed ceramics now. It's fairly durable for hand washing too but if you want really durable glass/ceramic painting that will last through anything, buy the kind you bake after painting.

I have used the first kind many times and am happy with the result. I have never used the baking kind yet but may in the near future.
