Thank you for the comments I received on my very first painted glasses. I have progressed a little since then and now have home made soy candles in my painted glass holders, all recycled from the local community.

I love doing this and am so glad I gave it a go!

GLASS PAINTING BY ANGELA WATSON

Marilyn Monroe - hand painted onto clear glass

Hello - my name is Angela Watson and I am from the UK. Some years ago, myself and my friend both tried glass painting while our little girls played together.

I went on to have another daughter, and the glass painting afternoons were put on hold.

A year ago I took it up again, starting with a black and white photo of my eldest daughter and painting a version of it onto glass.

Friends and family commented on the painting, and inspired me to try my hand at different styles of glass painting.

I started to sell some of my work on eBay and decided to set up my own website.

Pieces of my work now feature in private collections across the UK, in the USA, Norway and Spain.

My advice to anyone wanting to try glass painting is keep it simple for a start, then experiment, experiment, experiment! The great thing about glass painting is if you really hate what you've painted, just wash it off and start again!!

Good Luck !

glass bead painting

by Randy Smith
(Tulsa, OK)

Hello, I'm looking for a another way to paint the back of clear glass beads we use in garden art, we glue the painted side down with a clear adhesive. I have tried nail polish which has a lot of bright colors , but seems to fade after exposed to sun for awhile. I've read about the paint and bake methods, but worrying about fading. Any thoughts? Thanks

What would happen if you did not wait 24hrs before baking the item you have painted?

A question about vitrail transparent colors.

by Ziesha
(India)

Hi,
I am fairly new to glass painting and writing to you from south India.

I started off with the basic water based glass paints, proceeded to the solvent based glass paints...then my art store ran out of the usual brand and I bought Lefranc and Bourgeois vitrail transparent colors which are solvent based. When I opened the bottle, it seemed nothing like the usual glass paints I'd used, it was more thick and more sticky and quite frankly hard to get off the brush or anything it touches...

My question is, is there a particular way to use this paint? Should I taper it down with water or spirit? Or is it not really a suitable paint for glass?

I would be eternally grateful if u could answer my query as I'velooked everywhere and its driving me mad.

Thanking you soooooooo much in advance! Please help me out...!
