Glaze after paintng on glass

When painting with acrylics on glass and baking to cure is it necessary to glaze over the paint to get a nice shine?

Glaze after paintng on glass

Hi there!
Cheryl here from Your Decorative Painting Resource.
Your question has me concerned....

I do hope you are using paints made specifically for painting on glass. And if you are, there is no need to glaze them unless you're using flat opaques and want to make them more glossy. Most enamel-based paints are very shiny so there's no need of a glaze. Just follow the manufacturer's instructions for air-curing and then bake. Instructions vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

However, if you are painting with regular acrylics and hoping to add a glaze and hope this will preserve your work...it won't. Not even if you bake them.
