Need Extra Fine tip for painting with Pebeo 160

by Robin
(Colorado)

Hello,

I have been painting glass objects with Pebeo Vitrea 160 paints, curing them in the oven. Even though I have purchased several 0.5mm tips and bottles to try to get very fine detailed lines, they are always too thick.

Is there any way I could possibly locate an extra fine paint pen for this? What about using a Sharpie pen and the coating it with Pebeo before curing to preserve it?


Thank you!

Glass Paint Pens

Hi Robin,
Sharpie makes an oil-based glass paint pen that comes in Extra Fine Point.

You could test the compatibility with The Pebeo Vitrea 160.

I have personally not yet tried the oil-based Sharpie and I usually don't mix brands, so I can't really say. My suggestion would be to do a test piece.

final coat?
by: Anonymous

hi what do you coat the globe with after you paint the glass? what do you recommend as a sealer that won't 'drip' the paint?

final coat on glass over paint with heat
by: Anonymous

I just asked what you use for final coat to seal paints on lamp shade/fixture but also what sealant is heat resistant if lightbulbs heat up or say for a glass candle holder? thanks

Glass paint on lightbulbs
by: Cheryl

The paints you should use for painting on glass shades and fixtures need to be the kind that are heat set in your oven.

These paints don't require a top sealer. They bond to the glass. Copy and paste this link into your browser for detailed information on various glass paints. http://www.your-decorative-painting-resource.com/glass-paint.html

It's not recommended that you paint on light bulbs that produce heat. The paint will burn / melt and give off fumes.

I hope this helps.
