I have tried a variety of techniques to apply paint, from brushes (including a tooth brush) to sponges and even fingers. Using a sponge allows me to layer the colors for unique combinations and shading possibilities for more definition. I also use a dry erase marker to lay out the design before I paint anything on the glass, it saves time, paint and money!

Thank you Molly for your inquiry for painting on acrylic chandelier crystals. You asked what paints to use and my advice was to use transparent artist grade acrylics because they adhere perfectly to an acrylic surface. No need for glass paint here.

Molly took on this project with great zeal and the end result is amazing! What a fun make over.

She writes, "Here's the final product! Hope you like it. I took some beads from a beaded curtain and embellished a little further; added more bits & bobs and voilĂ ! :o)"

Many thanks for letting me post this for other creative people to admire.
