Wine Glasses and Painting Them

by Lia
(Marlboro, nj, usa)

Thank you so much--- after days of searching, I found your website and it has been so helpful!

I bought wine glasses thinking I would paint them. I have been using non toxic oil based paint markers.. The next day, I put a coat of non toxic delta sealant and varnish over it (a mix). After that dries I stick in a cold oven, let the oven reach 350*, it hangs out in the hot oven for about 30 minutes, and is let to cool in the oven.

Why is my paint still chipping when I run my nail on it?!!! I'm not quite sure what to do at this point. And then putting a cold drink in my cup allows condensation and makes the paint chip off more.

(Plus, I'm terrified of the fumes Im breathing in when it's baking!!)

Please help!!!

Thanks for your guidance :)

Oil Markers and Delta Sealer - don't mix
by: Cheryl

Hi Lia,
I would recommend you use paints made specifically for painting on glass or try the new
multi surface acrylic paints that have come out. http://decoart.com/multisurface/
or try http://www.plaidonline.com/multi-surface-paint/brand/detail.htm

I'm not familiar with the mix you're referring to but I do know that Delta is water based acrylic polymer
and if you used oil underneath it will definitely not work. Plus I too would be concerned about fumes.

Invest in the proper paints for perfect results every time.
And don't forget to wash and then use rubbing alcohol to wipe down the glass surface.
Avoid handling the surface your painting on by wearing cotton or medical gloves.

I hope this helps.
