How to Paint on Glass

How to Paint on Glass

by JuliaBottrell (Author)


This volume helps readers reproduce the look of stained glass, through the craft of glass painting. Transparent paints combine with piped "liquid leading" from a tube to create a wide variety of desirable objects made from glass, plastic or acetate. Some of the items it is possible to create include window panels, candle-shades, acetate greeting cards, easy-to-make suncatchers, and boxes and baubles. Old jam jars, bottles and acetate packaging can be transformed into attractive items. The book shows readers: how to paint on both flat and vertical surfaces, how to create paint effects; how to add exotic "jewels", beads, and gold and silver "leading"; and other techniques, such as using shrink plastic and creating stick-on, peel-off temporary suncatchers.
