Gloss Enamels are multi-surface, gloss, acrylic paints that boast a smooth, thick consistency. Multi-surface, opaque paint that adheres to glass, wood, papier mâché, plastic, resin, ceramics, and many other craft surfaces.
Shake well. Clean surface with alcohol. Apply 1-2 coats with a brush or sponge. Allow to cure 4 days. For a dishwasher-safe finish on oven-safe surfaces, place finished piece in a cool oven, set temperature to 325°F, bake for 30 minutes, then cool with oven door partially open. Not for direct contact with food. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Cleans up with soap and water.
Use a light touch, and try not to apply too much pressure with the tip of the brush. Pushing down too hard will cause the paint to wipe off the slippery surface of the glass. Instead, use a light touch and allow the paint to flow off the brush, creating a pool of color. This allows you to create thicker, more solid coverage in one step. If you do need a second coat, make sure to let it dry completely first.
Avoid overworking or re-stroking wet paint areas too much, or you will end up removing the paint from the glass. Get in and get out of the area.
Use a hair dryer on a low setting to speed up the drying time if necessary. A fan can also be used. This can be especially helpful when working on cylinders or pieces with multiple sides.
Keep paint away from food surfaces and the areas that will come in contact with your mouth as you don't want to ingest it.
Always blot your brush on a paper towel to dry it after rinsing in water. You don't want excess water to remain in the brush while painting.
All types of brushes can be used for glass painting, but can provide different results. Synthetic brushes tend to create visible brushstrokes. Soft, natural-hair brushes allow for more paint to be applied in one stroke, creating smoother coverage.
