The first thing you need before starting is a glass. A popular choice for entrees is a glass plate or glass of wine. The function of the glass will determine what type of paint you want to use.
If you use dishes or other utensils that need to be washed, you should choose a paint that contains thermosetting. This is a paint that dries in the oven to last longer. If you are looking for glass painting supplies, you can buy them from Art Glass Supplies.
A common canvas art brush works well on glass. You can also apply paint with a sponge to add different textures. Masking tape can be used to cover the glass in the area you want to clean. The tape also holds the template in place to follow the design.
Before applying paint to the glass, you should wash it well and let it dry. Avoid touching the glass with your fingers, because the oil on your skin can prevent the paint from sticking.
Next, you need to dip the cotton ball in isopropyl alcohol and gently rub the glass with wet cotton. Let the glass dry completely, which should only take a few minutes. This is to make sure there are stains on the glass or oil is removed from your hands or soap so it doesn't affect the paint when applied.
