How to Paint Glass

Finally I manage to get this How To Do Glass Painting up in my blog. I hope my instructions are clear. It may seems easy but trust me it is not that easy after all, unless you have a steady hand when you are drawing your design. As that is the hardest part in glass painting, especially drawing on a surface curve.

1. Spirit
2. Glass painting
3. Glass container
4. Out liner
5. Brush
6. Cotton bud

Before you start, just pour some spirit into the glass container to dip your brush. The spirit will prevent the glass paint to harden. So wash your brush with the spirit every time after use. Besides that wipe the surface you wish to paint with spirit to remove all the dust and oil.

Use the out liner to draw on glass, any design you desire. Imagine that is just a pencil in you hand, draw as you wish.

In order to erase of what ever you don't like, dip the cotton bud into the spirit and wipe off the unnecessary lines.

Once your design is done and let the out liner to dry in about few minutes, right after that you can start putting on the paint.

As you can see, this is just a few finish products that I have done as Christmas presents for my friends.

This is so cool! Good Work Ken! I agree that without steady hands it will be kinda difficult to paint on curve surface..hmm I think porcelain paint work the same way as glass painting too..So I understand the hard work you have been through! The result you produce is so satisfying! Beautiful! Handwork are always the best! Keep up the god skill Ken! :D
