How to Use Enamel Paint on Fused Glass

Hello! Today I want to give you some tips for painted fused glass. I hope these tips can help avoid some beginner frustrations! A side note: This excerpt is based solely on my personal opinion and should only be used as a guideline and jumping-off point for enhancing your creative potential.

I use glassline paint to paint 90 or COE glass 96. Glassline paints can be purchased at Delphi Glass and other fusing glass sites. Glassline recommends thinning the paint, but I've never had one for that. If you dilute it too much, the paint will simply run off the tip of the applicator. When you buy your paint, be sure to buy at least 2 silver tips. You can also go online to purchase Glassline paints at www.artglasssupplies.com/glassline-metallic-copper-fusing-paint.

The tips are not included with the paint, and I haven't found these tips for quite some time. These tips are simply screwed onto the painted surface and then ready for use. Paint can be applied over the glass (my preferred method) or between layers of glass.

Closing Tip:

If you are creating a design using three or more paints, the tips wear off very quickly. I cut a piece of thin wire found in my toolbox that I have on hand to use for jewelry-related wire wrap projects. Just insert the wire into the end and it should be clear.

Clean:

Here is my top advice for you! Most stores that sell fused glass have small squeeze bottles, as well as tips on mixing the paint as well as thinning the paint. Buying one of these inexpensive plastic bottles can save you a lot of time.

Here's how I use them. When I'm done painting, I take the tip of a Glassline bottle. Replace the Glassline bottle and then the cap that came with the bottle. This is a great way to keep your tips in good shape. If you put them in a paint bottle, they will clog and cut down on production.
