  • glass painting help

    I've been having a go at glass painting. I'm pretty hopeless but I'm enjoying it.
    Anyway, what I'm stuck with is why does the outliner and paint stick to something (eg a piece of paper or toher glass?) I'll try and explain better.

    I made some glass chritsmas decorations for my children about a month ago. They fully dried - lol I left them for days. Anyway, after a few weeks I put one ontop of the other in a box so the children didn't see them and I just gone to look at them and they have stuck together? Why. I haven't used the paint to peel off and stick somewhere else, just regular outliner and paint

    any ideas, and any tips gratefully welcomed

    It's all down to science.

    The surface you have painted onto is smooth and shiney (glass) and there is nothing for the paint to grab onto.
    Therefore when you put something else onto the paint, the paint surface is attracted to the the other paint surface. The pull from the paint is greater that that of the paint to the glass.

      So does that mean I won't be able to wrap up these glass decorations in wrapping paper

        I've used glass paints in the past and not had any problems with the paint sticking to anything else. In fact I've still got them now years later and they've been packed quite a few times. But just for future reference you might be better to buy the glass paint that you can cook in the oven, that has outliners too.

          thank you - I think the bake in the oven paints might be the way to go

            You probably won't have a problem with the black or grey outliners, just the metallic ones for some reason. You can get round this by going over your design with some clear once everything has dried - be careful not to use to many brush strokes though! I always found the silver outliner was the worst offender for this!

              I always wrapped my stuff in tishoo paper, which seemed OK but NOT bubble wrap which seemed to stick to the paint every time.

                Hiya

                You may find the reason the ouiner sticks maybe because of the make,,,,,Marabu ouliner always drys sticky and i have given up on the stuff( Rainbow glass outliner is soooo much better).
                A little tip , if you are still having trouble with "stickiness" coat the itm with a thin layer of good quality yacht varnish or better still , toddle along to your local car spares place.They should stock spray cans of clear laquer, and apply a thin coat
                All the best
