Help Finding Paint Which is Appropriate for Glass

Postby Hannah14 » Thu Dec 29, 2016 12:26 pm

I need a paint for glass, preferably with a matt finish and if possible mould-resistant. We have glass paneling behind our kitchen work surfaces/sink/hob etc and the wall behind is painted - however, stains have appeared on the wall behind the glass and we are trying to cover this by painting the glass as a temporary measure. Thanks for any suggestions!

Yes Acrylic Paint is the best thing for this purpose. You can also choose Acrylic Enamel Paint. It does not require heat to set.

Acrylic paints is best way but use also follow some tips for this. Use powdered tempera mixed with very little water and add a little bit of white to all your colors (except the black outline).

What a relief I too have had smelly paint problems, it's driving me mad. I know the paint is new because the decorator had to buy it especially. It was Trade matt emulsion by crown :x I,m now trying cut up oranges all over the house, as apposed to the old wives notion of placing sliced onions everywhere!! HELP! Any ideas!!
