Has anyone had success with screen printing fine detail on glass?
I have heard of people using enamel to screenprint onto glass, but I have not seen the end results for that. They fire the enamel onto the glass too.
Go to our Web site (see below). at least a third of the items on our web site are screen printed. We also sell pre-treated screens and have a tutorial on Screen printing.

I too am looking for some help with screen painting/printing. Very frustrating! I am on your web site and don't see the supplies offered. please help.
Screen printing on glass is a pretty broad topic and ranges from traditional screen printing of wet enamels to dry powder. Stacy Lynn Smith (http://stacylynnsmith.com) works for Bullseye Glass and developed a pretty amazing approach to using traditional screen printing techniques to print with dry glass powder on glass. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any cmprehensive online instructions.

Bullseye has a video lesson (this one is available only with online subscription - $39 per year, and worth every penny!!!!) on powder printing. It is well done and complete. There is also an excellent video lesson on screenprinting at Bullseye.
I got a lot of help by watching 2 DVDs by Tony Glander - they are excellent, and they can be rented if you don't want to buy them - forgot the name of the online craft DVD rental place - sorry.
