Third post for today ,
I love kodachrome and I found it its colors similar to mica enamels.
I am totally stranger to subject but How would I able to print my color photographs on to glass with these colors of enamels ?
Thank you ,

I don’t like giving “can’t do that” types of posts on boards. I figure if someone else is able to do something similar, let them answer the question. That keeps the boards positive and refreshed with new ideas.
That is why I emailed Mustafa directly (he emailed me with the same question). Basically what I told him was that as far as I knew he would not get the results he wanted with mica.

Very fine Mica powders can be used by mixing powders with Klyer Fire into a very thin consistancy. Then adding (less painting than dropping and moving droplets to fill area) All of this has to thoroughly dry and then cap with compatible (to base) glass on top. Remember that Mica is a mineral and therefore will not melt, so the cap has to have a border around it with no Mica coverage. After drying, Mica can also be scratched off to form designs. Hope all this helps!
