    Hello! 

    I’ve recently started using Glassline glass paints with great results.  It’s very versatile… you can do very graphic line drawings or use them like watercolors.  While I do occasionally get bubbles if I sandwich the image between layers of glass, there are several techniques listed on this discussion board that may overcome that issue. (http://www.warmglass.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=26081&view=previous)

    I’ve used the glass on top of and between glass layers with great results… it’s very fun stuff!  I found my paints on eBay but if you google Glassline paints you’ll find them in various sources.

    For example:

    I really enjoyed Petra’s video :)

    I use about 4-5 different enamels on my work. I will try just about all of them LOL I hate waiting for them to dry so I pop them in my toaster over to dry (designated just for my studio use) 200 degrees for about 10 -15 min. This also helps reduce bubbles with glass line paints some times the bubbles are from mositure.

    Glassline paints are pretty great and they are compatible with 96 and 90.  You can get um in lots of colors including copper and gold.  I bought the pen set and the paints and so far I love them.

    You can cap it but the liquid causes bubbles.  Technically you should wait for it to dry before you cap, unless you like the bubbled look.  I made a pendant that I was too impatient to wait for and it came out looking like an explosion.  Kinda cool, but still ruined.

    Hi, I cap with clear fine frit. I let the paint dry overnight then put a generous layer of frit down on top . I try to even it out so there are no holes or low spots. It fuses wonderfully flat with no air bubbles.
