Glass Painting 101

Plaid provides abundant inspiration and how-to's for any preference.
Here's what you need to get started:
- Project Surface
- Project inspiration / pattern
- Liquid Lead
- Leading Lines
- Gallery Glass Window Color
- Masking tape
- Paper towel
- Craft knife
- Before applying Gallery Glass Window Color to the leaded shape, hold the bottle upside down, shake well to move the paint towards the bottle tip. This will keep the paint towards the tip and prevent air bubbles being squeezed into your project.
- If you notice an air bubble in your project while the paint is still wet, carefully pop the bubble using a toothpick.
- For a more uniform look, "comb" Gallery Glass Window Color after it has been painted using a toothpick, the tip of a nut pick, or a straight pin.
