How To Paint Fused Glass Efficiently
Hello! Today I want to share with you some hints about fused glass painting. Hopefully, these tips will help eliminate some early frustration! For the record, this article is based on my own opinion and only serves as a suggestion and a jumping-off point for you to expand your creativity.
To paint a glass, obviously, you need glass panting supplies that include glass fusing pens.
Tips do not come with the paint and I did not find this gem for a while. These tips simply screw into the top of the paint and are ready for use. Paint can be applied to glass or between layers of glass.
If you are working on a project to use three or more paint, the tips seem fairly quickly clog. I cut a piece of thin wire that I have in my toolbox for jewelry wire wrapping my project. Simply place the wire to the tip ends, this should clear it. If not, go to the end and put the wire in the end from the inside. This eliminates the thick paint that may have made its way to the end.
Now for the best tip, I have for you! Many fused glass shops will carry small squeeze bottles and tips for mixing paint or thinning it. Purchase one of the low costs of plastic bottles will save a TON of hassle. This is what I use it for.
