55 Glass - Painted Glass
DIY Painted Glass Tips
Are you looking for a uniquely colored glass? It is possible to paint glass to achieve a large variety of colors. 55 Glass does not paint glass, but if you are interested in a "do it yourself" project here are some tips:
You will need:
1) An oil base spray primer in the color of your choice.
In a suitable location, paint one side of the glass sample. Spray from the middle outward trying to avoid spraying paint on the edges. Let it dry thoroughly.
After the paint has dried, inspect the color and if you are happy with the sample, decide if you want to paint a whole piece of glass. If you do, these tips should help:
Make sure the glass is clean and dry. Again, paint the glass from the middle outward to avoid spraying paint on the edges. Don't spray too heavily and it is key to avoid paint pooling or dripping. You can always add more paint, if needed, after the first coat dries.
After the first coat has dried thoroughly, turn the glass with the painted side facing down and inspect to make sure it is completely opaque. If not, you will need to apply more paint. If the paint looks good and you are 100% SURE the paint is dry, it is ready to use.
