Deka Cristal and Deka Transparent paints have been formulated specifically for painting on non-porous surfaces such as glass, metal and ceramics.
Before painting it is important to clean off any grease or dirt from the surface of the glass. Wash in warm soapy water, rinse and dry with a lint free cloth. Try to handle the glass as little as possible to prevent transfer residue back onto the surface.

Cocktail sticks, kitchen paper and cotton buds are ideal tools for fixing mistakes. Dip in water for water based paints or white spirit for solvent based paints.
The Glass Painting Explorer pack (this link will take you to the George Weil website) is a good way to get started with glass painting and includes a selection of glass shapes, 3 jars of Deka Cristal and a brush.
We also have a selection of glass shapes on offer in addition to the glass paints and out liners. Visit the Glass Painting section of the George Weil website to find out more.
