Painting on Glass

Glass Painting Blog

We didn’t know our oil paint could do this, but as a result of a customer’s query to us about using our paints on glass, we discovered that it can be used to paint on glass and glassware.

Here’s how it works:

Vegan Oil Paints on Glass
Colors of Nature Oil Paints on Glass
Paint your image on the glass. The thickness you paint will determine how opaque or transparent you want the image to be. You can use the paint straight from the tube. Nothing needs to be added to it.

Bake your glass at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour in a convection oven. This will dry the paint and set it to the glass. Let it cool down completely to let the paint set as it cools down. If you notice a tiny mistake after it’s baked and cooled, you can carefully scrape it off.

Your final result will withstand hand-washing and even dishwashing. We imagine that in time, with many repeated washings, it is possible that paint may come off, but if you are careful with your painted glassware, it should last you a very long time. All of our paints are permanent to excellent lightfastness, so they will never fade, even when placed in direct sunlight.

The best part is that Colors of Nature paint is made from all natural ingredients, so it’s safe for you and the environment!

Artist Project Contemporary Art Show

We attended the Artist Project Contemporary Art Show in Toronto the weekend of February 20-22 2015, which hosted hundreds of beautiful and thought-provoking pieces of art from a variety of contemporary artists. We were pleased to see Silvia Taylor, the glass and copper artist who makes our one-of-a kind glass mullers, show her stunning art pieces:

I love all of Silvia’s pieces, but I especially appreciated the beauty of this monochromatic display of glass forms.

These pieces are equally striking in their ability to balance themselves, offering an unexpected collaboration between form and physics.
