Step 1:

First take a picture or pattern you like to paint and trace it on a butter / tracing paper using a fine tip marker pen.

Step 2:

Take a glass piece on the basis of the said pattern?s length and breadth. Thoroughly clean the glass surface with soap water or use thinner for cleaning. Use cotton or clean cotton cloth for cleaning. Make sure that glass surface is always clean clear and dry before starting the painting process.

Step 3:

Place the glass piece over a flat surface table. Paste the proposed glass painting pattern underneath the glass piece using a glue or gum. This will ensure not to move the pattern or even glass piece to either direction.

Step 4:

Now time to start your process of doing outlining directly from tube or using piping bag (corn). While making outline you must be very careful because your outlines should be thin, clear and precise with out scratches and cuts. Always remember to draw outline in one direction either from top to downwards or from down to top wards. Once the outlining process is over, let it remain there for 3 to 4 hrs for drying.

Step 5:

Once the outlined areas get dried, you can start your painting. Try to decide the colors in advance which you are going to apply. This will help you to fasten up your entire painting process. Apply glass paint on the outlined area very carefully and without scurry. You can directly apply the glass paint from the bottle itself or use dropper for dropping the colors. You can also use a brush for spreading colors. Always remember to burst bubbles using a pin tip or needle. Once the painting is over, let the painted glass remain there for 1 to 2 days without moving and trembling for drying.
