How can I paint a glass plate so that I can eat on it?
FolkArt® Enamels are non-toxic,however it is best to keep painted designs and food serving areas separate so that paint never comes into contact with food. When painting a plate for actual use, you must paint on the back using a method called Reverse Painting.
Reverse painting refers to the technique where painting is done on the back of clear glass (such as a plate) but is seen through the glass from the front. Therefore, the design is painted in reverse, with details first and basecoat last. When you have painted a clear glass plate with this technique, food can be placed onto front of plate.
How do I prepare my project for painting with FolkArt® Enamels?
Wash with soap and water. Clean area to be painted with rubbing alcohol.
How do you apply the FolkArt® Enamels Frost colors?
You can stencil, spounce or brush on. The colors will dry to a matte finish and have the same durability of regular FolkArt Enamels.
