FAQs

I have seen Gallery Glass® on plates, candle holders and other accessories. Are there any limitations on where Gallery Glass should be applied?
Gallery Glass is recommended for decorative use only. Do not apply to surfaces that will be in contact with food, extreme heat, or wetness. When using on candleholders, test surface first for extreme heat. If the surface where Window Color™ is intended to be placed is too hot to touch, then it is too hot for Window Color.
I would love the look of Gallery Glass, but I'm nervous about applying it directly to my window glass. Is there any other way I can achieve the look of stained glass for my windows?
If you don't want to apply Gallery Glass directly to your windows, you can still create a lovely window design using sheets of plexiglass or acrylic sheets and inserting them on the inside of your window.
The thickness should be about 1/4", especially if you're creating a design for a larger window. Home Depot, Lowes, True Value and other home improvement stores should carry this material and can cut straight, regular sizes. Specialty glass shops can cut circular or oval pieces.
What can I do about the bubbles that appear in my Gallery Glass® project?
Where possible, tapping the back of a freshly painted surface will help pop fine bubbles. Larger bubbles can be removed by combing or stroking back and forth in straight lines through the paint with the tip of the bottle or the combing tool. We recommend leaving the small bubbles in Crystal Clear as they add to the cathedral-glass look.
What is the best way to apply Gallery Glass Window Color to my project?
First outline shape along the leading lines. Then fill in the rest of the area with color. It is very important that your Window Color touches the leading otherwise you will have holes in your design and will not be able to use the modular method. If there are bubbles in the paint color, gently tap the underside of your project until they pop. If you are painting on a curved surface, like an ornament, and cannot tap the bottom, use the combing tool to smooth out the area.
What wattage of light bulb is appropriate to use with a lampshade decorated with Window Color™?
Do not use a bulb brighter than 40 watts. Bulbs above the recommended wattage may cause rapid fading of some colors.
Why does the Gallery Glass® Window Color™ in my bottle seem thin and have lots of bubbles?
Do not shake Window Color™ bottles. It does not need mixing and shaking will thin it too much for vertical application. If a quantity of bubbles is visible in a bottle, tap it firmly on the table a few times to remove them. If a bottles does get shaken up, allow it to rest overnight before using it.
Are FolkArt Enamels really dishwasher-safe?
Yes, you can wash your painted pieces with FolkArt Enamels in the dishwasher without chipping, cracking, or fading after first curing it in the oven by following the directions below:
  1. Allow painted item to dry for 24 hours to be sure all layers of paint have dried.
  2. Place project in a cool oven, as the glass must heat gradually with the oven to avoid breakage; do not place glass in a hot oven.
  3. Set oven temperature to 350ºF.
  4. Once temperature has reached 350ºF, allow the project to bake for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes, turn the oven off and let glass cool down completely before removing from the oven.
  6. Do not use for 72 hours.
In addition, using the Clear Medium over your design will help ensure the longevity of your painting. Learn more on curing painted glass projects.
Are FolkArt® Enamels available in the One Stroke colors?
Yes, FolkArt® Enamels are available in One Stroke colors. You will find them with the same names as regular FolkArt®.
Are items painted with FolkArt® Enamels microwavable?
No.
Can FolkArt Enamels be thinned with water?
No, thinning FolkArt Enamels with water compromises the integrity of the paint formula and will prevent the paint from properly adhering to your glass surface.
