How do I remove Gallery Glass® Window Color™ from fabrics or other surfaces?
Paint spilled on clothing may be removed with soap and water. Paint on woodwork can be removed with a damp rag. Do not allow spilled paint to dry.
Are Gallery Glass products okay for kids to use?
Gallery Glass Window Color is a non-toxic, water-based product line perfect for children’s art projects such as preformed sun catchers, or magnet photo frames with adult supervision. The AP Seal on all Gallery Glass products indicates they are non-toxic and safe.
Can Gallery Glass® Window Color™ be used outdoors?
Gallery Glass ® is NOT RECOMMENDED for:
  • Outdoor use
  • Surfaces in environments that are not temperature controlled (storm doors, automobiles, motor homes)
  • Surfaces that are in frequent contact with water or heavy condensation, such as shower doors.
Don't apply Window Color to surfaces when temperatures are lower than 45 degrees Fahrenheit or above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Extremes in temperature during application and curing process can cause cracking and distortion. May fade in sunlight.
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.
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.
How do you create a "blended" look with two colors of Gallery Glass® Window Color™?
On our patterns, there are dotted lines and arrows in some sections. Fill in each side of the dotted line with the desired color. While wet, comb the paint in the direction of the arrows.
Do I need to clean my surface or window before applying Gallery Glass® Window Color™?
Yes. Prior to beginning your project, clean surface with window cleaner and dry thoroughly.
How do you use crystal beads with Gallery Glass®?
Delicate clear glass beads add glittering texture to Window Color™ while letting the brilliant color shine through.
After you have painted your artwork in the desired Window Colors and it is thoroughly dry, paint an even coat of Crystal Clear over the areas where you want to apply beads.
Sprinkle even, single layer of beads over wet Crystal Clear. Let dry.
When dry, the original Window Color shines through.
How do I get the Gallery Glass® pattern onto my installed window for the direct application technique?
  • If you have access to the outside of the window, tape the pattern to the back. Trace the lines of the pattern onto the inside of the window with a china marker or sharp crayon.
  • If access to your window is not convenient, transfer the pattern onto the glass with transfer paper by taping the darkest side of the transfer paper against the inside of the glass and place your pattern face up on top of it. Trace the lines of the pattern firmly with a pencil.
Are there any tips for applying Gallery Glass® Window Color™ to my window?
  • Start at the top left corner of the window and apply color to one section at a time.
  • Run a thin line of paint across the top of the section, wiggling the tip back and forth as you move to the right.
  • Be sure to cover the corners and apply paint thickly enough to prevent light from showing through.
  • For a more textured or cathedral glass look, use a figure 8 motion.
