Can Gallery Glass® Window Color™ be used outdoors?
Gallery Glass ® is NOT RECOMMENDED for:

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.
How can I create a textured effect with Gallery Glass®?
There are all kinds of products you can add to your Gallery Glass to give it a textured effect.
  • Achieve authentic crackled glass effects with Crackle Medium™.
  • Add the unique look of real etched glass to any project with Window Etch™ and create unique patterns.
  • Create a twinkling textured effect with crystal beads.
  • Create textured glass looks with Crystal Clear window color.
Can I use the Gallery Glass Protective Sealer with Window Etch?

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.
