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 use Glass Etching Cream?
Clean surface area with rubbing alcohol, soap and water. Wear protective gloves. Apply a thick layer of etching cream over the design area to be etched. Note that cream in the bottle may change color and darken but is usable. The cream should be applied in a generous, even coat. Let etching cream remain on the surface for 15 minutes. Rinse piece under running water to deactivate and remove the etching cream.
Does Glass Etching Cream work with Adhesive Silkscreens and Adhesive Stencils?
Yes, etching cream works beautifully with both adhesive silkscreens and adhesive stencils. Rub screens to secure design tightly to surface. Taping off areas not intended to be etched is a good idea when using silkscreens or stencils to prevent etching cream from spreading.
