I tried this 3 times till I got it right and here’s how I did it:
I accidentally bought Pebeo Porcelaine-150 in Turquoise instead of the Pebeo Vitrea-160. This is actually meant for painting porcelain, however it does say you can use for glass as well.
I made sure to follow all directions on the bottle; cleaning them first, then painting.
The directions suggest to use the thinner, I decided not to. Also, the directions say not to worry about the bubbles or brush strokes since once you bake the glass jars these will disappear.
Here’s Round-1 results after baking:
You can clearly still see all the brush strokes! I was not a happy camper!
I went back to the store and made sure to buy Pebeo Vitrea-160 along with the Thinner.I applied the same way I did on Round-1, not worrying about the bubbles & brush strokes. But my results were the same as the 1st round. I was pretty annoyed so I didn’t even bother to take any pictures.
I realized that when painting the jars that the brush strokes & bubbles really did play in effect. So I changed brushes.Here is after painting the jars, I tried to get all the brush strokes & bubbles out.
Here’s Round-3 results after baking:So much better! Now that I know what I was doing wrong I’m planning on making several more. But, next time I’ll experiment with the thinner to make the jars even more transparent.
