Project Instructions

Step: 1

Working With PermEnamel
Do not apply PermEnamel™ products within ¾-inches of any area that may come in contact with food.
Be sure to allow a little extra drying time between coats with PermEnamel™. It may feel dry to touch but has not bonded with glass yet. If you don’t allow the first coat enough time to bond, the color will slip and slide, making a mess.
Because glass is non-porous, it will take more coats for opaque coverage.
PermEnamel™ will air-dry to touch in a few minutes. When air-dried for 10 days, PermEnamel™ is cured and is dishwasher, microwave, and oven (3 up to 350 degrees F.) safe.
Do not use water with PermEnamel™ . Water will break down the properties of the paint. Only use water for cleanup. When floating, use either Thinner or Retarder. My personal favorite is a mix of 3 parts Gloss Glaze to 1 part Thinner.


Step: 2

Preparation
Wash painting surface with warm soapy water. Allow to dry.


Step: 3

Using the 1-inch glaze brush, apply very liberal coat of Surface Conditioner. The PermEnamel™ Surface Conditioner is extremely important for this technique! It creates the bond between the glass and the color. Surface Conditioner will leave a milky look on glass. When the milky look appears, begin painting. A thin coat must be reapplied every 4 hours. You may apply the conditioner right over painted areas.


Step: 4

Transferring Pattern
Lay tracing paper over pattern. Trace all lines except those used to denote shadows. Shadow lines are generally short straight lines. Main lines are where color changes are made. Detail lines are facial features, patterns on fabric, and etc. Lay tracing on surface, tape top and one side. Slide graphite paper between tracing and surface, draw over main lines only.


Step: 5
