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.
Wash painting surface with warm soapy water. Allow to dry.
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.
Basecoat top Crocus Yellow leaving 1-inch clear band at lip.
Using seawool sponge, pick up small amount of Tangerine, pat on palette to remove excess, then pat on glass starting at top and working down about 2/3 of the way.
Repeat process with seawool sponge using Royal Purple + a touch of Ultra White, working down glass about 1/3 of the way.
Lay tracing paper over pattern. Trace all lines. Lay tracing on surface, and tape in place. Slide graphite paper between tracing and surface, draw over main lines.
Basecoat stem of glass, do branches, moon and bats all in Ultra Black using Liner Brush Size No. 0.
Allow to cure for 10 days.

If you have never worked with PermEnamel™ be patient, it’s a lot of fun to work with.
