BRUSHES FOR TRADITIONAL PAINTING ON GLASS

Painting on glass can add depth and realism that may not necessarily be attainable by glass and lead lines alone. Glass stainers, enamels and silver stains all can lend details and three dimensionality to your glass that otherwise may look flat, lifeless and two dimensional.

BRUSHES come in four categories:

  • TRACING BRUSHES, used to apply defining lines, bolder strokes and line detail

  • APPLICATORS, to apply paint over large areas, the first step in matting

  • BLENDERS, to create an even matt

  • SCRUBS, used to remove paint to produce highlights and detail.
