Transparent or translucent, glass is one of the most widespread manufactured materials.
For hundreds of years, glass decoration has been a much-appreciated practice among artists of all backgrounds. Shop windows and museum displays are increasingly decorated and set off to perfection by professional and amateur artists.
Glass decoration can now be found in the home, not just on windows but also on everyday items such as jugs, glasses, mirrors… (objects which, once decorated, can no longer be used in contact with food).
POSCA is an excellent tool for all these projects: on glass, its colours gain new depth and luminosity, and it can be washed off with water whenever you want to start again.
Clean the surface with a cloth and ensure it is not damp or greasy before starting work.
Creations consisting only of lines will produce the best effect. In areas that need to be filled with colour, several coats will be needed for a uniform result, leaving a few minutes of drying time between coats.
If you want to correct mistakes, just wipe the area to be erased with a damp cloth.
You can make your creation permanent, though not for food use, by applying two coats of water-based spray varnish. Hold the can about 30 cm from the surface and spray in slow circular movements.
The varnish can be matte or gloss depending on the look you want.
