Pebeo Vitrea 160 Glass Paints - Instructions
Pebeo recommends that you use a soft, natural fiber brush, such as a squirrel hair brush or a red sable watercolor brush, to
apply Vitrea 160. A soft brush will have the right consistency for the paint, and is less likely to leave brush marks. You can also
stipple, sponge, use crumpled plastic wrap, use bubble wrap, finger paint and any other technique you desire to achieve the look
• Stir the paints to mix them up. If you shake them you create air bubbles in the paint.
• Frosted Medium — Frosted Medium can be used to create an infinite variety of light and shadow effects. Use it alone to
create a frosted or etched effect — or mix it with gloss colors to lighten them and make them appear frosted, all without changing
the colors’ technical characteristics.
• Gloss Medium — Used to lighten Vitrea 160 colors and to add gloss effects without changing the colors’ technical
characteristics, Gloss Medium can be used to create an infinite variety of light and shadow effects. When used on its own, it is
almost invisible after application, ideal for making inclusions.
• Iridescent Medium — When mixed with Vitrea 160 colors, Iridescent Medium produces iridescent colors that glimmer and
change colors when the light hits them.
Clean the glass with rubbing alcohol and a flour sack towel.
If using see through glass simply set your design template beneath the glass.
If using non-see through glass simply place carbon paper on top of your glass and your template on top of that. Trace the
design using an ink pen then remove the carbon and template. Then begin painting by design areas traced on the glass. The
carbon will disappear when you bake the paint.
Clean your brushes with water.
• Allow 10 minutes for color to dry before applying an adjacent color. You can speed this up by using a hair dryer.
Place your oven rack at center height. Set your painted glass onto the oven rack into a cool oven and then turn on to 325
degrees. Once your oven reaches 325 degrees set your timer to 35 minutes. After 35 minutes turn your oven off and allow the
oven to cool. Once the oven is cool then remove your painted glass. It is a good idea to check the accuracy of your oven
temperature, the manufacturer recommends a true 325 heating temperature.
The painted glass is dishwasher and microwave safe. All materials are non-toxic and are safe for food serving use.
