WOW!!WOW!!WOW!! That is beautiful!!! Can you tell us how you did it?

Thank you.

It was very easy. I painted on the reverse side of the glass. First I taped off the design and painted it black with acrylic paint. I put on a second coat of the black too. Then I used a mixture of air dry glass paint and plain old acrylic craft paint. I didn't worry about brush strokes. I even semi-mixed some colors so they would be "streaky". I put on a thick coat of the colored paint. I let it dry for a day and a half.

And this is the result I got. Very easy. And you don't even have to stay inside the lines when you paint cause the black hides all the "overages".

Thanks for the instructions, Buzzard. I am keeping this for future reference. I may have a project I can use it on coming up later (probably much later) and I want to remember how to do it.

That is a beautiful table. You did a wonderful job on it. I never would have thought to mix the glass paints and acrylics, it looks great!

That is just stunning! And I love that since the top is plain glass you can actually use it/clean it/live with it.

Great job!

My crafty brain is churning - may need to steal your idea :)

Beautiful job buzzard! love the vivid colors, you can also use a acrylic paint extender mixed with acrylic paint gives the paint a glass paint look, love that you came up with your own way, thats what I call crafting!
I have a smoked glass top on a table I would love to do something with, anyone have any ideas for me would love to hear them.
Happy Crafting
