IIRC there is a special shade paint for greenhouses that's not toxic for plants and pretty easy to remove if/when desired.
Oil primer will really stick to glass. You can topcoat with acrylic.

I used a spray paint for "frosting glass" on the lower bathroom windows. It looks nice, but it would scrape off if you scratched it. I think one can would go a long way. Just an idea
