painting on glass

I apologize if this is redundant with some of the messages below, but I want to be sure before I go out & buy something. I'm wondering what the best paints and/or sealants are to use on glass. Specifically bottles & jars or ordinary ceramic-type plates. I want to be sure whatever I get is waterproof, etc. to withstand normal washing & wear. Would these be the same paints recommended below for painting on mirrors, etc.?

I would suggest one of these acrylic enamels.

DELTA PERMENAMELS - Air-Dry, can be used on glass, tile, and ceramic, requires no heat setting and is non-toxic, oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. Uses 3 steps - surface conditioner, paint, and a glaze finish.

DECOART'S ULTRA GLOSS ACRYLIC ENAMEL - weather resistant, non-toxic, and no baking is necessary for a hard durable finish. Uses one application - no surface conditioner or topcoat.

PLAID'S APPLE BARREL INDOOR/OUTDOOR GLOSS ENAMEL - non toxic, weather resistant, suggested it be baked on tile, glass and ceramic for more durability and wear.

*Even though all of these paints are non-toxic it is suggested that the paint never be used on a surface that will come in contact with food. So if painting glass plates for use, you might want to paint your design on the bottom side.

About the kind of paint to use on mirror? I am interested to know about it....for I am thinking to fix the bottom of the bathroom 9 years old mirror that became grey and I thought may be I could paint some designs to hide it...

RE: painting on glass

I use apple barrel paints to paint on wine glasses and vases .It works well and is easy to use.
