Vitreous Paints

PAINTING MEDIUMS are mixed with the powdered paints to allow the paints to be applied to your glass with a brush. They are the vehicle (and sometimes the binder – to hold the paint on the glass until it is fired) for applying your paint. Several mediums are available depending on your painting technique and your personal preferences. All burn off cleanly upon firing.

GUM ARABIC serves as a binder to help your paint stick to your glass until it is fired when your paint is mixed with water or vinegar. Before the glass is fired you can stipple, matt, scratch and do other removal techniques to the paint which can add details and highlights to your creation. Sold in:

  • 1 oz jar (#R P 1795) $ 8.49
  • Half Pound pack (#R P 1795-HP) $25.50

KLYR-FIRE® (#73740 – 16 oz bottle) from Thompson Enamel is a multi-purpose water-soluble mixing medium which cleans up easily and doesn't emit the fumes associated with other binding agents (such as squeegee oil). Klyr-Fire is frequently used in Pâte de Verre and also as a low tack fusing glue. We've even seen recipes using Klyr-Fire and borax to make your own devitrification spray.  $16.99

   
WATER FRIENDLY MEDIUM FOR USE WITH ENAMELS
This is the perfect binder to use when working with enamels.  For most painting applications, add a couple drops of WFM to the enamels and then add as much water as required to get the consistency you are after.  When fired, WFM will burn off cleanly with no nasty residue.  Since WFM is a water base, you don't need to worry about needing to use solvents when cleaning your brushes.
