How to do glass painting...

 Glass painting is one such unique painting which is laid down on the back of the glass, and painted from the reverse. Glass painting basically involves painting on tinted (stain) glass. 

To do glass painting You need :-

1. Stained Glass
2. Black tube color (for out line design)
3. Trace paper with design of your choice
4. Glass paint colors
5. Brush (Thin brush #1-2) 

METHOD:-
1.   Select a design
If this is your first attempt at painting on glass, then go for a simple glass painting pattern.
2.   Select the glass size
Start drawing on small pieces of glass . Choose square, round or rectangular piece of glass as per the requirement of the design that you have selected. Make sure that the piece does not have scratches or defects.
 3.   Cut a sheet paper
The sheet could be of a piece of a chart paper or normal paper. Measure the dimensions of the glass on which the painting has to be done and keep the sheet 1 or 2 inches more than the glass, for all the four sides or for the radius in case of a round shape.
4.   Make the design on paper
My best advise for beginners is that you should trace it for example if you wanna  make a Sun flower painting u have to print or get a sketch or design of it. 
5.   Clean the glass
Cleaning the glass is necessary to avoid any dirt, fibers or greasy material on the glass as they can make the outline smudgy on coming in contact with the outlining tube or paint.
6.   Make the outline of the design on the glass
After the surface has been cleaned, put the glass over the design and trace the outline of  your desired  design on the glass. When you are done, leave the outline to dry for 3 hours. Ensure that it is not drying in a place where there is dust
7.   Apply glass paints
 After the black outline has dried completely. apply glass paints of your desired choice on your designed glass and leave it until it is dry.
