Painting on glass - Painting on glass is beutiful, once you have mastered it.
When it comes to glass paint, there are many options available to the decorative painter. So it’s a bit overwhelming knowing where to start if you’ve never used them before. And it really doesn’t matter which brand or product(s) you choose, because they all work differently. Try them all and see which work best for you. 1. Acrylic enamel paint or enamel paint that’s usable on glass as well as other shiny or slick surfaces. 2. Acrylic paints that become glass paints when a glass and tile medium is added and finally, 3. Specialized solvent based glass paint.

You can find glass paintings online too. You can search by the term "glass painting". Besides it is easily availble in any art supply store and looks like nail-polish. However some paint with oil paintings on glass.
