@mmarquette I don't know if you have seen this yet, but I made a series of three videos and posted them on Youtube about how I do my glass painting. There is not a whole lot of information, especially about silkscreening on glass. You can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9V-zOX69NsI I do most of the artwork mechanically, so that may not be pertinent to what you want to do, but you might find some of the information in the latter half of the videos helpful. As to your specific question, it is difficult to paint on glass that has a lot of texture, so glass with just a slight amount tends to work better for me at least. You can reproduce the black line work I see on your piece with glass paint but be aware that patina, which is an acid, will eat the paint off the glass in very short order. I have struggled with this problem to the point that I am considering moving away from foil and into thin lead came to avoid the issue. I have done a lots of trial and error experimenting and taken several glass painting classes, but I am by no means an expert at this, however I would be happy to share with you what I know or answer any other questions you have that I might know something about. You can contact me at my school email address: [email protected] if you'd like. I look forward to seeing your next project that includes glass painting. Again, congratulations on a well-deserved award for a very attractive piece of art.

@ProfPounds1 Thanks so much :). Your winning piece was gorgeous! I recently found an old kiln at a junk store that I am trying to find parts for. I would really love to start painting on glass as I am limited to copper foil detailing for now. Is it only possible to paint on certain types of glass or could I paint and fire on any piece of stained glass?
