I'm a teen services associate at a public library and my supervisor just showed me this: http://flickr.com/photos/davidking/247964637/

He wants to do something like this in our library.  Now, I am a knitter and not so good on the drawing and painting so I have a few questions for you glass crafters.

1. What sort of paint would work best on glass like this?  It will probably be up awhile so anything that's not going to crack and fade very much over time would be plus.

2. How would you make this display better?

3. I don't want to copy them exactly.  Is there anything cooler than polka dots?

Thanks so much!

If you check a local craft store, or even Walmart there are crayon like markers for writing on glass. As for what can be done, it is only limited to your imigination. Smiley

I've seen window markers in dollar stores.  They are specifically for writing on car windows and they are much fatter than normal markers.

I used to use the white shoe polish with a sponge tip for writing on car windows so maybe you could dye it and use it on your window?
