Other than glass painting? I want to put my own designs onto glasses...I would like them to be dishwasher safe...is it possible at all? The way you see glasses with flowers etc on them and the design is ever so slightly raised....can I DO that? I hope so....help much appreciated:)

Delphi has decal paper that can be printed with old-style printers, then fused onto the glass - it turns sepia, though. If you want to be 100% sure that it is okay for dishware, fuse another layer of clear glass on top.

And I have just seen coloured pencils that you use to draw on glass, then fuse it. Looks really cool. I think it was in this brochure:

Check out the book by Kevin Petrie - called "Glass and Print".
I think Amazon has it.

Also, you can use waterslide decals that you print in your home printer and heat onto the surface of glass, just like with ceramics. I have sheets of it that I use in my glass pieces, I can't remember the manufacturer name as I went in with another person to buy it in bulk. If I run across it, I will let you know.

etching is permanent because it basically scratched the glass

There is also photosensitive glass, which Olympic Color Rods used to carry, but now I only see equipment for processing it on their site, not any glass itself.
