i have never used these paints, but just had a thought on making them less streaky.....
if they make a white paint, you could add a tad of that to your base color making it a little more opaque and less likely to streak......

Craft-addict--These paints are labelled non-toxic, so I think they have to be safe.  I'd never heard anything bad about them until someone posted something on another thread, and I looked into it, and tney should be fine.  Anyhow, what you can do if you're worried about it, is make plates that won't be used everyday, and then when you use them on special occasions you can layer leaf lettuce or paper doilies or something on them, to protect the food.  Leaching in general is a bigger problem when you heat foods up in the article, which I wouldnt' recommend with these paints in any case.  The other option is to simply use them on the outsides of things, on surfaces that won't touch food.

Personally, I think they're probably just fine to use, especially if it's not everyday, with the caveat that you may not want to use them for kids plates if they food will touch the paint, since kids are so much more sensitive to toxic substances.

Thanks for the info.  I think I've decided to etch the glass instead.  I have no problem with using your suggestion for myself but I'm making a gift and I'm not sure that the recipient will remember.  I'd hate to poison my friend!

Evaberry--You're Winnie the Pooh collection is SO great!  I love them!  I only wish I had such mastery.  My attempts are futile next to yours (and yours, too, hercuteness)  *Sigh*  (keeps practicing....)

I guess I am not the only one with the brush stroke problem.  I am trying to cover large areas of a plate in solid color and some paints like blue and amethyst just will not flow like the yellow or orange.  Adding medium, glossy or matte just lightens the color.  I am using soft brushes.  Any ideas?  BTW love all your work out there!

Although acrylic enamels (and other acrylics) are non-toxic, none of them are 'food safe' including Pebeo.

- None of the projects should be painted where the paint can come into contact with food.
- Glasses should be painted below the lip to avoid contact with the mouth and most clear glass plates are reverse painted on the back.
- If you are painting dishware that is not transparent and you want to paint something on the front of the piece, either keep the design to the edges to avoid contact with food or use a clear charger plate on top of the painted one.

- You should also never add just ANY medium to a specialty paint unless it is made for that particular paint. By doing so you will ruin the integrity of the paint and it may not perform as it is suppose to. (It may crack, peel, chip, etc.)

- The brushes you use on glass, ceramic, and metal, are different than the ones you would use on porous surfaces such as wood. They have softer bristles to eliminate or minimize brush strokes but they are not as soft as a watercolor brush. 

I for one prefer FolkArt brand enamels over any other. They are thick, cover well, and don't have a strong odor. They are applied in one easy step, can be air-dried or baked to be made permanent, and once cured they are scratch resisitant and dishwasher/microwave safe.

I've used the peobo pens.  I have not had really good luck getting a good base coat.   I do not trust the paint being food safe.   I have had some pieces that have eventually had the paint come off.   So that being said if I want ceramics to be food safe, I paint them at a pottery studio.  Smiley  It looks much better than the peobo pens.
