like all broke college kids out there, i'm trying to save some of my money.  i've decided to save half of every pay check.  i don't trust banks, so i've decided to stash it in this big glass jug i have.  the problem is, it's an ugly jug.  plain glass with some purified water logo painted on it.  i can scratch off the logo without damaging the glass, but then what?  (one friend already suggested that i write "stripper tips" on it in permanent marker, lol)

does mod podge adhere well to slick glass?  what sort of paint will stay on without peeling down the line?  any suggestions for decorating this stupid thing would be greatly appreciated.

I've used mod podge on glass. So far it's held very well.

I've never painted glass but have been thinking about trying it.

If you have an engraver you can engrave it.

I have a cousin who used to work in a boatyard. He used to wrap bottles with cords and ropes, typing funky sailor knots along the way. I always liked that.

You could also etch it without actually etching. There's a chemical (I think it's called etching compound) that you can buy at craft stores. You put stickers or stencils in your glass then fill in the uncovered glass area with the compound, wait about a 1/2 hour, then rinse it off and viola, etched glass.
