Hello all - I am probably going to paint the windows at my office this Christmas - I would think I need to use acrylic paint - any pointers? Has anyone done this before?

TIA, guys!

when i was a kid we used tempera paint on the windows and sponge brushes.  the color is nice and vibrant and best of all, cheap.  no need to waste acrylics on your windows.

Yeah, use tempra paints, not acylics (unless you want to be scrapping for hours after the holidays). Our local library lets the kids paint the windows once a month, they use tempra paints and then it just washes of with window cleaner.

Tempra paints works best, instead of water, use water with a few drops of dish soap, paint away, and when dry it washes like magic.

I suggest adding some soap to your tempera paints. It makes cleaning SO much easier.
