Hi all! I've been screen printing designs on glass soap dispensers for a couple of years now, using Martha Stewart's opaque black oven-bake glass paint. Alas, the Martha Stewart paint has been discontinued, and I'm having a hard time finding a suitable substitute.

I've tried about 5 or 6 other types of glass enamel - a few of them are okay, but not as good as Martha's! The biggest problem I run into is the opacity... it's just not as thick or doesn't have enough pigment in it to create a nice, rich black design. Today I tried Loew & Cornell Transform Mason black, which is nice, but has a flat rather than a glossy finish. I like the glossy finish.

Has anyone had good luck with a particular brand of glass enamel?

Can you list the ones you've tried? Then we can go by elimination on other brands. Smiley
