Hi, I need some help here.
I am making a drinking glass for a friend. We are having issues using a stencil from Cricut, we applied the stencil on the glass. Before we did that, we cleaned the glass with rubbing alcohol, and when we used the Folkart enamel paint, we applied the paint twice to make sure there are no streaks, when it dries, the paint peels right off with the stencil!!  HELP! Any suggestions? We don't want to use etch stuff because it is going to be a candle, need to be black paint. I tried using glass painter's marker, and sharpie paint marker, it washes right off! We want it last longer! Huh Huh Huh Huh


I am up for private swap for Teesha Moore patches!! PM me if  you are interested! :-D

From what I remember when I was researching glass paints, most have a minimum 3 day drying time (some even longer!) before you should try to wash them, etc. You can also bake them at a low oven temperature for a while to speed this up - I did both for the mugs I painted (with marabu paints) and they've held up really well.

I haven't used the FolkArt paints in particular, but in general if you're painting with a stencil, you probably want to peel the stencil off carefully while the paint is still wet. That will keep the dried paint from sticking to the stencil and give you the chance to clean up any possible leaks under the stencil, too Smiley
