I am looking for the best supplies for painting on glass, CDs / DVDs, rocks and other mediums. I am new to all of this.

For reference, here are a few YouTube videos of what I am interested in doing. In the description section of these YouTube videos, materials are listed. However they appear to be only available in India. I am looking for the American equivalent of these materials.

Here are the YouTube links:




Below is a list of materials I believe that I need (what do you recommend as the best for these materials that I can purchase in the United States?) Are there any other materials that are not listed below that I need? I have already looked in Joann Fabrics and Michaels. There wasn't much help there. Also, only individual paint colors are available in these stores. I'd prefer to get a multi-color pack. I am willing to buy from a reputable online company.

Glass paints - multi colors
Glass liners (for painting the shapes / edges to be filled in) - multi colors
Modge Podge - or something else to cover the paint once it is dry to protect it and / or make it more glossy
Paint brushes for glass paints, watercolors, for painting on rocks (what type of paint is best for painting on rocks?)

Thank you in advance for any suggestions or help that you can provide.

I used and liked Martha Stewart glass paints for glasses and dishes.  You can either bake them in the oven or let them sit for three weeks, and they set to washability.  Don't let them touch areas that will hold food or where your lips will touch.

Actually, a mix of acrylic craft paint and white glue will stick to glass, metal, plastic, practically anything, but may not be washable.  (I've never tried washing it.)

Regular acrylics can be used on rocks. 

Water-base Polyurethane makes a durable clear top coat, is available in outdoor, indoor, gloss and matte versions.

Mod Podge always stayed a little sticky for me until I moved to the desert.  If you live in a humid place, it might be a problem.

Let's go out swinging!

Thank you for this answer. Good recommendations and advice that I will definitely be looking into.

I'd never heard of Martha Stewart's glass paints and that's good to know about the Water-base Polyurethane. Also regular acrylics for rocks and the information about the acrylic craft paint and white glue and the mod podge.
