Help needed on glass bezel painting
« on: August 29, 2017, 10:48:01 am »
I picked up a piece of tempered glass to go over my cabinet. I painted the inside of the glass black for the border , but I'm having a hard time keeping the paint from peeling. I am going to redo it and am looking for tips. Should I do something different with the pain, switch to a laminate, etch first, something else?  Thanks for the help!

Maybe limo tint?, or You could Switch to plexi use an automotive plastic type paint. I got the paint from auto zone.  Mine came out nice.

I use Frog Tape to paint straight lines on glass.

Frog tape is what I use too. This time I painted with rustoleum high temp flat black paint and it worked awesome

I have never had the paint peel on glass.
