Gallery Glass Paints

Recently I was on an artists' site who was doing faux Cloisione' using Deco-Art glass paints.  I found it interesting but didn't have any Deco-art brand to work with so I pulled out my Gallery Glass of which I have a lot of as I love doing the faux stained glass on old windows.

My first look was to see if I could clean up my brushes with water or if I would have to invest in some additional brushes.....WATER CLEANUP...

I had a steno pad coverlette that I had purchased and painted laying by me so I decided to give the Gallery Glass a try.  The first bottle I pulled out was Copper Sparkle.  I went over the darker part of the rose with it, which worked fine but I didn't really see a lot of change.  Then I decided to slip slap the color around the rose and leaves and actually paint a few leaves with the paint.

You decide. 
What I ended up with was a wash effect which gives the indication of background foliage.....I like it so I will be continuing to experiment with them and also get a couple of colors in the DecoArt to compare.  I really like the Copper Sparkle as you get a no color look....at least you do on the micro type black material cover so one has to take both of these elements into consideration.  (BTW, this little book is my constant companion.  I love that it is small, protected and pretty.)  I have a leather larger cover so I am going to experiment on this next with some different colors and see what the results are.

In touching where I painted it is not stiff and the sparkle part of the Copper Sparkle is there; minimal and pretty.
