I did the glue with paint color mixture and it is starting to peel back. And it isn't even to warm yet in the south! I really love this piece and want to preserve it! Help me!!!

    Hello there,

    Only a suggestion as I have never had this problem.

    Maybe try to turn the glass over and paint it again, only this time in something like Glass Paint? Best wishes.

    If it's already peeling, I'm not sure how to fix it, but you can carefully peel it off, place It on the other side and use it as a guide to redo the art. You have to clean glass with alcohol first before adding anything. Then you can paint directly onto the glass with craft paint (which can later be baked on), or glass paint (found at most craft stores). After, you can add Mod Podge to seal it. It's a beautiful table though... you did a great job.

      I agree with Holly, but no need to peel it off. Re do the artwork on the top of the glass as it sits now. Use Stained Glass paint from your local craft store. Then peel off the damaged side. Once the glass paint has cured you will be able to turn the glass over. It will last forever.

    Maybe try coating it with polyureathane. Good luck

    Looks like it's getting bad there. If you try to patch repair it will probably really stand out. It's a cool looking design. How about taking a pic of it, scraping all off & putting a fresh design back on? A lot of work, but would be the best solution IMO.

    It would be helpful to know - what kind of paint did you use?

    I love this. So sorry for the trouble your having with it tho. But I’m thinking if you came up with this cool table to start with, your artistic enough to figure something out. I think all the suggestions you received so far are all good. Sorry I can’t help.

    you should cover the paint in something like Modge Podge or expoxy. Make sure it's something that can withstand heat. It will say on the side of the bottle if it's heat safe. I know expoxy is.

      I will definitely do that once I get it fixed! Thank you for the suggestion.

    Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I used the E3900 glue to put the glass top on, can I get the glass top off after using that?
