What type of paint to use?
It depends on the look you want, Alice. If you want it opaque, you can use chalk paint. For a stained glass look, you can buy glass paint at a craft store. Either way, be sure to clean your bottle well so the paint will adhere well.
I painted 36 glass mason jars with Folk art multipurpose.
This paint is rated for glass needs to be baked on.
Plaid has a whole page on glass paint products I would look there or call their support line. They are very educational and helpful
In my case I painted a white background first then the blue flower on top. It’s have a nice clean background ( rear view) as well as support the flower true color and prevent streaky look. I painted My in waves painting one single color at a time which allowed the paint to dry and cure -this system work very well for me
Additional references that helped me with regular ( non glitter) paint glass painting.
I hope this helps!
