    depends on the use for the final project; but ModPodge makes a Dishwasher safe ( top rack ) water based sealer --- at least this would allow you to 'rinse' it off if you wanted;

    Hi Dee, what are you painting? If it's something that won't be touched and used only as décor, I think it's fine without a sealant, but Mod Podge is a great way to seal the glass. They also sell clear sealant spray at hardware stores. I just did a project on glass and I used Gorilla Epoxy to seal it and it turned out great.

    It depends on the paint you're using. If you are using a glass paint, you don't need to treat it. If you are using a faux glass paint with glue then you might want to seal it. If you are keeping it outside then it would be a good idea to seal it with an acrylic sealer.
