    Just search Amazon for "glass paint". They have more kits for painting on glass than I ever imagined.

    wine glasses need something a little different, because they will come in contact with water. In the past, I have used Folk Art Enamels. When you are finished painting, place glasses in cold oven set to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes; but this is still NOT dishwasher safe.
    The mirror, I would mix my acrylics with clear drying school glue and this will give you the flow/adhering you need for the mirror. You might have to play with the ratio; but generally I would say 1-5 (paint to glue). Good luck.

    I've been using Pebeo glass paint for years. Michael's used to sell it, but now I have to buy it online. They make one for glass, and one for ceramic. Once dry you bake the pieces in the oven. Pebeo has a web site.

  • Craft stores sell this paint for glass but then the treated glasses need to be hand washed.
