Glass skateboard more for show
The glass skateboard was made by a company called Avenue Trucks, a California-based company that makes skateboard suspension systems. The idea behind the glass skateboard was that the suspension would support the glass and make for a pretty smooth ride. According to the video, it made for a pretty cool appearance, but the board itself couldn’t stand up to the tricks, with predictable results. (Perhaps acrylic next time?)
If you’re looking for predictable results with glass, try working with Glassprimer™ glass paint, instead. Glassprimer™ glass paint was specifically engineered to adhere to glass surfaces – but it does more than just adhere. The paint actually forms a permanent bond at the nanoparticle level with glass, which means it won’t chip, won’t fade and won’t peel, even in high humidity, direct sunlight and other challenging conditions.
Glassprimer™ glass paint is available in virtually any color. We can tint it to match paint from any major paint manufacturer’s paint palette, which means that you can apply Glassprimer™ glass paint to glass and other non-porous surfaces, and use ordinary paint for ordinary surfaces. The colors will match perfectly, and your results will be brilliant!
Glassprimer™ glass paint is highly affordable, too. You can cover surfaces for about $1 per square foot, and because the catalyst and paint are mixed at the time of application, you can store your unused paint until you’re ready for your next project.
Glassprimer™ glass paint cleans easily, too. Using ordinary paint thinners (or water if you’re using the water-based version), you can clean Glassprimer™ from your tools and workspace in a snap! Both version of the paint are certified low-VOC compounds, so you can breathe easy after your paint project is complete!
