Whether you’re planning a glass paint project or a small one, it’s important to know how much surface area a gallon of paint will cover. A single gallon of Glassprimer™ glass paint can effectively coat about 265 square feet of surface. When you take into account the catalyst, your final cost is about $1.00 per square foot.
Glass paint coverage
Although it can be, glass paint isn’t usually used like ordinary wall paint. If you plan to coat a backsplash, for example, and your backsplash is 3 x 10, that’s 30 square feet. Depending upon your application, you may want to use multiple coats of paint to ensure complete coverage. We recommend that users not exceed 8 coats of paint on a single surface.
Glass paint comes in a number of finishes, including opaque, translucent and transparent. Many people prefer an opaque coating for backsplashes and cabinet fronts, but a translucent finish will allow light to shine through the glass. Depending upon your installation plans, a translucent finish may work better for your intended application.
Glassprimer™ glass paint can be tinted to match any color. This is an exceptional advantage when you’re planning a glass paint project for your home. You can match any existing color or create the perfect contrast for your project.
You can also store glass paint like any other paint. Since the catalyst is sold in a separate container, you need only to mix the exact amount of paint and catalyst you need to complete your project, and you can safely store the unused paint for later use.
Glassprimer™ glass paint is fully compliant with all EPA regulations regarding volatile organic compounds, is self-priming and when used with the Glassprimer™ catalyst, dries and cures completely in 24-48 hours. Once Glassprimer™ glass paint has cured, the bond to glass is permanent. Your paint will not be damaged by humidity, and will not chip or fade.
