In my last post, we looked at the bold colors that are making a great splash for spring. But what if you’re not ready to go for broke when it comes to painted glass? What other color options are available?
Painted glass – go big or small!
Your color choices make a statement, and if you’re trying to keep your cool, bold colors simply won’t do. In that case, consider a cool neutral color like gray. You can also use a more neutral shade of green (think “moss”) or an earthy neutral like a beige or taupe.
The great part about working with painted glass is that you can incorporate virtually any color you like into your paint palette. You can tint Glassprimer™ glass paint to match any color from any paint manufacturer. This means you can use ordinary house paint in the areas where ordinary house paint works best, and perfectly matched Glassprimer™ glass paint in the areas where only glass paint will do. Seamless color for each surface in the room!
You can laminate a single wall, for example, with painted glass panels. This is a great technique for covering up surface imperfections, or just adding a bit of character to a space.
“Industrial” is all the rage today, but there are some surfaces that don’t always look good, no matter what color you use. Poured cement may have imperfections. The sealer may not be evenly applied. Previous use may have left an indelible (and undesirable) mark on the walls. (Think rebar stains, pits, or paint that just won’t come off.) Laminated painted glass panels on the surface can not only immediately cure the visual problem, but they can also add a touch of class to the space.
