Water based glass paint is kind to the environment
Glassprimer™ glass paint is classified as a low-VOC paint, but Glassprimer™ water-based glass paint is an exceptionally low-odor, non-flammable paint designed specifically to bond permanently with glass. Don’t want to clean up with solvents? Our water based glass paint cleans up with water, so you can say goodbye to strong solvents and paint thinners!
Just as with Glassprimer™ glass paint, we can match any color from any paint manufacturer, so you can work Glassprimer™ water based glass paint into any decorating scheme. It’s also fully self-priming, so the surface preparation for our water based paint is the same as for our solvent-based paint – just clean the glass with alcohol until it’s “squeaky clean” and you’re ready to start painting.
How durable is our water based glass paint? It’s just as tough as our solvent based paint. You’ll still get the same permanent bond with glass that Glassprimer™ glass paint is known for. You can handle water based glass paint after about 4 hours, and it cures in 1-3 days, forming that permanent bond we’re known for. Once the paint is cured, you can drill it, cut it or sand it without worrying about damaging the glass paint. And even though it’s water based, humidity can’t touch it! No peeling, no delaminating, no cracking, no bubbling. Just beautiful backpainted glass for a wide range of applications.
You can mount glass painted with Glassprimer™ water based glass paint with neutral cure silicone glue. You can also use double-sided glazier’s tape that’s rated to support the weight of your project.
