How to Trace a Pattern for Glass Painting

Once you have the glass clean and ready to paint on, it is time to do one last thing to the design. You need to trace the design that you have already put on paper. This thickens the lines and prepares it for the glass paint liner that is often spread onto the glass using the nozzle on the paint container.



  • 1
    Lay the design out flat on your work area.

  • 2
    Use a thick permanent marker to trace the outline of the glass painting design. This thickens the lines so that they more closely match the width of your glass paint liner.

  • 3
    Affix the design inside the glass using tape.

  • 4
    Use the black glass painting liner and carefully trace, on the glass, the thicker lines that you just traced directly over on the design.

  • 5
    Let the liner paint dry before adding any color.
