Color Me Bad Decal Sheet and Glass Paints


If you remember Color Me Bad from the 90's, you won't be able to get this jingle out of your head, my apologies.

We thought we would have some fun with our new product. These decals and paints can be permanently fired on your dichroic glass jewelry.  Never before has a decal been available that you can completely customize with your own colors. We have 9 paints available for you to choose from.  This opens up a whole new level of creativity when you think about color schemes and background colors.  

BE SURE TO LET THE PAINTS DRY FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE FIRING!!! Otherwise the paints will burn off. Fire at 325F for 30-35 minutes to make permanent.

Tanya teaches some unique techniques involving these paints and decals in her workshops across the country.  This is only one project of many, but this one is a hit!

Here are some guidelines for using these fusing decals and glass paints with your glass jewelry.

STEP ONE: Soak and apply decal to finished glass piece, allow to dry for 12 hours and fire to low fire decal schedule.

STEP TWO: Apply glass paints to decal areas with a BBQ wood skewer (found at any local grocery store.)

STEP THREE: Allow paints to dry for 24 hours.

STEP FOUR: Fire piece to 325 degrees F for 30 minutes.

DESIGN TIP: Use diluent to thin paints for a watercolor effect. Mix your own colors and use white to lighten up paints.
