For many years, glass artists used Paradise Paints for this purpose. The company has closed, but I checked their website http://www.paradise-co.com/paints/pricing.html#health They are referring artists to Sunshine Colors: CONTACT LINDA AT FERRO FOR SUNSHINE COLORS: 1-800-245-4951 ext.5603 I called Linda and she gave me another number: Lori Groose (Deco? paints) 1-216-750-7425. Linda says if she cannot help you, she will forward you to someone who will. The web address has changed for Ferro: http://www.ferro.com/Our+Products/ColorGlassPM/ This one may be worth investigating. The Warm Glass website lists a variety of sources for glass paints -- most will not survive the heat of molten glass (Pebeo, for example). You may wish to investigate the sites listed: http://www.warmglass.com/Resources.htm#Enamels [[I listed these to help you eliminate brands from your search - sorry if this is familiar to you]] Kaiser makes enamels for fusing glass - apparently they do not withstand higher temperatures: http://kaiserglass.com/page32.html I believe Glassline paints are for fusing as well - you can check with the suppliers to be sure - here are two; search the internet for additional references: http://www.glass-fusing-made-easy.com/glassline.html http://www.sundanceartglass.com/servlet/the-Glass-Paints/Ca tegories Reusche Paints are for stained glass - they fire at a much lower temperature. A Warm Glass FAQ page explains enamels and glass paints -- they're not what you want! Try contacting one of the message boards to find glass paints for furnace glassblowing: http://handmade-glass.com/start.html Brad Shute http://mikegigi.com/fr-srch.htm Mike Firth http://www.glassblower.info/ http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/channels.php?s=&channel_id= 40 You may wish to contact the Glass Art Society as well: http://www.glassart.org/ Glass Art Society 6512 23rd Ave NW, Suite 329 Seattle Washington 98117 USA Phone: (206) 382-1305 This society could provide some clues about glass paints: Society of Glass and Ceramic Decorators http://www.sgcd.org/website-disclaimer.htm You have to register to use the website.
