Anyone remember how to paint/draw on glass with india ink? Sign In/Join

I am looking for help finding information about drawing on glass (plain glass that is in picture frames) with india ink. My sister did this craft in the late 70's and early 80's. I would really like to make something with this craft; however, I have been unable to find any information on how to prepare the glass. All I remember is the beautiful artwork she created with this technique and that it took time to dry so it didn't smudge.

Any information on this craft would be greatly appreciated.


Beam me up, Scotty!

This page may be of help. Read the painting on glass paragraph in the left hand column.
