CAN I APPLY MULTIPLE COATS OF MONTANA GLASS PAINT 250ML?
It is possible to apply as many coats of Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml as desired. The more coats applied, the less light can pass through the color. In this way you can manipulate the amount of light passing through your glass and the appearance of the color as it appears out the other side.
ARE MONTANA GLASS PAINT 250ML COLORS LIGHTFAST OR UV RESISTANT?
Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml colors are as light fast and UV resistant as possible for a transparent paint that actively allows light to pass through it. Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml colors contain premium grade European pigments and have UV blockers in their clear coat mixture.

Yes. The Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml range can be used in conjunction with synthetic and acrylic based colors as long as they have been allowed to dry completely and cure for 24 hours.
ARE MONTANA GLASS PAINT 250ML COLORS AS DURABLE AS OTHER MONTANA COLORS?
A part from issues of durability related to pigment load, Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml are durable, scratch proof and hardwearing subject to their adhesion to the glass surface. If the surface was not clean, wet, or had traces of dust oils or fat, then the longevity and durability may be compromised. Apart from proper preparation, it is also possible to coat your finished work with Montana VARNISH to increase durability and resistance to damage in any form.
CAN I USE MONTANA GLASS PAINT 250ML COLORS ON DRINKING GLASSES OR PLATES?
The Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml is not to be consumed by humans or animals. Therefore it is important not apply it to the area of any surfaces that will come in direct contact with the consumption of food or beverages.
CAN I PUT OBJECTS PAINTED WITH MONTANA GLASS PAINT 250ML COLORS IN THE DISHWASHER?
We do not recommend cleaning items painted with Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml in dish washers. The Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml has limited resistance to the extreme heat generated in dish washers and the chemicals used in the cleaning products within them. As such, even with extra Montana VARNISH coating, items painted with Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml and then cleaned in a dish washer will eventually fatigue and deteriorate.
HOW DO I REMOVE MONTANA GLASS PAINT 250ML COLORS IF I NEED TO?
If you need to remove Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml from glass, it is possible to do so by scraping it off, slowly and carefully with a fine flat blade. Be very careful not to scratch the glass underneath or any wood/rubber seals or edges. Alternatively applying Montana ACETONE spray, allowing to soak shortly and then scraping off could be an option. However please note if the ACETONE comes in contact with any seals, it may damage or break them.
CAN I USE MONTANA GLASS PAINT 250ML COLORS ON ACRYLIC OR PLEXI GLASS?
Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml is not made to be applied to acrylic or plexi glass surfaces. We do not recommend doing so. Although the product will most likely apply and color the surface as desired initially, doing so may result in the solvents from the Montana GLASS PAINT 250ml paints agitating, etching into or damaging the acrylic/plexi glass surface.
CAN I USE MONTANA GLASS PAINT 250ML FOR PAINTING LIGHT BULBS?
Old glass bulbs heat up too much which would cause the paint to burn and/or change color. Glass paint should not be heated above 176°F. Theoretically it should work on modern LED lamps as they don´t heat up that much, but they are made of plastic most of the times so Glass paint wouldn't be the best option.
In general we recommnd to refrain from using them on any type of bulb because as far as electricity is involved, there is always a risk of sparks/burning
