    When placing painted mason jars in cool oven to cure do I put them directly on a rack or a cookie sheet?

      We’ve always placed our glass items directly on the oven rack, but if you are afraid of transfer either from the rack to the glass or the paint to the rack, then you could certainly place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet and pop that right into the oven. 🙂

    how do you prepare hand painted glass for outdoor decor?

    • Chris says:

      For outdoor decor, we suggesting using all purpose acrylic paint and using the air dry method to cure the paint. As far as preparing the glass surface, just make sure you wipe it down well before painting on it. Let it air dry for 3 weeks (21 days) and then your hand painted item should be good to endure the elements of the outdoors.
