Madigan Made…. a list of 40+ different ways to paint glass with paint.
So, this week was ‘unofficially’ Glass Paint Week on Madigan Made. Or is it official since I’ve been saying it so much?!? You be the judge.
After I’ve shown you a week of easy ways to paint glass… I bet you are SO ready to grab some glass and get painting this weekend, right?
Wait, you want a few more ideas to inspire you? Well, boy are you in luck today!
I’m sharing a ton of glass paint ideas with you… based on technique or type of paint. I’m hoping you’ll find a fun project that you want to make soon! After seeing all these projects… my mind was blown with all the things you can do to a piece of glass!
Over 40 Easy Ways to Paint Glass with Glass Paint
Stenciled Glass Paint Ideas
Scared to freehand a paint design? Stencils make it so easy to get a custom look. The stencils made for glass are flexible and cling to curved surfaces. Just be sure to lift them off before the paint dries and wash them between use.

Glass Paint Stain/Wash Ideas
Stains and washes have a thinner viscosity that the other formulas of glass paints. They are fun to use to dip, fill, tint, wash or splatter on glass. A little messy? Maybe… but it’s all in the name of pretty!
