About Talens Art Creation Glass & Porcelain Transparent
A transparent paint for use on glass, porcelain and ceramics. The transparent character of the paint is particularly visible on glass, but the combination of transparent and opaque can also create some attractive effects on porcelain or ceramics. With the transparent paint, you can, for example, create sponge effects. Make sure the surface is clean, dry and grease-free. Apply the paint using a sponge or flat brush, or use sticks to create dots. Clean with warm water. Let the paint dry for 30 minutes and then fix the work in a kitchen oven. Put the painted object in the cold oven. Heat the oven to 160 °C. Bake the object for 45 min. once the oven is heated. Washable by hand after baking. For decoration purposes only.
