Hi Mam, You can upload your articles, but give your Chennai Address and ask one of your relative to be the contact person, so in case somebody is interested in buying they can contact your relative and they in turn can let you know.

Glass painting can be done both on plain and textured glass. Technique depends on the design you are using. If the glass pieces are not very bulky you can use Fabric Glue.

You can get various sizes of mosaic glass from any tile shop.

Aanchal it is always better to use acrylic sheets for 3D glass painting instead of actual glass. I don’t know where do you live but you will get it easily. You can use fevicol or araldite.

Hi, 

Decoupage starts with a plain and clean surface, Modge Podge and the pictures which we will like to use. Start with visualising the finished product and place the picture as per the plan. Glue them to the surface using Modge Podge. Ensure there is no air vacuum while sticking the pictures. Once dry apply Modge Podge on the picture to varnish it. This process can be repeated twice but the coat has to dry in between.

You get glass pencil markers in any hardware stores. you may get them in White or yellow colour Our regular CD marker pens can also be used on glass The best way is to TRACE the design on the glass using white, yellow or any other coloured carbon paper as per your requirement.

Do not use any pen on glass ,your pen can get damage also . instead of using pen u can draw one stencil on rough paper and place behind the glass so that the stencil did not move and with the glass liner draw your design
