NOTES!
Options for painting on glass assignment:
1. acrylic paint or tempera paint with glycerin or baby oil
2. water color paint with no glycerin or oil (only use a little water for thicker water color paint)
3. glass pane from picture frame (must be glass)
4. drinking glass or glass baking pan/dish

Remember to get PERMISSION if you are not using your own materials! And make sure to keep neat while working… don’t get paint all over the place or yourself! Always have paper towels or something to clean up with while working with paint.
