Welcome to dickblick
Pebeo Vitrea 160 is part of a new generation of thermo-hardening, transparent, non-toxic, water-based paints specifically designed for use on glass. Vitrea 160 can be applied to glassware, vases, lamps, and even an entire window surface. The Vitrea 160 line includes frosted paints for an etched-glass look, and mediums that allow for reproduction of crackled, iridescent and frosted glass effects.
In contrast with Pebeo Porcelaine 150, the Vitrea 160 colors offer more of a blown glass or fused glass look. Colors are runnier than Porcelaine 150, and they mix easily. Whereas Porcelaine 150 colors are solid, even single colors of Vitrea 160 often seem to have many swirling colors inside. Porcelaine 150 and Vitrea 160 heat set at different temperatures and are not intermixable.
Pebeo recommends that you use a soft, natural fiber brush, such as a squirrel hair brush or a red sable watercolor brush, to apply Vitrea 160. A soft brush will have the right consistency for the paint, and is less likely to leave brush marks.
Individual colors are packaged in 45 ml (1.5 oz) bottles. Vitrea 160 mediums and Vitrea 160 outliners are packaged in 20 ml (.68 oz) tubes. Vitrea 160 Paint Markers are also available, in a more limited range of colors.
Note — Due to application, there may be variation in color between Vitrea 160 Paints and 160 Markers.
Frosted Medium can be used to create an infinite variety of light and shadow effects. Use it alone to create a frosted or etched effect — or mix it with gloss colors to lighten them and make them appear frosted, all without changing the colors’ technical characteristics.
Used to lighten Vitrea 160 colors and to add gloss effects without changing the colors’ technical characteristics, Gloss Medium can be used to create an infinite variety of light and shadow effects. When used on its own, it is almost invisible after application, ideal for making inclusions.
When mixed with Vitrea 160 colors, Iridescent Medium produces iridescent colors that glimmer and change colors when the light hits them.
Use this medium to thin Vitrea 160 colors without lessening their durability.

Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
Once dried and baked for 40 minutes at 325°F (163°C), the paints are permanent and dishwasher safe.
Avoid use of strong, abrasive cleaners such as steel scouring pads, and sharp cutting implements such as stainless steel knives, which may leave scratches on the surface and make it more difficult to clean.
To heat set a finished piece, place it in a 325°F (163°C) oven for 40 minutes. Since many vitreous and ceramic materials cannot withstand sudden changes in temperature, we recommend that you place your piece in a room temperature oven and allow it to warm up with the oven. After 40 minutes, turn the oven off and allow it to cool back to room temperature gradually.
Not recommended for use on surfaces that come in contact with food.

I would buy this product again and again
from Melbourne, Fl
Comments about Pebeo Vitrea 160:
I love the Peveo Vítrea 160 glass paints. My bottles look shiny and the paints stay on when I wash the glass. The paints come in many beautiful colors, some are more translucent than others. I use it to paint wine bottles or any other kind of bottles. I recommend baking the bottles after painting them like it says on the label if you want to make the paint more permanent.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Glass never be the same with Pebeo Vitrea
By Silvana Loureiro
from Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil
It has been a great deal since I found out about Pebeo Vitrea. In 2004 was the first time that I bought one of those, and since then it is the only paint that I buy to do my work. I couldn't be more pleased.

Not what I was expecting. Paint is very thick.
from East Tawas MI
Very thick and not transparent except for the yellow. Will try other applications but seems to be just enamel paint to me. Have stained glass in the past and this product was inferior.

Love the vitrea products
from Baton Rouge, LA
Love the vitrea glass paints. better than any other glass paint I've used. I only wish there were more colors. And the color descriptions were more accurate. For instance, I ordered Crimson which I believed would be red but it was a dark purple. not red at all.

Love these paints!!!
from Saratoga, WY
I paint glassware using these paints. I have not tried any other glass paints so I cannot say it is BEST IN ITS CATEGORY although it may well be. If the color I need is not there, I can usually mix to what I want. I paint thick and always let my glasses dry overnight and finish off in my kitchen oven as directed. I hesitate answering when someone asks what paints I use for my glasses because I know they will love using them as much as I do and could become my next competition. It's a great product!

It worked for my project.
from Springfield, VA
The only drawback for me is that it was hard for me to make the line perfectly smooth. But that may have been more a function of my skill than the product itself. Still, for what I used it for, it worked well. I did have to apply 2-3 'coats' of the product to get the thickness I desired. It shrinks a bit as it dries. I was happy with the overall result.
Will purchase again
Great product - worked as advertised

I used this paint to paint on wine glasses. The paint was thinner than I had expected and therefore I couldn't do exactly what I wanted.
