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.

Love these paints!
from Topeka, KS
I purchased a set of the 160 paints to decorate wine glasses. I practiced on some old glass jars first. The glossy colors are translucent, with a vibrant color. They mix well together and dry quickly. I have used the 150 paints for porcelain and was very happy with the durability so I expect the same results with the 160 paints. Brush marks are very evident with the 160 paints, however they also create a nice effect when painting leaves and vines. When using theses paints with a dauber or sponge, a bubble effect is created. I purchased the frost medium, and when mixed with a small amount of color, achieved a nice sea glass look. I found that dabbing a folded portion of a paper towel in the paint and then the glass crated a nice, even frosted area with no bubbles.

Beautiful mixable colors
By Decadent Digs Creator
from Sedona AZ
These are wonderful paints. Very easy to mix my own colors and I am excited to make amazing Christmas gifts this year as 15 years ago I painted glass beer mugs with dry flies all over them for my brother and he is still cherishing them!

This is my first time to use Pebeo Vitrea glossy paints on wine glasses and I was so pleased with the results. Made my wine glasses look like stained glass. Really beautiful results!
might work well in small areas...tried most of a window and it came out streaky...maybe i applied it incorrectly, but i tried multiple techniques..
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

For Food and Drink Use
I used this product to paint on glass cups, mason jars and more. It works beautifully. You do have to bake it in the oven to make the paint permanent and food safe. The colors look beautiful and I also really love the frost finish that you can purchase separate from the paint.I have used Americana(?) Glass Enamel to do a similar job however I've had issues with it peeling and I personally don't like the fact that their paint is opaque (however I'm sure it would look great with other projects). Highly recommend Vitrea 160 for food safe products.

Creating FUNctional, Colorful and unique glass art is easy with Pebeo brand glass paints. 16 years I have used their products and even though have tried others, come back to what I started with. Allows for a great variety of designs, colors mix well and wide range of colors & outliners. Would not recommend for beginners, paints are thin and could be frustrating for first time users.
