These decorations can be used in various ways – either tie them onto your
Christmas trees or use as interesting serviette holders or candle decorations.
Dala Glass Glaze is a water-based paint available in 15 colours. It produces
a beautiful, high-gloss, durable glass-like finish with no brush marks, which
makes it particularly popular with glass and paper maché artists. It is also
used as a decorative ceramic colour. It is adhesion promoting and will adhere
to most surfaces – even the more difficult ones such as tin and wax.

Dala Glass Liners
A piece of acetate
- Place the acetate over the design and use the Dala Glass Liner to trace the
design onto the acetate. Leave to dry for 2 – 3 hours.
Tip: For an effective, evenly-lined design, ensure that the liner bottle is held
at a 45° angle, so that the hole of the nozzle is always visible, thereby creating
a raised and not a flat line.
- Starting against the liner and working towards the center of the design, colour
the desired areas with Glass Glaze. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
Tip: The Glass Glaze bottle should never be shaken – this will only aerate the paint.
Only stir the paint gently when necessary. To ensure a perfectly smooth finish, the
Glass Glaze must be used on an absolutely level surface. Dala Glass Glaze Clear can be
used to achieve even more see-through shades – just mix with the colour until the
desired shade is achieved.
- Using the scissors, cut out the design.
- Use the epoxy glue to stick the Glass Glaze designs to the end of a pipe cleaner.
Allow to dry.
