TIPS:  1. Use spray paint.   2. Clean the glass REALLY well.   Paint will not adhere very well to dirt or grease. I use isopropyl alcohol to clean any glass or porcelain surfaces that I'm trying to paint.   3. Lightly sand.  4. Use multiple, light coats.   5. rub chalk over the whole surface prior to the first use. (this will prevent any 'burned in' images)
