Well here is my review of Fevicryl Glass Paints and Outliner. Actually they are call Glass Colours on the box.

As with all of our glass paint reviews I purchased these myself. They actually came from Ebay although I have seen them on Amazon as well. The comments and statements in both the video and this article are all my own opinion. This is the first time I have ever used these paints and outliner so it may be that some of my techniques weren’t quite right and could do with amending.


Fevicryl Glass Paints and Outliner. A Review.

 

 


What was in the kit.

The kit consisted of a 15ml tube of blasck outline. 10 x 10ml bottles of paint: Tomatoe Red, Pink,Orange, Brown, Black, White, Crystal Green, Ultramarine Blue and Sea Blue.


Fevicryl Outliner.

Like many outliners this came in a tube. I don’t really like tubes but I do use them now and then so I was happy to try it. Some outliners have an issue that they don’t hold their shape, they spread out on the glass giving you a thick line. This outliner held it’s shape too well. Normally when you do two lines, one over the other, then they will blend a bit. This one didn’t. In fact I found out when painting that the “higher” outliner hadn’t even laid on the glass, leaving a gap for the paint to seep through.

The outliner was hard to get out of the tube, I even tried moving it to a piping bag but that wasn’t much better.

Having said that I did manage to get the piece outlined but I didn’t feel it was up to my normal standard. Of course this could have been a “bad” tube. Maybe it had been in the retailers too long or maybe it was just a bad batch. I would need to try another tube or two before I was really sure about it.

The Glass Colours.

Well I really wasn’t that fussed about the outliner but I really loved the paints. They flowed really well, the colours were bright and the coverage was good. I did two suncatchers and there was plenty of paints left to do at least another two.

I did have a couple of issues. The first colour I did was the red, I used the paint by squeezing it from the bottle onto my work and then using my solid brush to tease it up to the line. For this first colour I got no bubbles at all. However, after than a did get quite a few and they were pretty tough! As I went on I learn to keep the bottle upside-down and to keep a steady pressure on it to stop the air from getting sucked in. This seemed to work although at times I did revert to taking the nozzle off the bottle and dipping my brush in. This is obviously down to technique and NOT an issue with the paint.

The other issue I had was with the two blues I got in the kit. I really couldn’t tell them apart! Either they had been labelled wrong or there just isn’t enough difference in the two colours.


Summery.

I you will a have guess I would highly recommend the paints for flat flood fill painting. The give a great smooth finish, different colours can be blended together and they are really bright.  On the other-hand I wouldn’t use the outliner again. It was too hard resulting in a really patchy, rough finish.
