What is Back Painted Glass?

Where is Back Painted Glass Used?  

With this versatile material, you can use back-painted glass to transform almost any room. It is often used as backsplashes or bar tops in kitchens, as a designed wall surface in homes and offices, and in bathrooms. Additionally, it can come in almost unlimited colors and designs, making this the perfect material for creating and designing a unique custom room. 

Back-painted glass is used to create marker boards and can be made with custom colors to match your business’s brand or used in personal spaces to fit any room’s color scheme. Additionally, you can use the glass surface to write or share notes, memos, or lists. 

How is it Made? 

Creating back-painted glass is a meticulous process that requires precision and care to ensure the glass is cut and painted perfectly without error. It can be prepared primarily by manufacturers, but artists can help create custom pieces to fit their personal aesthetic better. 

This glass can come in any size and color through a wide range of customization. Firstly, manufacturers create it beginning by using a fresh sheet of glass. Then, cutting to the specifications for the client’s orders. The glass is then cleaned of debris, and the edges are taped off. This prevents debris from attaching to the paint.  

The glass is laid flat on the front side to begin the application of the chosen paint color or design. Then, paint is applied in multiple coats, usually to ensure the glass is not translucent. Once the piece is complete, it is baked in an oven to ensure the paint stays on the surface. 

Glass Care 

Back-painted glass is stylish and easy to care for, making it desirable in many homes. You can clean it with warm soapy water using a gentle cleaner and a soft brush or washcloth. When cleaning, you want to be sure you wring out excess water. Thus, avoiding allowing water to pool near the edges. Water can damage the painted surface when left to pool around the edges.
