To heat set ink on glass, you must use glass that can be set in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Chalk Couture’s published instructions are:
Wait for the ink to dry before putting your project in the oven. Also, wait for the oven to heat before placing your project inside. Heat in a medium oven (300-350° F) for 30 minutes. Leave your project in the oven until it completely cools down.
It is a very easy process but there are some pitfalls to ink on glass:
- Some glass and ceramics have a coating on them that will not allow the ink to adhere even when heat set. This can cause the design to peel, chip or wash away with regular use and washing.
- Powder coated items cannot be heat set in an oven you intend to cook food in again.
- Ink is not food safe so if you are doing a platter you plan to serve food on, you will want to explore your food safe sealing options.
- Ink on glass is recommended for decor items only.
As we all know, decor items are fun to make and I can think of a lot of ways to use ink on glass in my decor. I also like to etch on glass. Chalk Couture transfers can be used with etching cream so the possibilities with ink, etch and glass are wide open to your imagination.
