I want to paint with Reusche weather resistant paints (e.g. stencil black, strong blue) on white opalescent glass. Probably something from Kokomo or Spectrum. I've heard more than once that glass paint doesn't adhere well to opalescent glass. Anyone have first hand experience with this subject? I can test the results for acid/base resistance, but perhaps that's not the issue?

Hey I got new glass at

I have painted on Spectrum and on Youghiogheny opalescent glass without a problem.
