Glass painting is a contemporary art which has been derived from the age old art of stained glass painting which involves putting smaller coloured pieces of glass together. It was a common feature in high windows and doors etc in the olden times and can still be seen in churches and old buildings. These days glass painting is becoming a popular feature and catching up as a hobby due to its awesome results and easy availability of glass painting equipment. Many companies launch glass painting ideas for hobbies. They can have different levels like beginners, which is basically for experimental purpose for children. At home (as a hobby), glass paintings can be as wall hangings, wine glasses painting, on windows, acrylic sheets, cups, mugs, tiles, mirrors etc. Glass paintings look most beautiful when illuminated by sunlight. The sun rays going through the transparent coloured glass gives it a glow that no other artificial light can give. It looks simply awesome!(however, too much exposure can sometimes result into fading of colours). Some glass paintings are framed with silver foil to reflect light to create a similar effect. This technique can be used when it is not possible to expose the painting to required amount of light.
