Tracing on Opalescent Glass

Opalescent and dense glass presents problems as the usual method of tracing the image through the glass is not possible. If you first spray the glass with a cheap hair spray, this gives a “toothed” surface to the glass. Then using carbon paper an image can be transferred. However, the carbon paper leaves a greasy residue, so water based paint will not take, but an oil medium will.
