After you etch glass, you can then paint it. I got an email from another member that was wanting to color an etched initial on a wine glass for a anniversary. This is a cool gift idea too by the way. Its simple, classy, and thoughtful. Adding a bit of color to the glass will spice it up nicely.
If you are looking to paint a etched glass area with color, my first advice is to paint it on right after you etch the glass and leave the stencil in place. This way you don’t have to take as much time trying to keep the paint from getting on the non-etched areas of the glass.
In order to paint the glass, there is a large selection of types and brands to chose from. You can go to a hobby store and skim through the different types available. For a nice permanent finish, you can use paint specifically made for glass. I also hear of people adding a touch of regular Krylon spray paint. The key though is to only spray a small amount on the areas.
A layer too thick would be more vulnerable to fall off. Once the etched area is painted, then you should probably wait till it is fairly tacky. While pulling the stencil off, try to pull it away from the etched area as best you can so the paint doesn’t come off with the stencil.
