Glossies are water-based acrylic enamels used in many types of decorative painting. They are formulated to adhere to slick, non-porous and non-oily surfaces such as glass, wood, ceramic, plastic, primed metal, tiles, stoneware, china, enamelware, and walls.
Glossies have a thicker consistency than that of other decorative paints. For best results, use a soft natural-fiber brush, such as a red sable watercolour brush, or a soft synthetic-fiber brush, such as a golden taklon detailer. Colours are lightfast.
