Stainless steel prep table can transform a plain clear glass countertop into an artwork by painting it. You can paint on glass with either water-based or oil-based colors. Choose from a wide range of colors in both types of color, to mix or contrast with your existing room decor. Create a shimmering effect with transparent glass paints or paint a more conventional image with opaque glass colors. Transparent and opaque glass paints have their own distinctive consistency and do not mix well, so choose one or another to paint your glass board.
