Sealing permanent marker on glass besides a oven? Answered

Can NOT use a oven as our oven is questionable with it's temperature & I live in a apartment that has very little cross-ventilation. So anything that gives off a smell would be hard. (The place stunk up from spray painted items that I had to stick them to dry in my car. Would top coat nail polish or sealer (wax) work?


Modge Podge makes a dishwasher safe version

I would try that first

That one in the related panel, ---->, titled "Ceramic Tile Art Project for Kids",


uses some kind of mojo called, "Spray can of water base polyurethane", or "clear finish".

That is definitely a non-oven method. I don't know what "clear finish" smells like, but how bad could it be?

this is 1 of the glass items I'm using. Not mugs but Mason jars & wine glass.


I am curious about this method you mention for baking paint, marker, etc, onto regular soda lime glass.


If is something you learned about here, at Instructables, or elsewhere on the web, could you help us out by providing a link to the tutorial you are writing about?

I tried asking the let's make: search about, "seal glass permanent marker", and I did not find much, except for this no-bake method, that you might be interested in. It involves an electric engraver tool, but no baking.


I tried asking Google(r) Images, about "bake permanent marker on..."

It offers to complete that phrase with the word "cup", or "plate", which says to me that statistically that is what people are asking about most.

BTW, the reason I am curious about baking soda lime glass, is that stuff is notorious for breaking if it is heated unevenly, or heated or cooled quickly in time. It sort of makes me wonder if people are actually, successfully, baking it in kitchen ovens, despite its bad reputation (in my mind) regarding thermal stress.

Hair dryer or heat gun, out the window?

Google other ways?
