These paints are safe in use.
The transparent paints for glass have dark tones in the reflected light (and on the palette with the scanning). This is connected with the fact that they must work by translumination - in the light passing through them, but not in the reflected light as for the opaque objects.
Unfortunately, it is technically difficult or it is not possible to photograph the palette of transparent paints in the transmitted light, and in this case to transmit their true color relationships.

2. Application - Now the desired colours can be applied with a soft hair paintbrush in glaze or opaque finish. Allow an air-drying time of at least 4 hours, before baking.
3. To bake the paint, put the painted object into a cold oven set for 160°C (320 °F). When this temperature is reached, bake for 30 minutes and allow the item to cool down in the closed oven. Now it can even be washed in the dishwasher !
4. Clean brushes simply with water immediately after use.
