Painting on glass

One of my classes did some window painting using regular acrylics. You need
good quality (plenty of color saturation and thick) or the color washes
right out and everything looks streaky. To clean it off we simply gave
everything a soaking with hot soapy water and took it off with a paint
scraper. It worked like a charm. One thing that did become problematic was
that another teacher tried it with metallic markers to create a stained
glass effect. It took a lot of solvent and time to get that off (not to
mention that those markers are a safety hazard due to fumes)
