Here is a pic of what type bulb I used and the glass paint is from wal-mart .
I used one whole container to cover the bulb ..they are small

This glowed pretty brite for a 60w bulb
this next pic is from 3ft away

6ft away

seems to work well with the glass paint.

I've done this with small florescent exit light bulbs, too. You can buy single bigger containers for glass paint from Michaels. :D

this may be a good idea for those who were looking for purple spot lights last year...
only thing is,
does that paint chip off due to the heat?
i know it's made for glass, but i would think the bulb would get pretty hot!
:).

That's really cool! I'm curious about the brand as well and do you think this would work on any type of lightbulb?

Keep in mind I only did this once for a show, but I'd have no problem doing it again. I may do it for my haunt this year. Maybe half and half on a spot lens.

I think it would work on an incandescent light too, because the same principle is involved.

Truthfully, I just used whatever glass paint Michael's had. Don't remember the brand, and I'm not sure it matters. I do remember I had to apply like three coats of it to get as dark a green as I needed, but that means it started off a light color if it helps you Bayou. :D
