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.

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

The type of Glass Paint I've used in the past is by Pébeo and is called Porcelaine 150. It requires baking (you can also air dry) so I can't imagine that the heat of the bulb would be a problem. I purchased it at Michaels. They make the paint in different transparencies, so keep any eye on the labels.
