I couldn't find the "frosted Glass" paint. So I bought a can of Krylon Clear Matte Finish 1311 ("Permanent, protective matte finish.... Eliminates glossy sheen.... Non-yellowing.... Moisture resistant.... Dries in minutes") said it could be used on glass. Two coats makes a lovely frosted glass look. Can't see in/can't see out. Lets a nice diffused light in. 1 can (under $4 at Super Wally World) did 4 skoolie windows. I gotta go buy two more cans! This stuff dries in about 2 minutes. Gotta check tonight to see if you can see in with lights on inside. I don't think you will be able to but gotta check anyway. My win ders are so purty! I did do a test on an extra sheet of glass. 2 coats, 3 coats & 4 coats. Not much difference between 2 & 4 coats so I went with 2 coats.
What I did....
> Wet glass down with white vinegar
> Scraped wet glass with a razor blade to clean any gunk off
> Cleaned window with white vinegar & paper towel
> Dried window well with a paper towel
> Taped off window making sure to protect vinyl gasket from paint
> Sprayed on 1 coat clear paint, let dry 2 minutes before recoating
I got a few runs (corners) in the first coat but you can't see them very well. Interesting. Also much cheaper than buying expensive rice paper window film.
Note: even if the glass is wet from inside (on the paint) you still cannot see in/out. Still looks the same.
