Product Questions and Answers

Can I use this on metal silver earrings?

- Asked by Joan on 20-May-13

Liquid Leading is specially formulated for use with the Gallery Glass Window Color paints, not metal.

- Answered by MisterArt on 23-May-13

Is this weather-resistant?

- Asked by colleen lance on 18-Jan-13

Liquid Leading by Plaid does not indicate that it is weather resistant, but since it is water-based I would lean on the side of caution and say no.

- Answered by MisterArt on 24-Jan-13

What to do when Liquid Leading is too thick to use?

- Asked by Jan Heilbrunn on 08-Jan-13

- Asked by mariet on 14-Oct-12

Customer Product Reviews

Rated by: Jeanne in Tucson, AZ
Great product, but I wish they could re-package as the bottle is hard to squeeze.
Rated by: Joan H. in Delaware, Ohio
I use the empty paint bottles for the leading. It is much easier to use and to control and if you want a thicker line, you can cut the tip.. I have been teaching senior citizens how to do this for several years now and it makes a huge difference in allowing folks with arthritis to be able to use the leading easier.

I needed a replacement and honored it and IMMEDIATELY sent it out without any charge. Talk about fast!!
Rated by: Joey E. in Erwin, NC
The liquid leading is easy to use. You should use it while the project is laying down for the best results. We tape a pattern under the glass and outline it with the leading, then after 24 hours use the colors to fill in. Great prices on MisterArt, they are the cheapest place to get this.
Rated by: Karen W. in Medford, MA
Liquid leading is great - it takes a few hours to dry completely, but I have made so many suncatchers to adorn my house. They look great, stick easily and come off within a few years - otherwise, they still come off but you have to scrape the decorations off with a scraper or razor.

Nice product. Works well for window clings. Easy to apply.
Rated by: Kay A. in Salem, OR
I too had trouble squeezing the large bottle of leading until I realized that if you put the bottle in a little warm water and let the leading warm up some it is very easy to put the lines on nice and even.
Rated by: B. R. in Hot Springs, AR
I have crafted many window designs, free hanging as well as directly onto glass windows and this product mimics real leading, making the finished design look exactly like leaded glass.
Rated by: Mika E. in Houston, TX
After reading the reviews for this product, I'd like to offer an easy alternative to squeezing the bottle. I've been working with this leading compoound for many years and the best way to use is to put a big glop of it in the corner of a zip-lock bag and snip the corner tip of the bag to the size of the line you want (fine or bold) or use a cake decorating bag and tips. It makes the product very, very easy to manipulate and your lines come out extra smooth, with no bubbles. Plus, no tired aching hands afterwards. Hope this helps!
Rated by: marsha s. in wautoma, WI
I've purchased this product for several projects. Excellent,Some trouble at first with bubbles and couldn't keep a clean line but after working with it and keeping it stored upside down or on it's side, works great on bottles,windows, and glass lampshades so far
Rated by: diane . in new york, NY
I have to say it is good stuff, but I kind of agree that it's a tad difficult to work with. Although, now that I see the other review I will have to try "letting gravity do the work"... I only just started to use it, so only time will tell... but so far, so good. Thanks,
Rated by: Janie B. in Arlington, TX
Even a beginner can make a glass design that looks like stained glass. Easy and lots of fun.
Rated by: Kathleen H. in Ft. Irwin, CA
Hey there, I read the other review and thought I should add my 2 cents. At first it was hard for me to do a lot of leading with how clumsy the bottle is, but then my husband suggested letting gravity do the work; allow the lead to settle in the tip (holding the bottle upside down). Make sure you tip slowly, so you don't get any air bubbles! Then just squeeze as necessary, when sitting the bottle down, lay it on it's side.
Rated by: Debra F. in Fort Atkinson, WI
This product looks quite nice once applied and dried. However, I am only giving it three stars because the firm plastic bottle it comes in just about kills my hand from squeezing it to get the paint out. It's not so bad when the bottle is new, but use up 1/4 of it (or worse, half!) and you have to really squeeze hard to get the paint out. If they would package this in a flexible tube like a toothpaste tube or artist oil paint tubes where you can roll up the bottom as the product is used up, then I would give this product five stars. Until then, I'm just giving it three stars. If you're going to be doing a lot of "leading" with it, be prepared for a sore hand after a while. :-)
