    Default Removable opaque paint for windows...

    We're working on our holiday window display at the store and we are looking for paint to use on windows that is temporary (so something water based) but very opaque. We have used standard craft store grade acrylics in the past, but they are always pretty streaky and not totally opaque. Does anyone have any suggestions or know what high end stores use for shit like that? We need to be able to easily remove it to change the windows but we really want something totally opaque.

    Kinda like these dudes are using.

    isn't all paint on glass removable? i used to paint with oils and i always used a piece of glass for the palette because you could clean it easily with a razor blade.

    As long as you use a brand new razor with do dings or rust this is true. Otherwise you'll scratch the glass. You can also buy really wide razors for removing vinyl stickers.

    You could always just smash out the windows and get new ones when the holiday season is over.

    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    Poster paint works. I think that's what the window painters use, don't they?
