Make Washable Glass Paint To Create Temporary Promotional Ads On Your Commercial Doors

When you need to promote a great deal, but have a tight marketing budget, it can be hard to know what to do to let consumers know your business is having a great sale. Print ads can be quite expensive and are very temporary. Having large banners made to promote sales takes a lot of time and can also be quite costly. If you want to promote your business on a budget, consider painting the glass on your commercial doors. Use the following guide to learn how to make a washable window paint that you can use again and again.

Supplies Needed

  • Two Cups of All Purpose Flour
  • Half a Cup of Warm Water
  • Half a Cup of Liquid Dish Detergent
  • One Large Bowl
  • Five Small Bowls
  • Paintbrushes
  • A Towel
  • Food Coloring
  • A Spoon

Prepare the Flour

Pour the flour into a sifter over the large bowl. Carefully sift the flour to remove any lumps. If there are lumps in the flour when you add the liquid ingredients, it will ruin the consistency of the paint and make it impossible to paint the windows because there will be clumps of flour on the end of the paintbrushes.

Add the Water and Detergent

Add the water and the detergent to the flour slowly, making sure that you continuously stir the flour. The mixture should be roughly the same consistency as wall paint. You may need to add a little more water to make it the proper consistency.

Divide and Color the Paint

Divide the mixture evenly between the five bowls. Add a few drops of one color of food coloring to each bowl. Mix the mixture and the coloring together until the mixture is dyed the color you have chosen. You can add more or less dye to each paint to make the color more vibrant.

Create Your Design

Next, you need to choose the design you want to create on the window. Take the time to draw out the design with a washable marker so that you have an outline to follow. Use a dark colored paint to outline the drawing you created and then allow the paint to dry for thirty minutes before continuing. Use your colored paints to fill in the spaces to create a vibrant ad on the doors.

You can easily wash off the paint with soap and water when you are ready to promote a new sale. The entire process takes just a few hours to complete and costs only a few dollars to do. It is a great way to promote your business without busting your marketing budget.
