he ended up using paint for glass
see pearl paint - here is a link
but this is to the ceramic
r u in nyc?
if u go in the store it is probably best
i do not see the glass paint on their site

also to my knowledge he used as well the
ceramic paints
but i do not know whether one is better than the other
and he was able to find special colors
i thought it was arabian - but that is off the top of my head
the minerals to make the colors were fr: arabia

general rule is if it will dissolve in water it is
(basically) non-toxic
the thing that was majorly toxic for stan was
cole tar (sp?)

let me know if i can b of further help
