Hi talented celiacs,

Do you have a tempura, acrylic, window paint suggestions to decorate glass that is gluten-free? My pre teen daughter is drawing beautiful Halloween theme pics on loose leaf in the home. I would love to feature her art on the glass  Windows of the home this season-mural like. Do you have a suggestion of paint I buy from Joannes, michaels,target, or walmart that is gluten-free? My son and I don't need any triggering as we are still healing and sensitive.

Is it acrylic? Tempura ?  How does it clean up? She paints inside ?

I have no experience in art and want to buy something to surprise her with the request/offer?

Thanks for your knowledge and assistance.

There is special transparent paint that you can get for glass. You should be able to find it in a good craft or hobby store.  If you use that the window can be enjoyed from both sides. You could also use acrylic paint. That would not be transparent.  I avoid Tempra and poster type paints.

You could also use clear plastic and markers. If you did that they could be used every year and added to as time goes by.

At school I've always used liquitex acrylic. Cleans up with water if you clean it immediately. And yes, paint inside.

make sure to share pictures!

That sounds like what I had in mind the transparent paint. I've never bought it , but I wanted to make sure you others use it since I'm clueless. Thanks

Liquitex acrylic is basically the best, widest used and sold acrylic so you should be able to find it ok.  I've also used the acrylic available in little squeeze bottles from Michaels... Plaid brand I think? Ive never used a transparent paint except one I got for a stained glass like project about 10 years ago, but I didn't care for it compared to a decent acrylic. They probably make better stuff these days though!

When does it matter if its gluten-free? ( likely is)  but she isn't eating it. She isn't 2 and put her fingers and paint brush in her mouth.  Are you or your son going to lick the glass?  Of course not. 

 

Any paint can be be scraped off glass with a razor blade.  Some people use dry erase markers

    • Our doctor ordered the Prometheus Celiac Plus test for us.   It is some sort of in depth celiac blood test.   This test report showed  which celiac gene my daughter has.   I think you can ask your GI for a celiac blood test with EMA.   When I asked for the EMA test, we got this Celiac plus results back.   I believe Prometheus is the name of the lab. Our insurance paid for this test.   If your insurance won't pay for it, I know there is a lab in Colorado that offer this test for a few hundred bucks.   You have to google for it.   I forgot their name.
    • Why?  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But only a few actually develop it.  It is used to exclude celiac disease and not to diagnose it.  There are some outlier genes too that have been discovered recently, so the gene test is not perfect.   My daughter has tested negative on the antibodies test.  She will have to get retested in the future. But we will not get the gene test.  It may impact her ability to get life insurance or maybe even health!  Just something to consider.  
    • It will turn around, but it probably is going to take more time.  Yes, adhering to the gluten-free diet is critical,  but what doctors fail to tell you is that is can take time for antibodies to decrease.  For some it is a few weeks and for others months to years.   It sounds like you are doing everything right.  Remember, her gut is damaged and eating anything can hurt to digest.  You might consider taking her off dairy for a few weeks until you see improvement.  Then add back in starting with products with the least amount of lactose (e.g. yogurt). Many celiacs are temporarily lactose intolerant.  It might help with the nausea.   When I accidentally get exposed to gluten, I stick with soups and stews, even cooked fruit, like applesauce because it hurts to eat!   Are you sure the medication she is taking is gluten free?  Did you call and confirm with the manufacturer?  Did she have nausea befor she was diagnised?  The side effect of this medication is nausea.  Did the GI prescribe?   Hang in there!  
    • My 10 year old daughter has been on the gluten-free diet for 6 weeks, and she's feeling worse than before the diagnosis. She has very little appetite, has frequent nausea in the evening, and has lost a pound or two that she really can't afford to lose. Our whole household is gluten free except for a few prepackaged items kept in a different room, so I think there's very little chance of cross-contact. She has been put on cyproheptadine to increase appetite and is trying valiantly to eat more, but she's just not hungry and it's very stressful for her, and all of us. She's eating peanut butter, pediasure, avocado, cheese, meat, and all the other calorie-dense foods we can think of.  No oats, not too much processed food. Can anyone give us suggestions or hope that this will turn around? 
    • Yes, the beers which I'm referring to had barley listed in the ingredients panel. For example, this was one I was looking at made from malted barley. Here in Europe things are slightly different. As long as the 20ppm test is passed beers can call themselves gluten free, including ones which you would see called gluten removed. So they share the shelves in the Free From section with the naturally gluten free beers you refer to.  To clarify, I'd be relaxed drinking a beer which never had gluten in it, such as the sorghum based beers which share the shelves with the gluten removed ones over here. I'm nervous about those where the gluten has been removed during the brewing process. This is in part due to a strange reaction I had to another gluten removed beer marketed as gluten free  back when I still drank.
