kind of on the back side here but i have installed two glass backsplashes last week, one in a showroom and one in a condo. they both went in with sandblasted glass relying on the paint behind to provide the color. one has i believe lcd light tubes above to change the color of the entire panel.
-went with low iron sandblasted in the lighted unit. low iron for light transmission through the panel and sandblast for the rough finish (on the back side) to catch the light, smooth side out for easy maintenance.
-went with clear sandblast on the other install to avoid the high price for the screened or professionally painted product.
both look great!
I just found this http://www.glassprimer.com/painting-glass-on-hgtv.php glassprimer glass paint is on hgtv, I contacted them because I wanted to watch it but they said it will be showing on hgtv early july 2010 and they will be on hgtv for 2-4 years. We just finished my daughters bathroom shower walls with glass we painted, looks incredible! The glass was kind of big so we had it delivered and put in our garage on cardboard where we rolled on the paint. It was heavy so we called a handyman in our area to put it in for $75.00. It seems handymen are everywhere in the FL keys!
