Getting glass out of stubborn Kitchen Cabinets

My husband and I are trying to paint our kitchen cabinets. We have a few glass doors with trim over the front. The previous owners must have glued the caca out of the trim molding holding the glass in, because we have spent an hour trying to pry it off the glass. We don't want to break the glass. Any tips?

More like they probably have so much paint on the 1/4 rounds, that is why you cannot get them out there.

Your best thing is to go to a Dick Blick or even from the paint store, get the mask that you paint on Glass, metal, plastic, so that you can just peel it off later.

Or just use a Razor blade knife, while the paint is still pliable and scrape it off the glass, if you get some on it.

Most painters though, will just use a damp towel to wipe any over paint off the glass, by using a multi knife inside the towel.

Just take your time and do not rush. Use a good paint brush, keep the brush wet and do not go back over once you lay the paint on. Only pain in one direction.
