acrylics on glass?

I know there are paints for doing faux stained glass, but I am wondering if I HAVE to use that kind of paint if I want to decorate a glass bowl or something like that. Can I just use my acrylics? Is there something I should to do protect the paint once I'm done? The bowl would hold potpourri or candles, and not be used for food, so I suppose I could spray a clear coat of acrylic on it. Any other suggestions?

That paint for the faux stained glass is really expensive. What I did is look in the kids section of the craft store. There are "glass" paints that come in sets for sun catchers. They worked really well for me and they were a lot less expensive!

Glass Painting
You can get a glass paint medium (Jo Sonia makes one) that you mix with your acrylics to make them glass paints. There are two bottles of stuff, one that you paint on the glass before you paint, then the one that you mix in. You just put the painted items in the oven for a couple of minutes to cure them.
Hope this helps,
J
