So I saw this post   https://www.colemancollectorsforum.com/post/make-your-own-frostedpainted-globes-9842733 and I decided to try it. Now I don’t know how a frosted globe is supposed to look, but there was barely any like coming out of the frosted part. Just a teeny weeny eency weency bit of light. Basically just tinted the glass orange. Did I do something wrong or are frosted globes really supposed to be this dim?

Factory frosted globes will allow some light to pass, but reduce glare.  I wouldn't mind having one that was 3/4 or more frosted, with a pattern at the bottom.

Factory frosted globes are sandblasted though, or particle blasted

In some cases maybe.  The ones I've seen are basically the same white glaze that they use to put the Made In China markings on the globe.  I found that I could remove this with Lime-A-Way toilet bowl cleaner after accidentally de-frosting a kitchen light fixture that had stubborn bugs stuck inside it.
My squirt of Lime-A-Way completely and precisely removed all the frosting from the glass light fixture overnight... and the bugs too.

Well darn. I was really hoping for a full white light, kinda similar to a white light bulb. Guess I’ll have to see how my new silkies do at burning whiter.

You could try a lighter application of paint.  Maybe with the globe rotating on a spindle, and warmed slightly to promote adhesion and rapid drying.  The thinner the paint the greater the light. 

You can always wash the paint off with acetone and try again.    😄

I have to try this myself, with a flame pattern at the bottom and maybe white with a little tint of red at the bottom.

Good luck friend. Maybe your headstone say that your fingers got crippled from masking a Coleman globe for 10 hours straight.😂  I guess I’ll try again. Atleast I didn’t use a nice globe. This bad boy may be a red letter but it’s had some rough times. It’s seen plenty of broken mantles. How would I have a rotating spindle though? Or warmed slightly? Does 90 degrees outside sound warm enough? 😁

Rotating spindle is easy enough.  With a lamp globe you just use the globe holders on a spindle chucked in a low speed drill.  Straight sided lantern globe you could build a spindle out of anything. I'd probably use a Fosters can with a piece of foam rubber wrapped around it.  Put it inside a hot car in 90 degree heat and it'll get heated plenty.

Spin, spray, repeat.

Frosting a globe is dead easy.  I don't see the advantage, though...

A temporary solution is to put the globe in the freezer for an hour. It is better if you do it in winter.

What we didn’t see is Dean licking the frosting off the globe, on second thought I don’t think I want to see that.😁

Shouldn't that be a tapered globe?

Hold on. Let’s remind @Deanofid that he just used some precious chocolate frosting for a dad joke.

My grand dad never told a joke like that. His jokes were, if you quit it, I won’t beat your little pink bottom.

good one DeanO !!!!

i have a lamp shade here made for the Solar lamp company . it was like a frosted shade but much of the frosting was missing and clear there ...... it took a lot of research and trial and error till i figured out it was some kind of a paint job on the outside of the glass made up of calcium / lime sprayed on nice en even . paint stripper wont touch it . it was lime away that i used to finally remove the rest of frosting so the shade is pretty decent looking now but clear . here is what an original looks like with the calcium lime paint on the outside . im having trouble finding my pic of the clear one . just showing an old way of frosting glass without sandblasting .

here you can see the coating is only on the outside
