I was just watching these guys in this interior thread with some real good ideas.

There is a waterbased product you spray on to stop the glass from sticking. Find a local 'glass supply, and they will have it.

They will also have the ribbed roller you need to roll out bubbles... the glass mat,... resin & hardener... acetone for cleanup, etc..
