Has anyone used window tint instead of painting the back of tank?

I don't know if window tint can be applied without using chemicals. That would be my deciding factor. I have seen some folks use frosted glass paint on their back side, and it looks good. If you can get window cheap and apply it without danger to your fish, then I don't see why not...

I assume you are applying it on the outside of the back?
I like that idea.
