Although it’s a painstaking process, the level of detail, shading, and painting that goes into each piece is what makes the artistry so unique.
• Initial design approval by client
• Create an enlarged charcoal drawing so patterns can be duplicated, cut, and reassembled
• Paint the individual pieces of stained glass with special vitreous paint which is then fired to permanence
• Paint on a coating of matte paint
• Brush/scratch the paint away to allow the light to come through, creating shadows
• Fire the glass again
When duplicating pieces of glass in older windows, we exactly match the original, brushstroke by brushstroke.
