STAINED GLASS WINDOWS AND AND STAINED GLASS PANELS BY ART WITH GLASS. ESTABLISHED 18 YEARS
is a mosaic of coloured and clear glass using the techniques listed below
also referred to as: lead lights, lead designs, leaded panel. This is a construction method quite like a jigsaw puzzle. Glass is cut to individual shapes which fit together to form a pattern, picture or design. Lead cames (lead strips produced for this purpose) are then used to join the pieces of glass to form a panel. Where the lead meets, solder is applied.
The panel is then weather proofed and strengthened with lead light cement and polish.
Acid Etching Paste
is a paste which when applied to clear or coloured glass produces a soft frosted appearance.
High pressured sand is fired onto and cuts into the glass. The effect is a frosted texture.
Painting and Firing.
A picture is painted onto and then fired into the glass. The art work is then permanent.
A decorative panel can be made using all the above techniques.
