betty. glass window. February 26th , 2018.
Due to World War II many designs had been lost or burnt during the bombing. Most files had been recycled into fire and other things. Artists during the great restoration period had to be taught the old technique of using glass colored within a pot, painted fired and then connected with lead. Using hydrofluoric acid to treat corroded glass and then scraped the glass with a metal tool. If the artist felt that the glass could not be restored new panels would be fitted.
Color, texture and opacity are also aspects of your design to consider. Glass can have colors as clear as Jello, or swirls, or only register a change in brightness, but not what′s beyond the glass. It can be poured into molds so one side looks like pebbles or bubbles. It can have a metallic or crystalline sheen. Shape can also be part of your window panel design- rectangular, arched, polyhedral, trapezoid, parallelogram; whatever the shape of your window, the window panel can be designed to fill it. [You could even have one shaped like a Christmas tree, but your builder would probably have a fit.] Once you have found the design you want, within your budget; make sure (if you have not already done so) you see examples of similar work. Ask for references and check with them on quality and timeliness. While your stained glass window panel is being crafted, (again, if not done before) find an installer that is qualified to work with this type of glass.
Installing them at home would be a really worthy one time investment for the interior decoration of the house. Whenever light passes through the window, the home would be immersed in a range of colors that would just add more life to the area.
