Authentic Painted Stained Glass

Although it's an old art form, it still produces stunning results. I use a centuries-old technique to give my glass pieces a vintage look.

To create such pieces, I follow the same procedure as standard stained glass making, but with a few additional steps. After cutting the pieces and before soldering, I paint the cut colored pieces with grisaille. These pieces are then kiln-baked at extremely high temperatures, allowing the applied grisaille to be absorbed into the glass and vitrify as it cools.

I use this technique to create elaborate borders that improve the overall appearance of the final product.

In this fairy piece, I doubled and layered some glass to make the wings appear translucent. On the wings of the birds, you can clearly see the details achieved with the painted grisaille.
