ory. Tons of time, effort as well as precise etching are put into every stained glass window. However, most of us think of windows as something we can take for granted. It is difficult to imagine the beauty of stained glass windows without ordering a basic style and calling in a service. To understand what exactly goes into making the stunning works of artwork, the video below takes us through the entire process of making stained glass.
First, a rough sketch is drawn. It’s then turned into stark black outlines, that is known as cartoon. After the cartoon’s final version has been made the piece is now ready for stained glass. Each of the pieces of the mosaic is taken out of the mosaic and pasted onto a piece of glass. To make the characters pop out in the cartoon, each glass is selected according to the color and its texture. When the pieces are broken and ground down to the right size and then painted with an amalgamation of pigments and oxides. They are then matted, shaded before being joined with lead strips. Then, they are soldered and displayed.
