Techniques:

  • Leaded glass
    This technique requires a deep understanding of each of the phases involved in the process of creating stained glass. It begins with the preparation of the sketch in which basically establishes the colors that will be involved in the work and the broad outlines of it. Once the final design is done on paper template includes precise cuts glass, stained glass assembly begins to take place on a wooden board which must be fixed-size replica of the design and will serve guide. Fragments of glass, are embedded in pods H. shaped lead Finally, lead fragments are welded together with tin. The process is completed with a caulking stained glass to firm and ends with a final cleaning with sawdust and chalk.
  • Tiffany Technique
    This technique is almost thirteen centuries after the traditional technique of stained glass. Its creator, Louis Comfort Tiffany knew masterfully apply not only but also in screen windows to lighting and decorative objects. Initially, they proceeded cutting very thin copper sheets that adhered to the edges of the glass fragments and these were connected together by soldering tin. Today, the process is similar but has been greatly accelerated by the creation of adhesive copper tape, on one hand, and the remarkable improvement of the tin alloy on the other. This technique, unlike the leaded glass, allows not only flat parts but also three-dimensional, being able to use very small glass cuts.
  • Painting on glass
    Painting on glass dating almost the same time when the first stained glass windows were created. Although initially it was limited only to establish the main lines of the figure, then it became more and more complex, as they were discovering new chemical (Silver Yellow) although the basic procedure remains the same as used in the Middle Ages. Unlike traditional painting is done on canvas or wood, the vision of painting on glass transparency is done not by the incident light.

    The process begins starting from a sketch on paper which contains the principal lines, indications of the colors and of course, glass cuts. Place the piece of glass to paint on the sketch and proceed to delineated or filleted taking as guide lines are below the glass. Then, this fragment is placed on a light table and veiling is effected, which consists in applying a uniform layer of dye that completely covers the drawing. Once dry, pigment extraction begins with the help of rough brushes and several points, thus obtaining, lights and shadows. Then this glass is taken to the oven and cook between 600 º and 650 º. Thus, the paint-glass remains permanently.
