Decorative Colored Glass
Adding color to an etched glass design creates a brilliant effect and adds additional depth and highlights to the design details in the 3 dimensionally carved glass surfaces.
The color is applied through air brushing and any color can of course be used. Colors are blended over the glass surface to create even more of a 3 dimensional effect.
Painted glass designs are very popular for door glass and window glass, as well as dividers. IF the glass is in direct sunlight, the colors will likely fade over time, but most entry doors have some degree of shade, so that’s not usually a big issue.
We can personally attest to this, with our front door glass installed back in 1989. That door glass is still in place today, and shows all the soft highlights of the pastel colors that were applied to the southwest adobe style design.
Of course direct sun not being an issue for indoor architectural glass, like showers and dividers, the color will never fade and is a fantastic addition, bringing in color from other decor items like wallpaper, throw pillows, floor tile, custom colors will
to help coordinate and compliment, really finishing off that “custom look.”
