The Literary Agent’s “Wow!”

Part 2

A practical tale of silver stain

A while ago, I promised you the low-down on the techniques we used to silver stain a fine front door.

The client’s brief was, his window had to have the ‘”Wow!” effect’. And the ‘”Wow!” effect’ was what our client got. If you’re interested in the story of its design, you’ll find Part 1 here – and just be sure to come back afterwards to learn how it was done. 

Here now are the techniques. 

There’s nothing magical. But the effects you can achieve are extraordinary.

How Do I Follow That … ?

With sandpaper, oil and silver stain - that's how

OK, so last time it was Brigitte Bardot, Bill Haley, a broken-nosed bodyguard with two missing fingers, Henry Miller and – a pussy cat … and all this in a stained glass studio?

So how do I follow that?

I see that David – my fellow director and master glass painter – has left me with one Hell of a cliff-hanger.

Which gives me an idea for your next video demonstration …

Silver Stain

A video demonstration

Now our client had approved the 16 designs he’d asked for, and so it was back to us to secure his agreement on the painted glass itself – on what it must look like when it’s finished.

His insistence was, his skylights must look ancient.

And that is why we spent these last few weeks establishing and refining the necessary techniques to make the glass look very old.

Today the client’s architect called in to see the samples we had made.

The meeting went as well as you could wish.

So now we can reveal for the first time how the ancient-looking glass was stained – including a short video for you.
