So when this video starts, you see a fearsome monster. You’ll quickly recognise the careful trace-lines.
But you’ll also see some thicker, lighter lines.
Now these lines are half-tones made from glass paint mixed with oil.
All on top of unfired glass paint mixed with water. Unfired.
And in this video you see how we turn these half-tones into gorgeous shadows.
Remember: this is oil paint on top of unfired tracing and shading.
You see how easy shading is with oil – with the right oil, and with the correct technique.
That’s how useful oil paint is – when you know how.
We’ve prepared a complete guide to the techniques of stained glass painting. See here.
