Stained Glass Patterns

Stained glass, as an art form, reached its height in the Middle Ages when it became a major pictorial form and was used to illustrate the narratives of the Bible to a largely illiterate populace.

A stained glass is actually formed by combining pieces of colored glass to form a shape or design by various engineering techniques undergoing the process of glass manufacturing.

Here stained glass patterns have been reflected on glass at home by the reverse glass painting technique.

Instead of curving the glass, etching patterns have been reproduced using transparent materials.

All the following designs have been implemented on clear glasses. After the design is drawn and colored, etching effects have been incorporated on the top of the colored surface.

The final painting is best viewed from the reverse side of the painted surface with an enlightened background.
