The Restored Window
Some of you may have seen the post I did a couple of months ago about the damage to this beautiful 100 year old window in a home in Shaughnessy and our removal of it for restoration.
After we had got the damaged section back to our studio, we were able to find an excellent colour match for the original glass – a mouth-blown, hand-made European glass from our collection that we brought with us from England years ago. A new structural drawing was made, and the glass cut to shape. Various types of paint, binders and techniques were tested (the fun part!) to find the closest match possible to the original artist’s style. The new section was then re-leaded and this heritage window brought back to its full glory!
