The Painted Glass Restoration Process for Colorado Springs Properties

Painted glass restoration should be completed every 75 to 100 years for those looking to preserve their stained glass. When it comes to restoring painted glass, you’ll need a trained artist that understands proper conservation. When we have your stained glass back at our studio, it will be soaked in a special solution for about two weeks in order to remove all the dirt and debris. This also allows us to disassemble it with no major effort. Painted glass restoration requires extensive color matching which is achieved through a trial-and-error basis. Once we create the perfect color match, our painted glass artist will replicate every brush stroke with precision. Painted glass restoration is completed in layers, meaning the glass has to be transported to the kiln for firing each time.
