Manufacture of stained glass, as a special kind of skill, has thousand years, if not more. In the ancient stained glass images were used only for window openings, because no alternatives are not provided equipment to create them. Way to create the first stained-glass windows are very difficult and time consuming: colored glass cut through patterns, and then they are fastened together strips of lead, which flatten out and solder a special solder. Similar amazing stained glass windows were seen from afar, but near the elegance did not differ, so you can decorate them was only the broad window openings. The turning point in the stained glass was an idea famous American decorator Tiffany replace with strips of lead in stained glass at the thinnest copper foil, and held together by solder.
These stained-glass images enthralled with the grace and therefore have widely used in interiors as lampshades, walls, furniture elements. Furniture - dressers, wardrobes, cupboards, partitions, usually produced pieces specifically for these stained glass image. Stained glass art should ustanavlvat so as to be possible to admire the pattern on the light, but also required a high strength fastener, which acted as a grid of thin wooden sticks, and they fulfilled the function of support. At present, the Tiffany is overly cumbersome and is reserved for the manufacture of partitions, small lamp shades and stained glass paintings. Development of a single, individual stained glass pattern - it is very expensive. And when you want to embed an image in a stained-glass interior elements such as doors (interior) or furniture, recently used cutting-edge production technology Stained Glass - stained glass polymer, direct printing on glass. This should take into account that the stained glass is different from the picture on the glass so that it contains the bulk jumpers: Tiffany in technology - copper, in the old stained-glass window - lead.
If we are talking about direct printing, there are no such bridges in this direct printing is more like painting on glass. But the advanced technology to the rescue - for a stained glass pattern applied polymer resins. Canvas is applied to glass using special equipment, and so the stained glass will be clearly defined contours. Such contours caused by polymeric resins are both transparent and in different colors, simulating the copper, lead, gold and other metals. Due to the fact that such a manufacturing technique involves working with a solid glass, it allows you to create stained glass designs for decoration of interior details, load-bearing (Eg, countertops and other horizontal planes). Polymer method, in addition, allows to put on the stained-glass mirrors and tinted glass.
