How Do You Create a Painted Glass Portrait?


Painted glass can be an incredible gift for the holidays. Painted glass provides a great way to open up creatively and have a one-of-a-kind piece of art created for you or your loved ones. With the holidays approaching, finding that thoughtful gift for anyone in your family can be tough. Painted glass doesn’t require installation– you can decide if you want a floating or hanging panel in addition to window installation. For Fort Worth residents looking to create a painted glass portrait, you may be curious about the exact process.

The Painted Glass Portrait Process for Fort Worth Properties

In order to create a painted glass portrait, our painted glass artist will need references. Photographs of the intended subject will be needed in order to properly recreate likeness. If you’d like a portrait of an important figure that’s outside of your family, we’ll take the time to research that subject. In order to get the wardrobe and props right, we may utilize a live model for this process. This way our artist can get an accurate representation of how the fabrics lay and all the shadowing and depth that go into portrait painting. Portrait glass painting requires a lot of patience since this is completed in several layers. After each layer is completed, the glass has to be carefully transported to the kiln for firing.
