Scottish Stained Glass:  Houston’s Premiere Painted Stained Glass Artist

Painted stained glass is a complicated process that we, at Scottish Stained Glass, have taken years to hone our skills in.  The process for painting stained glass is actually quite fascinating and requires years of extensive experience to master, which is why we have spent almost 3 decades learning this age-old craft. Whether your Houston church stained glass is old or new, we can confidently handle any scope of work.  From painted stained glass restoration to original painted stained glass creation, we are the Houston areas specialists. To get a better understanding of the complex processes involved in crafting your one-of-a-kind painted stained glass masterpiece, read on.

The Lovely Tradition Of Painted Stained On Churches

There is no denying that painted stained glass is a gorgeous and unique way to add character and charm to chapels in Houston.  Although it may appear simple, it is actually achieved through a complicated and, some may say, scientific method because the colors you see on painted stained glass are actually achieved through the use of complicated chemical interactions of different minerals and oils.

Painted Stained Glass Method 1

The artist starts with colored glass and paints special black paint made of oils and minerals onto it.  This piece of glass is then fired in our kiln at 1250-1450 for a couple of hours until the paint melts into the glass.  The paint then becomes part of the glass and will never rub off or be removed.

Painted Stained Glass Method 2

The second method involves clear glass.  During this process, colors are painted on a clear piece of glass one at a time and fired in between layers of color to build up layers of shading or color. Any color that involves the use of yellow can be particularly difficult in this method as the chemical used for yellows color (silver staining) is very toxic and will destroy other colors.  For this reason, when trying to achieve the color green for instance, the toxic yellow must be painted on the opposite side of the glass as the blue paint in order to keep the yellow from damaging the blue paint.

Houston’s Painted Stained Glass Experts

Matching styles on restoration projects is definitely a challenge and means figuring out what type of techniques the original artist used.  For example, some artists would sometimes paint the black paint on their glass and then use a wood stick to rub off part of the black paint to give the piece texture. They would also use this technique to scribe in individual elements like blades of glass.

Whatever the original technique our skilled artists do numerous iterations to exactly mimic the look of your chapel’s stained glass. Difficult as it may be,  we are always up to the challenge here at Scottish Stained Glass and love what we do!  Contact us to find out more about original or restoration painted stained glass for your Houston Church today!

Living in San Antonio is wonderful when it comes to the delicious food, beautiful scenery, strong sense of community, diverse neighborhoods, growing population, newly thriving art scene, and affordable homes. With so much to offer, this historical, military city is the seventh largest city in the U.S. but offers unbelievably low cost of living. According to San Antonio Magazine, comparable average listing prices for homes in San Antonio are $280,275 while similar real estate in New York are listed at $2.8 million. While you may get more bang for your buck in San Antonio with larger homes, there are over half a million houses in San Antonio alone making it very likely that your next door neighbor is within 15 feet of you. As many San Antonio homeowners know, privacy can definitely be an issue. With low living and housing costs, home renovations are that much easier to fit into any San Antonio homeowner’s budget!

Stained Glass and Leaded Glass Privacy Windows

Your bedroom should always be a sanctuary, especially when it comes to your privacy needs. Often times people think of blinds or drapes as the best option for bedroom privacy, but they end up having to sacrifice that beautiful San Antonio sunlight, surrounding scenery, and end up with replacement and repair costs. Stained glass and leaded glass are the perfect solution for any San Antonio homeowner’s privacy needs! Not only do you get that wonderful, natural sunlight in your bedroom, there’s no need to worry about your close-by neighbors being able to peek into your bedroom. If sunlight is the problem in your bedroom, there are certain types of stained glass and leaded glass that actually will block out that light without the need of unappealing black-out curtains. With endless options in style, color, and texture, stained glass and leaded glass windows give you the creative ability to design any narrative to your bedroom.

Our design experts can help you create any custom stained or leaded glass windows! Call today for an in-home consultation on how we can really transform your bedroom into the sanctuary you deserve: 830-214-7835

Stained Glass Sidelights Provide Privacy for Your Houston Home

Posted January 4th, 2018 by ssgadmin

According to the New York Times, Houston’s housing market continues to be unsinkable even after Hurricane Harvey. The Houston area grows approximately by 400 people daily and builds 40,000 housing units a year, making it the nation’s largest new-housing market. This is unbelievable news for Houston home owners, especially since it consistently trends as a seller’s market. It’s always a great time for home owners to renovate their homes, in order to increase their resale value. A great starter renovation is always the entryway.

Privacy Stained Glass Sidelights

Sidelights in your Houston home entryway are a great starter option for renovation. Sidelights are often selling points in a home due to the fact that they let in an abundance of natural light, creating an open, bright entryway for great first impressions. The problem with typical, manufactured sidelights is the fact that they lack privacy, letting any neighborhood stroller to see clearly into your home and family. Not only is this a privacy issue, but it can definitely be a safety issue as well.

Blinds and drapes could be custom made for your sidelights, but they often take away from your curb appeal and restrains that beautiful natural light. The best option for maintaining aesthetics, safety, and privacy are stained glass sidelights.

Stained Glass Sidelights Renovation

The process begins with an in-home consultation with one of our highly experienced, local glass artisan. They meet with you to hand design the perfect style and color sidelights that complement the rest of your entryway and home. After taking thorough measurements as well, our artisans and design team bring these sketches to life. We work with you every step of the process, ensuring you love every piece of glass and design custom created for your Houston home’s new sidelights. After the sidelights are polished, waterproofed, and finalized, our experienced installers carefully install your home’s new pieces of custom art.

Adding Stained Glass to the Entryway of Your Denver Home

Posted January 4th, 2018 by ssgadmin

The real estate market in Denver is thriving right now due to the fact that Denver is the fastest growing city in the U.S. It’s definitely a seller’s market here, which is great news for Denver homeowners! With this strong, current trend in the real estate market, it’s a great idea to add more equity and curb appeal to your home and investment. Adding stained glass to your entryway can really add that special, unique touch to your Denver home!

Considering Privacy Stained Glass for Your Entryway

The standard glass featured in many entryways is great for allowing natural light into your home, but unfortunately doesn’t give any of the resident’s privacy. Privacy stained glass is a great option for those who want natural light in their entryways as well as reducing outside visibility. Blinds and drapes aren’t really options for entryways, so privacy stained glass is your best option for better concealment.

Increasing Your Denver Home’s Value

Adding stained glass to your entryway is a wonderful, creative way in quickly increasing your Denver home’s perceived and resale value. According to HGTV, home improvement projects cost approximately 20 to 25 cents to the dollar- the other 75 to 80 cents spent go directly back into the home through increased value. The entryway is also projected as the highest cost regained percentage in renovation at 85.6%, almost 10% higher than a kitchen or basement remodel. Remodeling your entryway is a great starting point to any home renovation since it’s the smallest project and highest cost regained investment.

Stained Glass Styles

Stained glass styles can range from antique to contemporary, from colorful to clear and textured. With so many different styles and colors to choose from, you can really create a custom piece of art for your entryway. We have talented, local stained glass artisans that will work with you every step of the way to custom make the grand entryway that will escalate your curb appeal!

Basement renovations are all the rage right now in Kansas City, as real estate booms and people flock to the Midwest, and across the nation. Renovating a basement can add not only square footage to your Kansas City home but also a significant amount of retail value. One thing we recommend considering for your basement remodel is stained glass windows. This simple but lively addition will turn any basement into a stunner and is relatively inexpensive. Read on to find out why we think basements are the perfect place for stained glass windows.

At Scottish Stained Glass we have seen many boring basements turn into something spectacular with stained glass. If you are doing a renovation on your Kansas City home, this is the perfect time to add this wonderful and versatile feature. There are many reasons why we believe this:

Stained Glass Brightens Your Basement: Let’s face it–basements are dull and boring. However, stained glass can bring that pop of color to your basement remodel that really makes it stand out. Don’t settle for an average basement–get something you’re really going to love and somewhere you want to spend time with stained glass.

Stained Glass Covers Ugly Window Wells In Basement: Basements typically have ugly views of the ground, street or even worse, window wells. If you are taking the time to redo your basement, don’t settle for mediocre views or curtains. Instead get something lovely, personal and stylish like stained glass windows to cover the less than perfect views.

Beyond just treating the window with stained glass you are, of course always adding value to any stained glass window you add to your Kansas City Home. Contact Scottish Window Tinting for a free, stained glass window estimate for your basement today!

A Guide To Stained Glass Appraisal

Posted October 26th, 2017 by ssgadmin

How Stained Glass Is Appraised?

We often talk about how stained glass windows add value to homes right here in the Colorado Springs area and in other cities across the country that we serve. How stained glass adds value is based essentially on how the glass appraises. You may think appraisals are only something for galleries or auctions but in all reality, regardless of whether you are talking about an antique stained glass window, a stained glass window built in the last twenty years or a church stained glass window, appraisals are relevant, accessible and something you may want to consider for insurance policies or to help with an estimate for the sale of a home. So how are stained glass windows appraised? Find out the basics below!

Who Can Appraise My Colorado Springs Stained Glass Window?

As we mentioned stained glass appraisals are very accessible–especially in the age of the internet.  Regardless of location: church, synagogue or home, it can be appraised by a professional from the American Consultation of Stained Glass. They can found online at www.americanstainedglass.org.

What Do Stained Glass Window Appraisers Look For?

Appraisers look for a variety of features when determining how much stained glass windows are worth. Below are some of the key elements that can increase or detract from the value of your stained glass.

Stained Glass Design: Ex: Are the pieces painted/fired with stencil designs or are they straight colored glass? Did the artist use straight lines or varied lines? Varied lines involved more time and effort to cut the glass, therefore making it worth more.

Stained Glass Construction Techniques: will also count the layers used– some use two layers; some use four. Is there custom painting design involved or just simple leadlines and no design? Are there any medallions, figures or symbols used in the design? These are some of the things appraisers will look at when determining value.
*Note: Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to stained glass elements–smaller stained glass pieces used in a window compared to larger pieces, that automatically increases the value.

Stained Glass Artist:  Appraisers will consider who made the glass, also, when and where.  This is because, just like with high-end art, certain names command more respect and money in the stained glass world.
Stained glass Age:  Age matters, as well. Typically the older the window the more it’s worth as it is harder to replace.  The rarer something is, the higher price it will always command.

Stained Glass Condition: Finally, appraisers will look at the current condition of the glass to see how good (or damaged) it is, as well as the presence of or lack of a protective coating.

As with most things, there are plenty of factors that go into determining the value of stained glass windows–and estimates will even vary from appraiser to appraiser. If you have any questions on stained glass appraisals or are thinking about adding a stained glass masterpiece to your Colorado Springs home or church, contact Scottish Stained Glass today!

The term mid-century modern refers specifically to architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (1933 to 1965).

In the stained glass arena, it often means glass that borrows from architectural designers like Frank Lloyd Wright or other well-renowned designers/styles from that same era.
