Along with classical composing techniques came many new technologies to reduce the cost and simplify the production of stained-glass windows.In the manufacture of modern art stained-glass windows are not only used all kinds of silica glass, but also a cheap and easy plexiglass (acrylic glass) having a minimum color gamut.
Equipment and tools for stained glass are different depending on their type.If the creation of stained glass soldering required tools for cutting, splitting and polishing glass, soldering, etc., to create a stained glass fusing technique, among other things, can not do without an expensive oven for baking glass.However, this does not mean that it is impossible to create a stained glass window spechnoy at home: you can buy a small amount of the furnace and power.
Production fusing-stained glass includes the steps of heating, soaking at specified temperature, quench, stress relief and cooling naturall
- temperature processing lends itself to solid glass base inlaid with colored pieces of her special glass suitable for baking;
- or baked fyuzingovye individual elements later affixed to the tempered glass.
applicable Baking and technology painted bend with the application of silicate paints.Another technology "razukrashki" glass and mirrors - contour filler stained.Its manufacture uses a programmable loop machine, causing the polymer contour drawing.After his master drying method manually filling elements formed a closed loop, colored acrylic paints.This technology is widely used for decorating closet, creating a ceiling, stained glass windows and doors.It can be used to create stained glass and polycarbonate.
special area of production of stained glass - laminated imitation.They allow you to inexpensively decorate your house works of decorative art.At the same time, these stained glass windows are short-lived and are deprived of the play of light, which is beautiful stained glass window classic.
- most successful imitation - false stained glass windows - created by sticking to the glass elements cut from colored film, and overlapping joints lead broach;
- Cheaper and "angry" option - one-piece self-adhesive stained glass from transparent or colored film, as well as single labels on glass, having the likeness of color elements and contours of stained glass.
There is also a self-adhesive roll with stained glass windows, made of paper, but it is an option for registration of opaque surfaces, which, so to speak, "another story."
Technology has reached the point that it became possible to print on the glass stained glass, as well as any other material.UV printing stained much cheaper, although involves the application of the image on the back side of the glass and the coating protective film.Technology provides dense bright image can be printed with any image on any, including relief surfaces.
