How to Choose Glass for Glass Art : Using Opalescent Glass for Glass Art


I am going down the color spectrum of glass
that they have available here so that we can choose our own particular glasses for our
project today. I would like to start with an opalescent, the opalescent is actually
a piece of glass where more than one color has been used and brought together and in
this piece, particular piece, you can see there’s a red, an orange and a yellow or almost
gold color. That have been brought together in the melting process it’s a gorgeous glass.
Its semi-opaque, which means that it’s not very easy to see through but the light can
still get through; which is what you want in a lot of your stained glass panels, in
also in your leaded glass panels. I mean not leaded, there’s the leaded and also the foil
glass panels. These are also really good for mosaics. You can see here we have a lighter
shade, which is more of an orange, a peach and yellow or white mixture, so there’s just
so many different pieces of glass. Each one has its own character in the colors and how
they’re mixed and just a wonderful selection.
