Silver stain made its appearance around the year 1350 and forever changed the medium of stained glass. An oxide of silver applied to clear glass then heated in the kiln creates a chemical reaction that literally changes the color of the glass. Yellow to deep amber tones are possible depending on the concentration of silver in the mix and the chemistry of the base glass. This class can be taken alone or in conjunction with Beginning Glass Painting. In November of 2010 I "wrote the book" on silver stain - this is your opportunity to study with me.
