Stained Glass Sheet
Our Premier mosaic product!
Wonderful 3mm thick stained glass. Opalised, Iridescent, Cathedral and Mirror.
All our glass is made in the traditional way of “hand ladling” glass, so from time to time colours may vary. When it comes in mixed coloured sheet glass, this means that each sheet has its individual characteristics.
Glass is coloured by adding metal oxides or powders to molten glass. The colour is determined by the additive used. Gold makes red glass, copper oxides also make glass blue to bluish green. Sulphur and cadmium make yellow. etc. Red or Pink Glass is typically more costly than other colours, and iridised, mirror and dichroic treatments also increase the cost.
Iridised glass is made by adding a thin coating of metal oxide to the glass sheet, giving a rainbow effect. Dichroic glass is made by adding multiple ultra-thin layers of these oxides to the glass. Dichroic glass changes colour depending on the angle of viewing. Mirror is made by applying a thin layer of silver or aluminium onto the back of a sheet of glass.
Hobby squares represent a portion of the whole sheet and therefore could vary from the images shown. Because of the screen resolution used colors on the website may slightly vary from the actual product colours.
Available in 130x200mm sheets and the new larger format “Hobby Squares”. These vary in size, depending on manufacturer: from 235x260mm up to 300x300mm square.
