Over the past several months we have been getting tons of calls asking for painted glass. There must be something in the air because I have personally done 3 this month alone. You can see in our gallery this isn't new territory for us but we keep getting surprised with new and interesting applications. Below is a job of mine where we did several painted glass boxes for the bathrooms and wet bars.
In order to maintain the color and have it not be obscured with a tint we use 1/4"-1/2" Starphire glass. 1/4" is typically used in back-splashes and boxes whereas the thicker glass is used for painted glass walls, table tops, and dividers.
The entire process is as follows:
- We first do our Free Estimate and take our measurements.
- A quote is then prepared and emailed along with a photo or physical sample of the requested color.
- Once a go-ahead is given, we order and dry fit the annealed glass.
- If all is well, we send it out to be tempered and then painted.
- We install the glass.
The whole process is different from our normal 7-10 business day lead time. It takes 4-6 weeks depending on scale.
