History of Stained Glass
We get many inquires as to whether the proper term is stain glass or stained glass. Well, the proper term is stained glass. However there is a process in which stains are applied and fired in with a kiln. This is usually done for added effects such as facial or other body features, shadowing, or other special effects to enhance the beauty of the project. Though this process is often refered to as painting.
