The making of Stained Glass windows has hardly changed since the 12th century. A Stained Glass window consists of pieces of coloured glass held together in a latticed web of lead. The glass can have details such as faces, hands or drapery painted and fired on to it in black or brown paint. The paint has a mix of ground glass in it which when heated to very high temperatures fuses on to the surface of the glass. Around 1300 yellow stain was discovered. This had the ability to turn white glass yellow or blue glass green. This was useful in highlighting hair, Halo’s and crowns. This is where the term Stained Glass comes from.
