Painted Light – An Uncommon Art
This description exemplifies the only fine art that is designed to be viewed via transmitted light as opposed to reflected light (as in oil, pastel or watercolor painting). It is also the only fine art where viewing can be appreciated equally from either side providing that the light sources; natural sunlight or manufactured light (incandescent, fluorescent, etc.) are available and opaque glass types are not included in the design.

The art of traditional glass painting predominantly lies in the controlled application of earth tone paints to block the transmission of light and create shadows on the colored glass. The process of tracing is the functional equivalent of line drawing. Whereas matting has the comparable effect of shading; completely different techniques of application are employed. Here the glass paint is applied over the entire surface of the glass and after drying is selectively removed to create depth, shadow and contour.

Colored paint may also be applied to vary the depth of color or to change the color of sections of the base glass. For example, the application of transparent yellow enamel or silver stain can change the color of blue glass to green without blocking the transmission of light.

The techniques of traditional glass painting are either unknown or unpracticed by the majority of stained glass crafts people.
