Colors are one of the most important aspects of stained glass. They can be used to create a mood, set a tone, and even tell a story. But how do you choose the right colors for your project?
There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing colors for stained glass. The first is the type of glass you’re using.
Some glass is more transparent than others, so the color you use will show through more. You’ll also want to consider the light source. If you’re using natural light, the colors will appear different than if you’re using artificial light.
The next thing to think about is the subject matter of your project. What are you trying to convey with your glass painting? Is it a calm scene or a more active one? Do you want the colors to be bright and cheerful or more subdued?
Once you’ve considered all of these factors, it’s time to start choosing your colors and start painting.
