A number of years ago a neighbor brought us this old wooden frame stained glass window. Fortunately the only glass broken in it was one of the center frosted (Glue Chip) pieces of glass. While the wooden frame looks flimsy it was quite solid and our clients wanted to leave it as is. Replacing the one piece of broken glass was not a big issue, but over the years and numerous coats of paint, the colored glass become speckled or had a substantial amount of paint on it. The only way to remove that paint from that rough textured glass was to pick it off little by little with an X-Acto knife, ensuring that we did not scratch this old glass. After this detailed cleaning we then polished the glass, restoring it to it’s original beauty.
