Plating. What do you think of when I say that word? If it’s ‘FOOD’, you’re in good company! Thankfully for us, it applies to both food (lovely) AND stained glass (even more lovely).
Stained Glass Plating is when you stack or layer glass up to create limitless special effects; depth, shadowing, textures and colours galore. It adds a huge amount to your work.
Enough words! Here’s a video I made for you, showing the Plating Masters at Work and the effects they achieve with it.
It’s a stunning technique, isn’t it?

Once you get started with all the colours and effects it’s hard to imagine doing stained glass in flat panels ever again 🙂
“I have had a dream panel in my minds’ eye for 10 years now, but knew I needed to do plating to get the water portion the way I wanted. Now I feel like I could tackle it.” Jan Rollman, Plating Magic student
