Silver Creek Industries is a family-owned and operated business that creates fabulous hand-painted art glass in Wisconsin.
Art glass is not traditional “leaded stained glass”. Unlike “church stained glass”, art glass is made on a single pane of glass. We use an acrylic enamel material to draw the “lead” lines on the glass. These lines form chambers that hold special paints that are applied by hand. The finished art glass panel looks like traditional stained glass, but at a fraction of the cost.
The paints we use are specially formulated to adhere to the glass and to resist fading for many years. Our art glass panel is going to last a long time. Probably longer than you’ll want to look at it!
Hand-painted art glass does have its limitations though. It is intended for indoor use only. The color is only on the surface, not part of the glass itself. It will not withstand exposure to wet conditions, so “No, you can’t hang it outside”.
