Back Painted Glass
Painted glass makes it possible to incorporate whites, pastels and soft earthtones in your designs. Eight options representing a harmony of expression are currently available. The paint color is applied to the underside of the glass and the color shines through the top of the glass. As of 2014, all painted glass use Starphire Glass. However, starphire glass is only available up to ½” thick. So on tables that normally use ¾” thick glass, the glass will be ½”thick starphire tempered glass. Painted glass on occasion will also exhibit shadow lines that are parallel to the outside edge on the under side of the glass. These are caused by light entering thru the edge and bevel of the glass and casting shadows. These are not imperfections in the glass and cannot be controlled. Custom color matches are available for a one-time charge of $450 list.
Satin Glass or rather acid etched glass has a distinctive, uniformly smooth and satin-like appearance. Acid Etched Glass admits light while providing softening and vision control. It’s ethereal transparency looks like a traditional, sand-blasted piece of glass – but because the glass is etched on one side in actual acid during production, the “frosted” surface doesn’t get ruined from finger prints or other oils. If it does get dirty, it can be cleaned easily without losing the frosted effect like a piece of sandblasted glass does.
