Newly added RAL Color chart to website for back painted glass colors.
We are presently back painting annealed and tempered glass, no laminated at this time due to the curing process for our coatings. We do not want to mess with the integrity of laminated glass and take a chance of delamination due to the curing process witch is a baked on coating process.
Most projects , like marker boards are starphire glass and tempered.
We can add Z-clips to our back painted glass upon your request.
Hope to see your request for quotes on you back painted glass.

Jim Le Blanc, Glass Artist
Over the last 32 years I have been a glass artist. Etched and Carved Glass,
Crystal engraving, Kiln cast Glass, Bent Glass, Architectural Signage with paint filled text, Lobby panels with paint filled logo's, and much more.
We have been testing back painted glass for some time now, and are proceeding in interring the market offering back painted glass, like no other previous furnished.
We believe that the product we have developed is a quality product, with durability, Many color options ( soon to be added to color swatch section in our website), Ability for someone to supply there glass to be back painted. Seamed edges cut to size to be able to(machine polished) HPE the edges after painting with out the problem of paint coming off.
We have developed a baked on coating system to out last any other method of back painting on glass. Opaque colors with a wide range of options that will not show mirror mastic thru the paint surface over time.
We are going to offer back painting on 1/8", 3/16", 1/4",5/16", 3/8". 1/2".5/8", and 3/4" ( wall panels,marker boards, counter tops, vanity's tops, back splash panels, switch plate covers .
We suggest that the clients supply there own glass to be back painted, this way we can be more competitive on pricing and lead times. For best results we also suggest using starphire glass for best color results. If clear glass (with green tint) will change the shade of original color. Only approved color samples will be used to proceed with productions.
We will be posting our terms and conditions in our website and much more for anyone to view, glass company clients, architects, designers, as well as in users, No pricing will be discussed unless you are in the trades, such as glass company's that supply glass and installation.
Thanks for your business
