Product Description

Create with this stunningly different glass! Van Gogh features a smooth front surface and a gently textured reverse side that is coated with gorgeous color and sparkle. The durable coating will not chip when cutting and provides excellent opacity for making mosaics, stained glass boxes and more. All Van Gogh glass is handmade, which means actual glass may vary slightly from photo. Sold in 12" x 12" pieces.

Technical Information: Van Gogh glass is for use in stained glass and mosaics. Not recommended for backlit projects such as lamps and windows. Glass is not for use in kilns because it is both painted and silvered. Do not submerge or use harsh cleaners as it will damage the colored coating. Be mindful while grinding as a coarse bit may chip the backing. For best results use a fine grit grinder bit and gentle pressure. Mirror sealant can be applied to help protect the coating.

Mosaic vase and vanity projects created by artist and Delphi guest instructor Tom Snyder. Mosaic rose table by artist Keturah Esch. Stained glass checker board created by artist Michael Johnson. From "40 Great Stained Glass Projects" book #6324.

  •   Excellent for mosaics
By on
Pros : I love this glass. I find that if you are careful when you cut and break the glass that there are really very few problems with the backing chipping. I use it in mosaic projects only, and I score it into tiny pieces. The backing combined with the clear glass on top gives it depth.
Cons : None really.
Other Thoughts : I would not use it with a grinder or in windows.

Pros : unique foil pattern.
Cons : I can't really recomend this glass to anyone. The color is in the foil laminated to clear glass. It has to be handled very gently. the foil is very easy to scrape off and has to be ground and cut with a saw with the glass down. I was very disappointed with the glass.

  •   Rich Looking Glass
By on
Pros : Van Gogh is a specialty glass to say the least. I used it for mosaic work as well as foil and solder. It produces a beautiful project either way especially with light behind it. It is also easy to cut. No matching due to the random pattern.
Cons : Lovely glass but takes a lot of extra work due to the thin backing. It is like working with mirror glass. The black backing chips and scratches badly when grinding. Must be sealed for lead or foil and solder work.
Other Thoughts : I will probably use Van Gogh again due to the uniqueness of the glass even though it is somewhat of a pain to work with.
