Venetian Chandelier Reproduction
An interesting challenge was presented in recreating broken parts of an antique Venetian Chandelier. Many of the parts were solid glass (decorative leaves, stems and embossed details) so the use of color overlay, powder or frit wasn't an option for matching the antique color. Our team had to research a chemical recipe that would be as close a match as possible so the replicated parts would blend in with the originals. Through collaboration with our partners, we succeeded in melting a color pot that produced a near perfect match to restore the chandelier.
