Making motifs

Making motifs on glass is done in several ways depending on the complexity. Motifs are done on glass by using a computer-prepared (vectorized) pattern (matrix) of the "PVC" films. The film is fixed to the glass after what it is sandblasted and enameled. After sand blasting the protected layer remains transparent while the rest, which was not protected, forms a motive. With this procedure we produce matte motifs or motifs in one color. To achieve multicolored motifs, we apply the procedure of silk-screen print. For the procedure of silk-screen print the color is applied in the same layer over the screen where the motif is prepared. As the screen selectively leaks the paint the pigment remains fixed on the glass only in the part where a motif is supposed to be. The process of applying color through the screen is repeated for each color individually to achieve motifs in more colors. Motifs in colors are enameled with a ceramic pigment after what they are being tempered. This procedure ensures the color stability, chemical resistance, mechanical and atmospheric effects, "UV" radiation.

Creating motifs can be done on all types of glass regardless of the thickness. Motifs can be formed within a glass block or can be assembled from multiple pieces and form bigger motifs.
