The antique light fixture was missing a couple panels.  We  used an antique seedy  glass to make the replacement panels.

CRYSTAL REPAIR WATERFORD BOWL CHIPPED GLASS FOOT

Thursday, April 12th, 2012 Posted in All Repair Projects, Chipped Glass Repair, Waterford Crystal Repair | Comments Off on CRYSTAL REPAIR WATERFORD BOWL CHIPPED GLASS FOOT

The Waterford Bowl had a large chip on the base.  The chip was to large to grind and polish out.  I found a broken candle stick that had the same shape base.  I removed the base from the damaged candlestick to use on the bowl.

Antique Light Repair Bent glass panels

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique lamp repair, Bent Glass | Comments Off on Antique Light Repair Bent glass panels

The restoration of the old home included vintage light fixtures. The rust iron fixture had a couple of bent glass panels missing. The glass was a seedy glass. Seedy glass has a lot of bubbles and texture. Using a good panel I made a mold for bending the replacement curved glass.
