plating glass to match historic color and textures

Despite the wide variety of glass colors and textures available to us today it may sometimes still be impossible to find a replacement glass that is a satisfactory match for historic glass. When it is necessary to do so we have several techniques that can be used to make a satisfactory match. One of those is "plating" where 2 pieces of glass are glazed over one another to achieve the desired result.

This picture shows some of the glass sitting on the rubbing of the damaged window indicating where it will be plated behind other glass during the panel's restoration in order to match the color and/or texture of the original antique glass.
