A lot of discussion and consideration the took place as to the best option for reconstructing the images on the glass. We considered back-painting, plating, re-firing, and re-painting with new glass. The overall size of the window and increased weight involved with plating became a factor. The condition of the stonework also became an issue. We finally decided our best option was to archive the original glass, and to completely cut and repaint ALL of the painted glass, but keep the original unpainted coloured glass. All of the original glass was cleaned, boxed, labelled and given to the church for safe keeping / study.
