This guide provides a selective list of print and multimedia resources about coloring glass. For additional information, please search our library catalog or contact a reference librarian through our Ask a Librarian service.
Glass may be colored by one of three main processes: (a) using a dissolved metallic oxide to impart a color throughout, (b) forming a dispersion of some substance in a colloidal state, and (c) suspending particles of pigments to form opaque colors..
Do you work with glass? Are you a glass blower, lamp worker, beader, artist, crafter, or maker?
