Dichroic glass is glass which displays two different colors by undergoing a color change in certain lighting conditions. Dichroic Painting is a new concept in kiln formed glass using dichroic extract which is not just a new product, but a new concept in dichroic coatings. Dichroic extract is a pure form of a high quality coating literally extracted off dichroic glass. This innovative method gives the user a stable dichroic effect. The dichroic extract can be applied to art glass somewhat like paint or glass powder but without regard to COE. Kate MacLeod’s dichroic painting uses the dichroic extract produced by Coatings by Sandberg (“CBS”) in Orange, CA.

Bird in Flight. This 8” x 12” black glass dichroic painting was creatively painted with CBS Dichroic Extract. The glimmer, sparkle, and life of the art is aroused by teasing the near microscopic particles of dichroic glass to their precise position, such as a master painter would accomplish with multiple layers. Planned for production in the near future, a wildlife series will soon appear in your favorite galleries.
