Bubble Glass for antique china cabinet door

The bubble glass in the door was the easy part to this restoration. Antique door like this have very thin veneer wood front . The red brown putty that holds the glass in has porcelain cement in it. It is very hard  to remove the putty and install glass without damaging the wood .  I mix a special putty to match the color of the original putty. Then using some ” pitch black  ” I age the  restoration to match a hundred years of dirt.
