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.
