Cold paint

Stained Glass Windows: Managing Environmental Deterioration, published by Historic England in 2020 defines cold paint as: “Colouring of glass by cold application of oil paint, as opposed to enamelling or firing (flashing), in which powdered glasses and coloured pigments are fused to the surface by heating. Often used historically for retouching.”
