Is there a difference between red painted glass and painted red glass? I guess painted red glass can be yellow, green, or etc..

  • Is "painted glass" common? I see "stained glass" and "coloured glass", but do many people paint glass?

    @JamesK It's fairly common for Pyrex cookware to be painted glass.

Yes, there is a difference.

As a native English speaker, the way I would naturally interpret these two statements is as follows:

A "painted red glass" is a glass made from red material, which has then been painted (with paint of any color).

A "red painted glass" is a glass made from material of any color, which has then been painted with red paint.
