Tinted Glass Materials
There are two basic way to tint a glass material using V-Ray. The first one is using the refraction color. As you remember in the reflection layer we use the filter to tint the reflection, in the refraction layer we could use the refraction color to tint the refraction. This option will tint the reflection even around the geometry. This is not the physically correct way for most of the glass material, but it is very useful to create Plexiglas and transparent plastics.
The second method to tint the reflection layer is using the Fog Color. This is the physically correct effect, because the coloration of the refraction depend on the thickness of the object. Thicker part of the object will appears darker while thinner parts will appear lighter.
