Stained Glass Class - finished cutting

2009
Tuesday, February 24

Today I finished cutting all the pieces for my stained glass iris project. It had taken a while, which makes it even sweeter. Now I can start copper foiling.

Since glass can't be soldered, the edge of each glass piece is covered by a thin strip of copper foil. The foil then gets wrapped around the edges and burnished down. The foil then gets soldered together. I always wondered how stained glass holders together.... and now I know.
