The Stained Glass Classroom
Projects Using Copper Foil, Lead & Mosaic TechniquesUnknown - 2006
With 3 easy-to-master techniques, any crafter can create attention-grabbing, light-catching stained-glass projects from an Art Nouveau Tulip Panel to boxes, candleholders, birdhouses, and garden stepping stones. Artist Vicki Payne demystifies all the basic processes of using copper foil, leaded came (a technique in which individual pieces of glass are fitted into metal channels), and mosaics. She also provides beautiful patterns for creating useful and decorative items using each of the methods. Illuminating color photos; information on a variety of tools (cutters, grinders, smoothing stones, glass squaring bars) and materials; and detailed instructions for cutting the glass, soldering, and assembling the finished product will start beginners off on this classic craft.
