Notes on the copper foil method of stained glass construction. When you set out to make a stained glass window or hanging ornament you should first decide upon the method of assembling the stained glass pieces; whether to use copper foil or lead came. This study will help you to decide.
This is a further description of the greatest book ever written about Tiffany lampshades. Dr. Egon Neustadt's book The Lamps of Tiffany.
Free! The fairly complete instructions for making those stained glass stepping-stones which all the other kids have been playing with. Find out if this recent application of the stained glass craft is for you.
We thought that it might be nice to write up a small pamphlet on soldering to try to make things simpler, and to look at the process from a very fundamental viewpoint. This pamphlet deals with both the lead came and the copper foil method of construction. If you would like a copy of this little study, just click below and we will include it with your order. (Beware, if you try ordering just the free pamphlet alone, you'll still have to pay minimum shipping charges. Praemonitus praemunitus.)
Free! The traditional method of cementing or waterproofing a stained glass window that has been constructed with lead came. (Recently revised to reflect the latest theories about this ancient practice.) If you are a consenting adult, and would like a free copy of our own formula for leaded glass waterproofing cement, add it to your order. If you don't need to order anything, just send us a self-addressed stamped envelope and we will send it to you.
These patterns are published by Spectrum Glass Company. We receive one each month and keep them on file. They are almost always designed for window ornaments, or "sun-catchers". Please order no more than one or two each time.
