Stained glass supplies and tools, art and architectural glass, and so much more!
Now that you've completed your stained glass or mosaic masterpiece, you'll need to display it. When you want to use something more interesting than a jump ring, yet stronger than tinned copper wire, try a pair of these heavy duty steel scroll shapes. They are plated in 60/40 solder, so they attach easily and they take patina. The solder coating also protects them against corrosion. They can be arranged in a number of ways, along the top or down the sides of your work. Size: 1.75" by 0.75". Made in the U.S.A. Sold by the pair.
A tin-plated copper wire that solders very readily to lead and copper foil. Use in small loops on your work piece to provide a place for attaching your chain or hanging cord, or bend it in various shapes to create a decorative accent. Available in #14 and #18 gauge.
Suction hangers are utilized by stained glass people almost everywhere for attaching stained glass ornaments (or sun catchers as they are sometimes called), to window panes.
The perfect solution to the problem of what to do when you want to hang a small sun catcher or other small stained glass piece onto the refrigerator. Rather than drive a nail into the refrigerator and having all the cold air come out, why not stick the sun catcher up there with a magnet. Why not indeed!? This magnetic material consists of a powdered steel substance combined with something else which allows it to be flexible, and also allows you to cut it with a scissors. Thus, you can use as much or as little as you wish, and stick it to the backside of the piece you want to hang up. Width is 1/2". Sold by the foot or in larger rolls.
$1.59, 3 for $4.29, 6 for $7.62
For hanging stained glass sun-catchers. 12 pound break strength. Also good for repairing black mesh stockings. 33 yard roll.
