Patinas & Foil Tips Comment by Jennifer Bonesteel on Tuesday, April 22, 2014
@TripleR you will need to use a bronze wool or a metal brush to rough up the solder and remove patina and oxidation. You will also want to wipe it down with alcohol or wash it well to get the solder to adhere. If it's an extremely old panel you may wish to consult with a glass restoration specialist for tips and information.

Patinas & Foil Tips Comment by TripleR on Saturday, April 19, 2014
I noticed (new) solder will not adhere to the patina on (old) solder....trying to move O rings to a new position so the panel hangs better. Do I need to sand the patina off?
