@ All of the brands and types of flux that we offer at Delphi are appropriate for soldering your glass art projects. If you prefer a paste flux, Rubyfluid makes a paste flux that is popular for soldering lamps and other dimensional projects as it is easy to apply with a brush but won't drip or run. Some artists prefer liquid or gel flux formulas. We offer multiple brands including some safety formulas that are non-irritation and non-corrosive. All of these options will allow your solder to flow smoothly and create a strong bond to copper foil or lead came. Don't forget to choose some flux remover to clean up your project when it's all done!
