Product Description

Glass artists need a very specific mix of alloys in their solder to get a smooth and clean bead on their work. Anything else is difficult and sometimes impossible to work with. 60/40 stays in a liquid stage longer, giving you more time to produce smooth solder seams. It also melts at a lower temperature than 50/50 and is popular among beginners as well as experienced crafters. Convenient 1 lb. spools.

60% TIN / 40% LEAD STAINED GLASS SOLDER: For use on copper foil seams and lead came seams. Offers superior flow over 50/50 with more flow per inch than 50/50. Melting temperature: 361° - 376°F.

Pinwheel stained glass panel by artist Ellen Blake of Obsidian Studio from Delphi's Online Artist Gallery. Square kaleidoscope panel by artist Molly Pratt, from Delphi's Online Artist Gallery. Sailboat project by artist Kimberly Clements, From Delphi's Online Artist Gallery. Pattern from "Nature's Splendor" book #6797.

Pros : Flows well and takes patina
Cons : None
Other Thoughts : Too bad lead free does not behave like this stuff. I use it quite a bit and find that it use it for many of my projects where lead is not an issue. I think you will like this solder. Buffs to a nice shine!

How and when did you get started in glass art? I saw an article about Kristin Frantzen-Orr along with a step by step example of how to do one of her famous floral beads. I talked about it so much my husband bought me a beginning torch set for the following Christmas. Once I got the kiln and the duel fuel torch, I just kept experimenting and growing from there. Kristin is still my idol and I keep telling myself that one day I will do nice, clean floral beads like hers. Your jewelry, vases, plates etc. are all beautiful. I especially love the geologic nature of your Copper Reactive dish, its so unique. Can you tell us a little about how you achieved that look? The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks

We tell ourselves not to judge a book by its cover, but the simple truth is, we are attracted to whats attractive. On a recent hunt for a birthday present for my mother, I came across several beautiful handbags in several different boutiques. What ultimately influenced my final purchase decision was the complimentary gift-wrapping offered by one of the storeowners. The handbag itself wasnt any prettier or better quality than the others I was considering, but the packaging was beautiful. Brightly colored tissue, a big sturdy box, quality wrapping paper and an oversized hand-tied bow. No, it wasnt sealed with a kiss, rather a large gold embossed sticker with the boutique name and logo (theres nothing wrong with a little discreet self-promotion). Here are a few tips for better packaging-it might just buy you your next customer. 1. Show your customers what theyll get. The boutique I mentioned earlier had

Delphi merchandiser Kayleigh McGrath recently shared some photos from her early days at Delphi. She was playing around with different colors and textures of glass and learning the hard way that there are limits to what you can do (and cant do) in fusing. The first image shows what happened when Kayleigh layered dichroic glass, coating to coating. The base is 90 COE dichroic rainbow pixi stix on black, (Delphi item 921714) and the top is an old texture we dont carry any more (cyan red radium on clear.) The second image is of a piece Kayleigh loved so much she impatiently removed it from the kiln when it was still too hot (havent we all done this. ) As you can see, it suffered thermal shock. This was made with the same 90 COE pixi stix on black for the base and capped with Delphi item U630090 90 COE
