Foiling Curves, April 16, 2015 5 stars
Pros
Great Product. Blends very well with Black Patina and darker colored glass in projects.
Cons
Must clean thoroughly to get residue off the glass after soldering.
Other Thoughts
This is a great product! I just thought I'd share a tip about foiling on inside curves. I am a stained glass beginner and when I was foiling inside curves the foil would always tear which created a break in the solder line. I got some advice and this may seem old news to the experts but I didn't know about it. Run your finger up and down the inside curve to heat up the foil and it will curve down without breaking. Makes for a much better solder line.
