How to Handle Your Old Lead Came

How-To
Even the savviest glass artist will often find random bits of lead came around their studio. Some can be used in new glass art pieces but others are simply unusable. When you have unwanted scrap came, there comes a time when you’ve got to dispose of it.   But lead is a heavy metal. Throwing it into your garbage can create a dangerous situation. In certain exposure levels, lead can be poisonous to people and animals too. Lead poisoning can lead to severe symptoms that damage the nervous system and even cause blood or brain disorders.   If this sounds scary, that’s because it is. So many people throw old batteries and other items into their trash without a second thought. At Delphi Glass, we urge you to do the responsible thing for lead came scraps and dispose of them properly, not just for your health but also for the health of others around you.   When lead came makes its way to your local landfill, it can penetrate the ground and into groundwater, tainting the water supply.

@ There are several approaches to installing glass art into cabinet doors, but most frequently the doors are designed with a routered channel on the reverse to fit the glass art. Stained glass panels should be finished with a soldered or came border, then inserted into the opening and secured. Methods for securing the panel can include using clear silicone adhesive, which will prevent panels from rattling, but makes it difficult to remove and change panels later, or using retaining buttons or cabinet door clips which are affixed to the wood door with a screw and press the panel into the frame gently. These hardware options are available at Delphi, and should be positioned around the border of the frame so it captures your art from all edges.

Even if you don't think you will never decorate wine bottles, if you are in the market for a sand carve system, this is a great class to get to try it, get a lot of information and have a fun result at the end. I hope Liz will be back soon to teach a class on the making of the masks.
