Product Description

A distinctive solder that adds a rich, luxurious finish to all of your stained glass art. Lead-free and nontoxic, it is ideal on jewelry, boxes, art pieces, or any elegant piece you are creating. SILVERGLEEM has instant freeze. It makes perfect beaded or sculpted pattern seams. Leave it in its beautiful natural silver color or buff it to a high sheen. Melts at 430°F and flows like 50/50. Lead-free solder has a higher melting temperature, which may require a higher temperature tip or rheostat, depending on your iron. A separate soldering iron tip is recommended to keep your project lead free. Sold in a convenient 1/2 lb. spool.

Delphi Tip: Lead-Free Solder should be used when making projects where your skin comes in contact with it, such as jewelry, boxes and kaleidoscopes.

Pros : Lead free.
Cons : My gripe with this solder is that you read all over in literature, books and the web how great this solder is in terms of shine, flow, etc. I find that it flows poorly, does NOT shine and does not take Novacon patina as well as I would like it to. Also, that it has silver in it is questionable being that silver melts at 1763F. Maybe it does have silver. I have never found any literature stating that it does contain silver as in real silver. I have used other brands with far better results. I have used much less expensive with the same results. In short I bought this for the shine and it never shined for me.
Other Thoughts : I do not think I will ever buy this again, unless I find a way to make it shine. Polish does not help.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
