Product Description

exclusive Get all the supplies you need to finish your lead came project in one convenient kit!
Kit includes 1/2 pint of black putty, 1-1/2 lbs of Whiting Powder, scrub brush, fid, 5 pair of disposable gloves and D-Lead hand soap. Achieving professional results are easy with this Delphi exclusive kit!

Black putty will give your projects a lovely antiqued finish right away while securing glass and adding support to your leaded glass projects. Use Whiting Powder to help set up the putty. This also cleans up additional putty in one easy step. If you are left with any excess putty in hard to reach places, use the point of the hook on the fid to help. Its small size makes it indispensable in stained glass work. The included D-Lead hand soap is ideal for cleaning your hands when you're done.

Delphi Tip: Cut the scrub brush in half, allowing one half to be used strictly for putty and the other for whiting powder.

Note: Product selection may vary based on availability. Photo is just one example, quality will remain the same.

Pattern and Glass Cutting When cutting glass for a leaded glass window, a 1/16" allowance must be made for the "heart" (center) of the lead came. This is normally done by using 3-bladed pattern shears for lead to cut out the pattern templates. Once you have an accurate pattern with lead allowance, cut the glass in the usual manner. Tools, Terminology and Safety "Came" is the term for the extruded lead channel used to form the framework of a stained glass window. Lead came comes in two basic shapes, each one named after the alphabet letter it looks like. "H" came is used to join two pieces of lead together; "U" came is usually used around the outer edge of a window, unless the window is to be installed into an already existing window frame.
