  •   GREAT FOR BEGINNERS

Pros : EVERY TOOL ADDED TO MY PRODUCTION OF SOME GREAT PIECES. HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE CEMENT
Cons : THE JOINT CEMENT (BLACK) IS...ITS JUST HORRIBLE TO LEARN WITH.
Other Thoughts : THE (BLACK) JOINT CEMENT IS A HUGE MESS WAITING TO HAPPEN. ITS AS SOLID AS A ROCK WITH ALL THE OIL RENDERED TO THE TOP. IT'S LIKE TRYING TO RETRIEVE DRIED CONCRETE. ONCE YOU DO GET THE BUCKE EMPTY...DO OT WEAR ANYTHING YOU CARE ABOUT AS IT WILL BE RUINED. ITS SOFT AND PLIABLE LITE FLIMSY SILLY PUTTY ONCE YOU WORK IT BACK TO GOOD. I USED SOME WHITING FOR MINE TO KEEP IT FROM MAKING SUCH AN INCREDIBLE MESS

Pros : Seems like a nice kit and shipping was quick but pricey. Video was semi informative.
Cons : Shippment was missing the glass pack and the black epoxy. I talked to Delphi and arrange to have the missing items shipped to me.
Other Thoughts : Make sure you have everything you ordered when you recieve your shippment.

Pros : Great value. You get a lot of bang for your buck, some of the most beautiful colors of glass, and all the tools you need to start your first project. The instructional DVD has great tips for cutting, foiling, soldering and lead came. I would recommend this package to anyone.
Cons : The DVD, although very informative, has glitches in it which seems to be common for Delphi DVD's.
Other Thoughts : Over all, I am very happy with the ultimate lead tool kit and recommend it "what a great value".

I am about to set up my new workshop. I was just wondering what you think are the most important things to include? Since every situation is different, we cant give you specific answers, but here are some things that you should give some thought to. We think that the two most important things in a workshop are safety and comfort. You obviously want everything in your workshop to be as safe as possible. Ideally, you will want to have proper ventilation, plenty of lighting, safe storage areas for glass and chemicals (do you have children?), grounded electrical connections, no extension cords, safe disposal for glass and supplies (trash cans as opposed to plastic bags), and easy to clean surfaces (no carpet on the floor). Comfort is the next most important consideration. The height of your work surface is very important. If you arent comfortable, you wont be able to

Thanks to a wide assortment of patterns, molds and instruction, its easy for hobbyists to make Tiffany style lampshades. We should mention right away that when we refer to Tiffany Style Lamps, were talking about lamps that are made on a mold (or form the terms are interchangeable). If a mold isnt needed, the lamp would be considered a Flat Panel Lamp. Making Tiffany style lamps is actually quite similar to making stained glass windows. The main difference is that after youve cut and foiled the pieces for your lamp, you solder them together on a mold, instead of on a flat surface. This is what gives the lamp its rounded shape. Most of the pieces in a Tiffany lamp need to be quite small to conform to the rounded mold. Thats why this type of shade, by its nature, has a considerable number of pieces. Most popular designs

Stained Glass Stylists of Waretown, New Jersey has become a haven for would-be artists as well as experienced artisans. Theyve been around for 14 years now, and owners Butch and Jane Gathright say theyre not going anywhere. Butch started in stained glass almost 25 years ago. There was no one to teach me how to do the craft so I became self-taught, he said. Having endured the hardships of learning on his own, he made it his mission to help others learn the craft. Over the years Ive seen many people go from having never touched a piece of glass to opening their own businesses, he said. Stained Glass Stylists offers classes in stained glass, kiln-formed glass and more. They also sell a variety of supplies in-store and online. In addition, they specialize in repairs and custom work.
