Hi everybody, whilst soldering today my lead was melting more than I've ever experienced (doesn't happen often and I'm new to this) my iron is a Wellar and one I was advised to get but it doesn't have a thermostat, a too hot iron is the only reason I can think of that the lead would melt, also, I'm not holding the iron on the joint too long, it's literally a touch then off but leaves a hole in the came! Hoping you all have a remedy for me. Thanks Mairi
I want to make a stained glass trellis using a metal trellis from the lawn and garden store. I made a trial run at it and wrapped the bars with copper foil and then the glass and soldered the two together but I'm thinking there has to be a better way. Any ideas
Still new to stained glass and want to learn as much as I can!

I am wanting to put four rectangular panels together to hang as a lamp. I am planning on edging in brass came. My concern is how to hang this? I thought about soldering a brass D ringonnthe inside but I am concerned that it won't hold. Each panel will be 6x8". I plan to hang with a chain. Thank you.
I live in new Orleans and have taken classes in copper foil. I want to take a class in lead caming any suggestions?

where xan i buy stained glass tools in sweden?
Hi Betts. I just joined too, and I also live in cottage country in Ontario. I started stained glass a couple of years ago while on a holiday in Mexico, and like doing projects that are abstract designs. My main problems are finding designs and patterns. Do you do your own?
BettsFor larger projects I do design my own, sometimes if I just feel like doing something small I use patterns,usually from pattern books I have purchased.

Not sure where to start ...
I stumbled upon this site today and knew I needed to join. As a birthday gift many years ago my husband signed me up for a stained glass course. I was instantly hooked! I reside in cottage country in Ontario with my husband and two himmies.
