Hello,
I just wanted to share a pic of my first lead came project with you all. It's not perfect, but, I'm prety happy with it.
The frame came out of an old church and actually had clear glass with a lead cross in it. I felt it was only fitting that I should put a cross back in it. After doing this, I think I will go ahead and take a class to learn the lead came technique. I did a class a year ago in copper foil and really enjoy it! The lead windows really are beautiful though, and I gotta learn the proper way to do this. Has anyone here ever done any sort of apprentice program for a local artist? That would be a great way for me to really learn the art.
Thanks,
Dubie
