I'm new to stained glass.  This is my 3rd piece, the 1st 2 were practice pieces which went pretty well.  With this piece after I soldered the back side, I washed the piece to get the flux off and some of the foil came off the edge, help.  Is there a way to repair this without having to unsolder and start over? Or can I somehow just refoil that part that came off?  I've tried to post a pic but I keep getting an error that the server returned an error during upload, but thats another problem  Oo..oO

Yes, you can clean the edge so the foil will stick again and apply the new piece of foil.   You should run a bead of solder on the edge so that the foil is protected.
