Stained glass art is this super cool craft where you create vibrant, colourful designs using pieces of tinted glass. It's like a jigsaw puzzle, but with light! You cut, shape, and assemble these glass pieces, and then hold them together using techniques like copper foiling or lead came.
The copper foil technique uses thin copper tape to wrap around the edges of each glass piece, making it ideal for intricate designs. On the other hand, the leaded technique uses lead came, which are strips of lead with a channel, to hold glass pieces in place. This method is great for larger, more structural works like windows. Both techniques are soldered at the joints.
Tiffany style stained glass is actually all about copper foil technique, named after its creator, Louis Comfort Tiffany. It's especially famous for its use in lamps, windows, and other decorative items.
Absolutely! You will need some basic supplies like glass sheets, a glass cutter, copper foil or lead came, solder, and a soldering iron. Safety gear like goggles and gloves are a must too!
