So as I love all things glass related it has been on my to do list for a while to try my hand at stained glass using lead. Last weekend the day finally came...
I started by drawing a design taken from ideas in a number of books. The panel I was making was 8x10inches.
The process is more methodical than I expected working from the top left hand corner like a puzzle to build up your design.
Below gives you a good idea how the finished piece looks although now it has been soldered, cemented and polished.
I was very pleased with my panel. It was a great experience but not to be repeated by me anytime soon unless I get a bigger studio!!!
