Decorative soldering is a great way to add interest to any panel or to create those elements that may be difficult otherwise such as thorns on a rose. We will cover the techniques to accomplish 9 different techniques. Students need to bring a board to work on in class. To make the board the student will need to cut 7 pieces of any glass to the size of about 1.5” x 8”. Foil all around each piece and solder them together side by side. Do a flat solder seam on one side and a beaded solder seam on the other side. Add a piece of zinc on one end for stability of the piece.
Prerequisite: Foil Method
- Students need to bring their soldering equipment, flux, and solder
- The solder board already made and ready to go.
- If the student has two irons, one for lead method and one for foil method, bring both irons.
- Bring a sharpie to write on the glass the name of the soldering technique.
This is a 1 day class, 2 hours or less.
