Methods for How to Make Stained Glass
There are 2 methods for making stained glass; lead came and copper foil. Steps regarding design layout and glass cutting are basically the same. The major difference between the two methods is found in the assembly.
Lead came requires fitting the glass pieces into lead channels called cames, which is then soldered at the joints and cemented. The thick came makes it a sturdier choice for large panels and windows.
With copper foil or Tiffany method, the edges of each piece of glass are wrapped in foil then soldered together. The thinness and flexibility of foil is ideal for 3-dimensional pieces, intricate and detailed designs.
