This NEW reprint of the classic step-by-step stained glass manual was first published thirty years ago! Revised with the latest information, over 200 photos, and full size patterns for 17 projects in both copper foil and lead came. Chapters include glass cutting, working with patterns, fabricating a leaded panel, constructing boxes, and much more. 70 pg.

Glass Making - Modern glass making is an extremely refined process. Glass is made basically from silica sand, limestone and soda ash. The mixture is put into a glass furnace and heated to approximately 3000 degrees F, until the raw materials melt into a liquid which can be formed into glass sheets. To color the glass, various metal oxides are added to the raw materials during the glass making operation. These include selenium or gold for red, yellow and pink; cobalt for blue and sulphur for amber. The final price of the glass is most evident when purchasing hot colors (red, yellow, orange, pink) as gold and selenium are expensive ingredients.
