  •   annahitahessami Piece a piss @btmichael :) copper foilings harder I reckon! 2d
  •   btmichael @annahitahessami I think foil would be easier but definitely not as beautifully-uniform as lead. I believe touches like that give the window more value. 2d
  •   annahitahessami Well foiling dosent really lend itself to big panels so leads the way forward for longevity and strength @btmichael but you canni get the same level of detail in! 2d
  •   stationschris All of your works looks so gorgeous. I hope you don't mind if I ask a question. Which dimension of lead came should I use if I'm working with 3 mm thick glass? I was thinking of doing my first leaded window, using round H lead came, but don't know what dimension I should order I would be so grateful for some advice 1d
  •   annahitahessami @stationschris it doesn't really matter it's purely aesthetic. Unlike foiling the thickness of your glass is not an issue. You can use a variation of glass, all H section came has a 5mm channel and works for most glass thickness. The 'standard' most widely used is 6mm / 1/4" it covers well and is not too chunky. I'd go with that to start and see how you go :) 1d
  •   stationschris Thank you so much for taking your time to answer In fact, I have some lead came 6 mm (1/4")x 5 mm round, but I thought the channel was too wide for 3 mm glass. Okey, so then I can use it, great! After the putty, shall I close the wings or not? Sorry to bother you😬 1d
  •   annahitahessami @stationschris you should use a thicker edging lead unless you wish to use some hobby came in U or C section for a clean finish otherwise yes just close the flange. Once you have made the panel you should fill the gaps in the H section with cement to seal and strengthen the panel. The channel is 5mm wide to give space for cement and different thicknesses of glass. Have a look at some online tutorials it's easy peasy. Good luck and enjoy :) 24h

  •   margtor Beautiful ! Love the colours ! 7d
  •   annahitahessami Thank you @margtor :) 7d
  •   margtor Just wondering, do you have to use that cement stuff when it's outside? I'm just finishing a weathervane pig and I wrapped it with hobby came, looks sturdy and it's tacked down at all the seams , just wanted your opinion , thanks 6d
  •   annahitahessami I would say yes @margtor I always like things done properly. The cement will seal it and make the panel sturdy. I cement everything wether it's a live project or not :) 6d

  •   annahitahessami Ahh @margtor soon you can join the cut fingers crew! 1w
  •   margtor Lol, I never have no cuts ,I've been doing the copper foil method for about 10 years , but want to learn the came method , just waiting for the class to fill up. 1w
  •   annahitahessami It's the lead that ruins my fingers! @margtor 1w
  •   margtor Don't you wear gloves ?I get most of my cuts from the foil , and they really sting from the flux b/c I can't foil with gloves , oh well , and really makes them dry so they crack , 1w
  •   margtor Lol what I meant was , my fingers tips have lots of cuts , (that wasn't just bad grammar ) 1w
  •   annahitahessami No gloves I like to feel what I'm doing even if it's brutal on my hands!! @margtor you will use tallo with leading. I prefer it to liquid flux an use it for both. Even tho I'm rubbish at foiling! 1w
  •   flashformer @margtor just get latex gloves. They'll protect your hands from lead exposure, are cheap and are so thin that they won't hamper your glazing. 7d
  •   margtor Thank you @flashformer , will give it a try , 7d
