Yay now it's in the window.
OMGosh! A stain-glass clone trooper? Pure awesomeness! I'm gonna have to get into stain glass now
if you don't mind me asking (i'm doing some stained glass myself) this piece is leaded, correct? I've only ever done foiling, but as i understand it, that method wouldn't work in a piece this size, not stable enough
Yes it uses lead, a lot of it, but a lot of the finer smaller parts that needed to be viewable used a smaller sized foil. Lead has a prominent lip on both sides so it makes small pieces hard to see. I started using it on a lot of panels because it's easy to use and looks sooooooo much nicer than sauldering foil. Unfortunately combining foil and lead can cause uneveness if you don't raise a piece with something. The side inside the lead will be higher than the side of the piece that just has foil on it because it isn't raised slightly like the lead does.
Thank you for explaining ^^ much appreciated! I have a big project I'd like to do and was wondering about using lead. The idea of still being able to do soldering, as long as a I compensate for the height, makes that a much more feasible idea
lol wow thats awesome!
so, how much would you charge for one of these?
Sorry I haven't replied sooner, totally haven't checked here in a while haha. For this piece, or the Kirk, I'm trying to get like $200-$300 out of them.
i love it!
YES! Erm, sorry, but this is so awesome I can barely contain my excitement. You've adapted the trooper's form and features perfectly to the stained window style and technique. I love this!
