Stained Glass Image


Needed Materials



To create stained glass windows, several materials are needed: soldier and flux, lead came or copper foil, and framing materials like zinc or wood (pictured left).

Depending on the size of window, additional materials may be required for support and strengthening.



And of course glass is needed!

Glass comes in various colors, widths, textures, and transparencies. Manufacturers are busy creating new glass and retiring glass styles annually.

Red glass is usually the most expensive while clear glass is the least expensive.
