Stained Glass Soldering Techniques – The Key to Smooth Soldering
What REALLY makes a smooth solder seam?
You all know that lumpy solder seam feeling. You try and TRY to improve your stained glass soldering techniques but STILL you can’t get a nice smooth finish.
Well I have a secret for you.
It’s a tiny but crucial tip – taken from my Stained Glass Made Perfect Course – that will improve your stained glass soldering techniques and help you get over the hump and start producing smooth, even seams to be proud of.
You’ll see that it isn’t a question of speed, or the right flux or the correct solder – although these things help.
It’s all about controlling the heat of the solder with the angle of the soldering iron tip.
Stained Glass Soldering Techniques
Have a look at the Video Tip below and give it a go yourself. Play around with the angle of the tip. Try it flat, try the corner, try the side.
- You’ll start to get a feel for how the solder behaves differently.
- You’ll start to get more of an idea how much heat is transferred to the solder with the different angles.
- You’ll start to get control of your soldering iron.
And with that control comes smooth, even solder seams.
You might not have instant success but if you keep at it I can guarantee that your stained glass soldering techniques will improve.
