This technique involves tracing or drawing a pattern onto a sheet of copper foil. Once the copper foil is affixed to the glass, the pattern is cut out with an exacto knife. The pattern is then burnished down to stop the edges from lifting. Solder is applied directly to the copper foil sheet, taking care not to crack the glass beneath due to heat build up. Once the desired texture has been reached, the solder can be cleaned and a patina is applied to accentuate the 3D nature of the stained glass piece.
