Clematis foil and solder
I am now starting to foil the pieces, I do this by removing them one at a time and then replacing them as I proceed. I find this method works very well as you are able to make minor adjustments as you work across the panel.
Here is the panel with all of the foiling complete and I will now proceed with the first soldering. Once this has been completed the template can be removed and the first solder can be repeated on the reverse side. It is important to be very careful with the panel during these stages.
First soldering completed on both sides and the perimeter lead added, you can see the two pieces of black tape securing it to the panel until it is soldered into place.
The final bead solder can now be added to finish the panel. Bead soldering completed and patina added and you can clearly see the difference the bead solder makes to the panel, gives it a nice finish.
