Hummingbird

Hummingbird 

This is a small panel of a hummingbird made with Youghiogheny glass, these are all the pieces cut. I prefer to cut all the pieces before I start foiling as it provides some room for further slight adjustment should it be required.

Once all the pieces are foiled they are then flat soldered using 50/50 enabling me to remove the template. I then attach the perimeter lead and bead solder the piece using 60/40. The finish patina is then applied and a final polish completes the project.
