Copper Tape Stained Glass technique

Cutting the glass may be a little more difficult on this project, unless you have chosen an easy pattern with a lot of straight lines, which is not a bad idea for your first one.

Here is an example of a project with straight lines.

Notice the way the pattern flows in the project. There is symmetry which is important in this piece.

In the project that I’m sharing with you now there are a lot of curved lines which have to fit into the second drawing.

You can see how the drawing has been numbered and how the cut glass fits into that puzzle.

Continue to cut the glass until all the pieces fit into the drawing. You will find that a grinder or a wet saw with a glass blade will be helpful when you don’t get a perfect cut with the glass cutter.
