heating sg for foil
by: Anonymous

I too use the heating pad for the purpose of heating up the glass, after just cleaning it usually with sudsy ammonia. It is portable and when I want to sit down in the living room, I just carry it in there to keep the glass warm. I'll bet my griddle would work well too!

heat not needed
by: Anonymous

The best thing to do for foiling is to not use any cleaning product at all after grinding. Dish soap and windex usually have some oil or lubricating product in them, making it impossible to get the tape to stick. Just rinse your pieces under running water and dry with a towel. Easy.

Getting foil to stick well
by: Pat

A hair dryer works well to improve foil sticking, especially if your workshop is on the cool side. It also helps on those deep inside curves!

You can also use your hair blow dryer or the embossing heat gun that is used for other crafts.

Drying and Warming Glass For Foiling
by: Vladimir

After washing the glass, place the glass on a ceramic tile (8" X 8").
I use paint remover electric gun to dry the glass and at the same time to warm it up for foiling.

Drying Glass
by: Brad B

If you only have a couple pieces that need foiled to complete your project and you don't want to wait for them to dry after washing run a hot soldering iron around the edges quickly. Use pliers to hold the glass. Works like a charm.

Heating Pad

Laying the glass on a heating pad also works well.
