What is hobby lead?


Hobby lead has an extremely narrow face, allowing hobbyist to put a lead finish around small glass projects like suncatchers.

Removing Glue Left on Glass From Foil
by: Brooks

Oh! the number of times that I have had to remove, refoil, and replace pieces of glass. I use black-backed foil almost exclusively. I find this glue more difficult to remove. Sometime alchol would not even touch it. I now use acetone on those tough pieces. Acetone is not the often friendly. It must be used in a well ventilated area. It evaporates quickly. put the acetone on the cloth first. After the acetone has cleaned the edge of the glass, clean the glass once again with alchol.

I have found that a complet cleaning of each piece after grinding helps the foil to stick better and making sure that while using the fid everything is stuck tight.

Using a product that we call hobby lead on the outside pieces of sun catchers and similar projects may help you protect that foiled edge.
