I know I promised a tip for setting your running pliers this week but we're holding that off until next week because of Cheryl's Mr Bingle window and the example I can make with it. Cheryl has worked long and hard on this massive (over 3 foot wide) window and finally her 20 week journey has come to an end. Mr Bingle looks amazing and even I was surprised at how sturdy he was after he had been completely soldered. It's amazing what quarter inch foil and a roll of Strong Line can do to help shore up a window. But it's Mr Bingle's fused face that makes this window shine simply because the face remains intact without numerous breaks throughout it. That said, as much 'fun' as this has been for her, Cheryl is looking for smaller projects to make after completing this one.
Bee finished grinding the rest of her dove and then got busy foiling all of those nice, white feathers. If you click on the image you can easily see how the backing of the foil actually influences the color of the white glass (in the larger image). I like the effect of the copper on the white but there are times when I want a difference between similar whites within the same window and I will use silver backed foil. This sounds like it could become a tip in the very near future.
