Stained Glass Starter Kit

I am working on developing a stained glass unit with my advanced art students. I plan to ask the artist Betti L. to come do a demonstration and be a visiting artist for a period in my classroom.

You will need glass scorers, running pliers, glass grinders, grossing pliers, copper foil or lead cane (I recommend the copper foil) soldering irons and 60/40 solder. Also safety glasses, stained glass, and lots of band-aids.

  • Gryphon Gryphette Grinder
  • Studio 100-watt soldering iron with built in temperature control
  • 8 piece Kokomo French Cobblestone glass pack about 8″ x 8″ ea.

  • Breaker/grozer pliers
  • Running pliers
