Starry Night copper foiled

After 7 hours and 29 yards of copper foil, the window is now ready for soldering.  To get to this point, each of the 200+ pieces of glass were removed one at a time and wrapped with 7/32" adhesive copper foil tape.  The tape was applied directly in the center of the edge of each piece of glass so that the overlap on the front and back is consistent.  Then the tape was burnished to further secure it to the glass. After foiling, each piece was returned to its place in the "glass jigsaw puzzle".  (Click on photo to enlarge, use back arrow to return).
