Dolphin & Manatee windows are soldered

As of this afternoon, both windows have been framed with a stabilizing zinc channel.  The fronts and backs have been soldered.  Following the soldering, the flux and bits of excess solder were carefully washed off with warm water, a brush, Comet, and rubber gloves.

The sky area, as mentioned before, is non-transparent, clear glue chip glass.  The tan color seen here is the homasote board showing through.

It is my goal to work toward completing my clients' windows quickly and well.  But it is bittersweet when they get to this stage.  All that needs to be done now is the patina-ing, the rinsing, the waxing, and the wood framing.  My husband will then install them in my clients' home.

Tomorrow, I will post the first photos of the finished windows in the sunlight, along with their original computer-generated renditions.
