Water Lily glass foiled

The Water Lily window has now been foiled in copper. As each piece of glass was  removed for foiling, I verified the fit of each piece.  If they are too tight, its possible that they'll crack, so I'm careful that each piece has a bit of "wiggle room" without creating a thick lead line.  A fine balance, but time well spent.

This window will have silver lead lines, so I used silver-backed copper foil. This foil will blend in with the silver lead lines, in case any can be seen through the clear pieces of glass. 

The next step is soldering, then cleaning, and framing with zinc channel ... Stay tuned ... Almost done!
