Stained glass birds foiled and soldered

Here are the three birds in various stages after foiling, tack-soldering and removing the jig and the pattern from underneath.
The Cardinal is soldered, front and back ... The Blue Jay is partially soldered on the front ... the Nuthatch is soldered on the front and back and this is the back view.

The next steps are to cut and solder a thin metal channel (frame) around the perimeter of each piece, then install them over the window panes in the door.

Update:  The channel is installed on each of the birds, but I'm setting them aside in order to prepare for the fine art and craft show in two weeks.  (See blog entry above). When my work bench is quiet again, I'll return to them.
