Feb-Faking A Repair

Last month we showed how to make a simple one piece repair. This month, I want to show an even easier repair, which deals with illusion.

This type of repair only works when you can easy cover a crack in the design. We do this by covering the crack with copper foil and soldering over the foil. We do this on both sides of the glass, thereby creating the illusion of a lead line.

The design to the left is the design we're going to demonstrate with. This panel had a weakness in the design and the side glass was cracked when the glass was being encased in tempered glass.
