GET THE LEAD OUT
With Tommy Giambusso (Tommy G)

The Copper Foil Method seems to be the only method anybody teaches.  Finding a good resource for Lead Came instruction has been next to impossible ... until now.

GET THE LEAD OUT is an 80 minute workshop on lead came technique.  Tommy covers:

  • selecting the right came
  • proper tools
  • setting up properly
  • soldering
  • puttying (cementing)
  • framing the finished panel
  • and more

Too many instructors and "how to" books gloss over this important aspect of stained glass, but not Tommy G.  You'll get everything you need to know demonstrated in full color.

Order #29302-D for DVD Format $24.95

Tommy G has probably taught more people the lead came technique than any other instructor.  Tommy has had a long career in stained glass and owns Manhattan Stained Glass, the only supply shop in Manhattan.  Tommy specializes in restoration work as well as creating new works of art.  Catch Tommy at Glass Craft Expo where he presents in person workshops on the leaded technique.
