Here are my pattern pieces on top of each copper foil wrapped glass piece that I cut. This is the front and back sections of the train station waiting to be soldered.
It's a bit tricky putting together a 3-D piece. Tricky? Truthfully, it's a pain in the you know what!
The roof poses the most problems putting together because of the different angles. This was several pains in the you know what!!
After it's soldered and cleaned, then you choose your patina. You can leave it silver or brush on a black patina (which I like best) or a copper patina. We'll be able to personalize them with a label maker with whatever "town" someone would want on the sign on the roof...like: Pain In The A** Junction
Here it is with the light kit in it...isn't it cute?!
Now...back to cross-stitching!
