4.0 out of 5 stars Great book Dec 27 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a woodworker and decided to add some more options to my custom furniture. I did not have time to take costly courses in stained glass. This book was the easiest and best solution. The book explains all the basics of stained glass. The book demonstrates several tecqniques which gives the reader options to choose his/her comfort level.
Thanks to this book my first project was a 51 peice stained glass panel insert for a whine cabinet door.
Thanks Mrs. Payne for this wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars sde1958 Dec 27 2010
By Sherry Eidson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is the best. I had taken a class years ago and could remember the most part, just forgot the little parts. This book goes step by step. If I had never taken a class, I know I could have done any stain glass that is in the book. I looked thru a many of books to refresh my memory, but this is the best. I let my sister read it and she is ready to start cutting glass. If you are going to teach yourself or need a refresher course, this is the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Resource Dec 30 2010
By dawn_ee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I picked this book up when shopping for glass and supplies. It is a great overview of many different glass-working techniques. The language and pictures are just great. I've been working with glass for years, and really enjoyed reading through this. I appreciated the level of detail - enough to get started but not overly bogged down. I especially loved her technique for making glass boxes - very clever with great results. This would be a great gift for anyone considering trying out working with glass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginner and Intermediate. Good instructions. Sept. 7 2011
By cm4bleenmb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My husband and I took a beginner's class and have decided to add stained glass to our many hobbies. I got this book from the library to see if we would like it and after reading it, we WILL be adding this to our personal library. I do recommend that anyone not familiar with things like solder and hand tools at least try to talk to an experienced crafter or maybe try Youtube for some videos but overall, this book is definitely thorough enough to learn from.

In addition to the copper-foil and lead came instructions, she also covers "warm glass" techniques. At this point we don't plan on doing any warm glass projects but she covers it well enough that I would have no problem with using it as a guide.

Her guide to tools and tips for setting up your own work area are a great bonus and the patterns she shares are varied enough that there should be at least one project that will appeal to you. And if not, you can make them for the practice and give them away or donate them to a local charity for use as a fundraiser.

4.0 out of 5 stars Full of great information, not the best for beginners May 26 2013
By G. Burrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author assumes a pretty high level of commitment to stained glass. I saw a review here where a woman said reading this rather overwhelmed her, and I can see why. Tons of equipment, a dedicated workshop laid out for maximum efficiency... maybe you were just wanting to try out a new hobby! Still, it is a great resource for information and projects, even if you just want to try out this hobby. If you are more committed, go for it.

If you are a beginner, you must look at Basic Stained Glass Making... it takes a "sure you can!" approach, and has tons of pictures to illustrate the step-by-step creation of the projects. Have fun!
