Copper Foil Overlay, Done Right | 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Copper Foil Overlay is a great way to complete a detailed project in a short amount of time. It can be done on regular glass or a beautifully formed piece of head glass. Whichever glass you choose, doing it the correct way is important. Our tips and tricks will assure you a successful project completed directly on your glass surface resulting in a piece that has a quality look and feel.
You may have seen videos on how to do overlays on an alternate surface, then transferred and glued to your glass. The transfer method is NOT the technique we teach or recommend. Customers who have tried the transfer method and seen the direct method we teach are much happier with the final product.
