Classic lead-bearing, solid core solder for stained glass work.
Canfield brand is the choice of professionals, Their smooth-melting alloys yield quality results with less effort than economy brands, and they take patinas extremely well.
Victory 60/40 is a great mid-range solder, offering quality melting and flow at a lower price point than the Canfield brand. Also solders zinc and copper efficiently with minimal working.
Amerway brand is an excellent choice when an economy solder is desired. A good option when a premium solder is not necessary.
60/40 (60% tin/ 40% lead): Used for lead came work and for copper foil. Our favorite go-to blend for most types of stained glass soldering.
50/50 (50% tin/ 50% lead): Preferred by some artists for copper foil work. The higher lead content holds heat longer, allowing a little more time for your bead to settle into a nice rounded shape. We do not recommend 50/50 for lead came work.
