Booklist Review

This book reads like the print version of a television show, with clear and bright visuals, easy-to-follow directions, and a crisp narrative about supplies, equipment, and successful tips. Artist Payne has specialized in promoting this medium on television, and her instructions, plus the 25 half-day projects, will appeal to anyone, even those without soldering experience. Beginning chapters concentrate on pictures and brief descriptions for different sets of tools and supplies, such as opalescent and cathedral glass; glass-cutting, breaking, and smoothing tools; soldering and pattern-making supplies; and safety gear. The projects are kicked off with the same attention to detail--oversize photographs illustrating the step-by-step directions for a tulip panel, followed by boxes, clocks, ornaments, window accents, candleholders, and a host of well-designed decorative accessories. Metric conversion chart included. --Barbara Jacobs
