Each piece is then wrapped in copper foil and pressed tightly onto the surface. Flux is brushed on the foil then all the pieces are tacked together. 60/40 solder is used . A smooth line of solder is applied with a #8 soldering tip. The reverse side gets the some treatment. The outside edges then get flux applied and a smooth bead of solder brings the soldering to a finish except for a small loop for hanging the piece. Surfaces must be cleaned thoroughly before using patina to darken the solder, then the piece is ready for polishing. Et voila! a masterpiece!
