What steps are involved in framing stained glass?

I've created a small stained glass piece of art, and would like to frame it. How do I do this?

You can purchase zinc frames at the hardware store, make sure you have the measurements. It is easy to fit with the right measurements

Get a frame, and some little plastic widgits that you can screw to the wood to hold the piece. Your local glass supply shop should carry them.

You should use a zinc frame, because it will be sturdy enough, as well as look nice. To do this measure all sides of your project, use a fine tooth hack saw and cut the pieces of zinc, insert the glass into the channels inside of the zinc strips, voilĂ !

Purchase a frame that fits the size of your art. Frames can be ordered in any size from a framing shop; most shops will insert your art for no extra charge. To insert the glass yourself use glazier points or staples to hold the art in the frame.
