I came across a book on decorative soldering entitled Solder Magic Book: Instructions and Patterns by Kay Bain Weiner that sounded interesting.
I looked the book up on Amazon and I found it has two reviews: one review rated it two out of five stars and the other rated it five out of five stars. Neither review was very helpful. the 2-star review just said that there wasn’t much information in the book and you could find it all online, while the 5-star review was just a quote right out of the introduction to the book. (You can read the same thing when you use Amazon’s “search inside” tool.) This didn’t seem very promising, however, the author was just named recipient of the 2006 Art Glass Association Lifetime Achievement Award. Hopefully, that says something for her abilities as a teacher.
Ms. Weiner has written several other how-to books on art glass techniques. For more information see her website. http://kaybainweiner.com/KBW/
