Glass Care & Hanging Tips

Glass Care

  • Solder will oxidize over time, darkening and occasionally developing a crust along the lead lines. If you see this “crust” appearing on your lead lines, you may want to wipe it (dry) with the rough side of a sponge if its on silver colored solder or brush lightly with a toothbrush. (not your personal one) Try to avoid the glass because it may scratch. All other cleaning should be done with a cotton cloth, paper towel or microfiber towel.

How to Hang

  • It’s best to hang your piece from a sturdy hook, nail or latch screwed into the window frame or wall.
  • Suction cups frequently fail! I do not recommend using them. Use at your own risk and check them often. 
  • I have also used 3M hooks attached to the window frame. If you choose to use them, please follow the weigh and hanging instructions on the package. These will also need to be checked and replaced over time. 

I include a paraffin dipped twine on most pieces. It can easily be cut off and replaced if the length isn't sufficient. I recommend sourcing hanging materials from your local hardware store, chain is a good option for heavier pieces. String and fishing line break down over time and will need to be replaced but can still be used.
