I'm learning the art (or is it a craft?) of stained glass. At this weblog, I record progress, note useful links, and document flesh wounds.

October 20, 2002: Better Living through Chemistry
Apparently there are specialized chemicals produced to solve the specific problems I mentioned with grinding glass pieces that have paper templates glued to them, and also with the grinding process washing away marks on glass or templates.
There's something called Mark Stay that's said to do just what its name says. And Warner-Crivellaro sells a spray adhesive that, according to their print catalog, is water-resistant.
None of this will be a help to me in my current project, since all the pieces are glued and marked etc., but these things are worth a try, maybe.
