Stained glass repair- step 1

I have a stained glass panel that had a crack in one piece and I will show how it was repaired.

This is the panel standing 50 inches tall by 32 inches wide.  in the lower right hand corner a green piece had a crack in it.

Repairs can be very extensive because a lot of times you have to remove good pieces to get to the broken piece.  This one will not be too bad.

The first thing to do is cut through the solder joints joining the lead came from the outer bar, doing both front and back sides.  Also, you have to remove the outer bar that is joining the affected area, in this case I had to remove the lower right hand side outer bar from the bottom of the fingers to the bottom of the panel.
