Does anyone know of a source for lead rosettes similar to the ones Bendheim used to carry?

I don't know what Bendheim used to carry, but I have made them myself to match the ones on repairs. It's not that hard after you do a few.

Here should be a link to a photo I took during an AGG conference workshop about casting rosettes.

http://stainedglasstownsquare.com/gallery/image/3634-lead-rosette-replication-1-photo/

It shows the originals to be duplicated in a simple, glass-sided box, the silicone mold made from them and (two) backer-boards used during casting.

Someone here will have to steer you towards the right silicone. - Tod
