Answer
I apologize  for the delay in the response. Covered up with commission work. Hard to find time to respond to this and other inquiries.

If I understand your question, you are wanting to know if the soldering techniques for stained glass are usable for other types of glass.

Glass is glass. It doesn't matter if it is colored glass in its varying thicknesses and textures or just plain old window glass. The soldering process is the same. There is nothing to differentiate between types of glass.

So, go for it.

If this does not adequately answer your question, respond with a more complete set of circumstances with which your are concerned. Please be as specific as possible so that I can better answer the question.
