The 2 color-corrected lights show the true colors of your glass (unlike standard fluorescent bulbs). This invaluable tool saves you time by allowing you to see pattern lines and cut patterns right on top of the box! Large 16" x 24" plexiglas surface. Includes 1 year manufacturer warranty (bulbs excluded). Replacement bulbs #5178RB available, sold individually.
Pros : One of my first Best Purchases! From seeing the true colors in the glass to tracing patterns and marking patterns to glass, it has been a life saver. Not to mention an eyesight saver!
Cons : None
Other Thoughts : I could really use one a little bigger. I've seen them but would love to have Delphi get them in. It really gets you inspired when you see the true colors in the glass. It's like pictures jump out of the glass when you flip the light on.
Pros : I can't believe I waited so long to get this light box. I can see what I am creating out of glass now. It is a great tool for drawing and piecing my glass together. I can see the lines on the drawing to coordinate the pattern. I also paint watercolors and it is great for drawing and tracing.
Cons : None
Other Thoughts : Bigger size box for larger products would also be helpful.

Raise your hands if you are totally psyched about what is happening in today’s arts and crafts world. In true Arnold Horshack form “OOOOOOHHHHH. OOOOOOHHHHH. OOOOOOHHHHH. ” What has gotten me so excited - the rise of Mixed Media Collage. I have a confession to make, even though I work mainly in the art glass world - I am so the closet Mixed Media Collage junkie. No wonder, my love of combining tiny pieces of tesserae to create mosaics translates perfectly to combining layers of mixed media to create a similar effect. Mixed Media Collage brings so many techniques together to create wonderful masterpieces. It’s all about the layering and composition. And it teaches us so much about what looks “right” and what doesn’t. Now mind you, I said I was a junkie, not an expert. But I would like to share with you my addiction and the method to
Part 2 of a 2 part series on the basics of glass fusing. In this weeks article Donna gives advice on indispensable tools for beginner glass fusers. In the beginning, I used one larger tool, and that was a Super Star Grinder. It is still running, running, running. Others have come, and some have gone, but this one is still here. For smaller cold working projects, diamond hand pads do a nice job. The next cutting tool that I bought was a saw.
