Pros : The book is good, and the individual components are good individually. However -- the book recommends 1/32" shelf paper, but the kit includes 1/8", which is tricky to wrap and cracks just as the book says. The included medium/large mandrel is supposed to fit 6-8" wrists, but my mandrel has a circumference of 6 1/2" -- too large for me, so I had to buy the small one separately. The tongs needed some tweaking, they had to be re-shaped to the proper angle, and the graphite pads needed tightening (mid-bend, unfortunately). Now that these problems are solved, and I've got all the bits I need, I am confident that I can start making some good bracelets. And it is fun.
Cons : No real cons, just some frustrating delays and extra money outlays.
Other Thoughts : Check all the components before you get started, and measure everything -- you may have to make some adjustments or buy some other parts.
Pros : The kit comes with everything you need as long as you already have a kiln and really good hot gloves. The book is VERY informative.
Cons : The glass pack that comes with it is not marked, so you can't re-order glass that worked well.
Other Thoughts : Make sure you have very good hot gloves. Watch your kiln like a hawk when it gets close to slumping. Only make one at a time- the glass cools too quickly to get both formed without re-heating.
How do you apply kiln wash to a shelf? Mix up kiln wash according to the manufacturers instructions. Most recipes consist of one part kiln wash to four or five parts water by volume. Brush the kiln wash onto the kiln shelf using a haik brush; this allows the kiln wash to go on more smoothly. At least four coats of kiln wash should be applied to the shelf, with each coat brushed on in a different direction (side to side, top to bottom, and diagonally in two directions). Also stir up the kiln wash between coats because the kiln wash can settle quickly in the bottom of your container. Once you have applied all of your coats, allow the shelf to air dry for a day. Otherwise, you can speed up the drying process by placing the kiln shelf in your kiln, heating up the kiln to 500 F,
