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.
In 1979, a journey began. Thats the year Janet Schrader began working with glass, and she was immediately hooked. "Color is a very important part of who I am, so finding all the properties of changing color in glass has held my interest for many years. I love how glass changes color depending not only on the light source but also that it changes from morning to night as the light quality changes." Around 1988, Janet encountered dichroic glass for the first time, and fusing became the new focus of her glass art – launching her successful line of handmade jewelry which she sold nation-wide. Janets one-of-a-kind stained glass, jewelry and fused art have been met with enthusiasm, and winning awards including 1st and 2nd prize in the professional artist category for "Fusion/Cast/Kiln" work at the 2012 Glass Craft and Bead Expo in Las Vegas.

All Glass is Fusible. Any glass will melt in a kiln when you heat it up; fusing glass successfully depends on knowing how different glasses work together. In our never-ending quest to "Make it Easy," our Delphi Experts have compiled the following pointers to help you make your next masterpiece ... in fused glass. Coefficient of Expansion A Coefficient of Expansion (COE) is simply a measurement of the rate that glass will expand and contract when it is heated and cooled. To fuse multiple pieces of glass together, its important to use glass that is compatible. Fusible glass manufacturers test their glass to guarantee the COE (sometimes referred to as "tested-compatible"). To avoid stress-cracks and breakage, it is very important to use glass that has the same COE. The two main COEs for fusible glass are 90 and 96. The main difference between the two is that 96 is generally
