Pros : The set is great for a beginner like me. I was able to sand blast a perfect design in my glass without too much difficulty. Once I hooked this system up to a compressor instead of the canned air, it worked great! I couldn't have asked for any better.
Cons : The canned air is useless, save your money and use a compressor instead. The canned air becomes cold after just a short time (45 to 60 seconds) and then it looses pressure, you have to stop and wait for the can to get warm again before you can do anymore work. I found this infuriating! I threw the cans away and hooked the system up to a compressor instead.

First captured on film by Wilson Bentley in 1885, these hexagonal crystalline forms fall by the millions every winter covering the landscape in delicate white blankets of snow. Just like us, every snowflake that falls to earth is a one-of-a-kind form. This unique beauty has inspired art and artists for decades. Although it seems a bit odd that you would be capturing ice with fire, snowflakes make excellent glass projects. Capturing them in a medium such as glass allows you to enjoy their beauty without ever having to worry about finding your mittens, Kevlar gloves maybe, but no mittens. As a child, one of my favorite winter pastimes was cutting paper snowflakes. Just like the real thing, each snowflake I made was different and as an adult, I still enjoy this craft as much as I did when I was
National Book Lovers Day is a lesser known holiday - much to my disappointment. Its celebrated on August 9th every year. I love books. I love books so much that in my house, every day is Book Lovers Day. Im hoping youll join me in celebrating for this one day at least though. "A book is a gift you can open again and again." – Garrison Keillor "A home without books is like a room without windows." – Horace Mann Books have always held a special place in my heart. They open up a world of new possibilities to me. Each time I come back to a book, I bring fresh experiences and perspective to it, which lets me take something new away from it. Art books are no different. In addition to the bones of the process, the invaluable instruction that they present, they offer an opportunity to dream
