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.

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.
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
