Shown below are fun projects made with the KraftyBlok. Project images courtesy of Diamond Tech.
Pros : Very versatile for any craft. Very cool with lights inside and transparent glasses on the outside. I made a birdfeeder out of mine, by drilling holes in the bottom part of the block using a diamond hole saw and a container of water, decorated the outside with glass and copper wire and won Best Project for Any Skill Level as well as Diamond Tech Crafts Favorite in the recent Ring of Fire Artists Challenge. This was the first time I ever used this product and it ROCKS!
Cons : None I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!
Other Thoughts : A round shape with a flat bottom would be cool, something similar to a gold fish bowl.
Pros : I used iridescent transparent glass to make flower mosaic on front. Plastic insert was already cut in coin slot. Used diamond grinder to make small adjacent hole and dropped in night light. Grand-dgtr. loved this combo night-light-bank for her bedroom
Cons : Plastic insert doesn't always fit well and requires some grinding on opening. Minor problem.
Other Thoughts : Without the plastic insert, makes a beautiful vase. Would have rated a 5 but my new blocks do not have coin slot, just a small hole.
Looking to expand the scope of your bottle cutting projects? Listen up. Diamond Tech International has just created a new bottle cutter, the Generation Green™ (G2) bottle cutter. Its clever design allows users to cut anywhere along the bottle’s curved body and to cut rings of various sizes. The tool is adapted to cut almost any size glass container including wide-mouth jar and oversize wine bottles, a feature customers have been specifically asking for. And its lightweight frame allows users to cut bottles in a few quick steps. Sturdy construction and a 6-wheeled turret cutting head helps ensure long product life. The G2 can be used for creating a variety of projects, ranging from hanging pots and votive holders to glass jewelry. It earns Delphi’s title of “Earth Friendly” because it allows artists to repurpose used bottles into components for glass art. In addition, it is constructed entirely from recycled

If youre like most fusing artists, you like to try new things all the time. Pot melts – fantastic. Raking – amazing. Boiled glass – stunning. Wait....whats boiled glass? Boiled glass is the hottest new way to get a stunning organic looking design in your fused art. Each piece will be completely unique, and is effortless to achieve. 1. Select several (3-4) pieces of tested compatible fusible glass to use. Both 90 COE and System 96 work well. We recommend using strong, contrasting colors with a layer of white or clear to help keep colors bright. 2. Cut glass pieces to size. Important note Glass likes to be ¼" thick when fused. Because your project will be stacked more than ¼" thick, it will spread out during firing. Either dam the glass to prevent it from reaching the edges of your shelf, or cut glass small enough to ensure a
