Pros : The nice thing about dicro slide is that un-like etching or removing dicro coating from glass to make shapes stand out, there is no dicro wasted. I've regularly used shaped punches (like hole punches) to make fun shapes or patterns and then used the left over bits from around the punched out shapes to make confetti Some of the negative space shapes are more fun than the punched ones ;) Best part is being able to combine multi colors of dicro in one project. Other Bonuses: It's easier to carry with me between home and shop, I can put it on any color glass I want (on white frequently works well)
Cons : The dicro can sometimes come off the film, I've had it both left on the paper, and come off in the water. If the slide is older or even stored imperfectly, this is much more common. Some colors are more sensitive to over-firing/re-firing than others and while some colors are just as brilliant as regular coated glass dicro, others seem to be less intense, and more see thru. Slide often doesn't work well capped to start with, so I've tried tack firing it on, then capping to do my full fuse but sometimes the image distorts doing that.
Other Thoughts : I wish the squares were longer, I get they use small samples so you can see the color, but I like using it as edging,and this makes for more cutting and piecing.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
