  •   Fusing Photo Paper
By on
Pros : Excellent product - easy to use. Printers may be a challenge but most of the HP lasers work great. Love the quality of the sepia.
Cons : Didn't have any any problems or see any problems if you follow instructions for printing and firing.
Other Thoughts : I do not cap - it distorts the image too much - I found if you fired then brushed or sprayed - fusemaster clearcoat overglaze - it protects the image, gives it a shine and is technically capped with a very thin layer of glass.

  •   Excellent Product
By on
Pros : Easy to use, clean and professional looking results, best product sold by the greatest supplier.
Cons : Should have a bit more detailed instruction. Use this product with plain untreated glass, any type of finish will most likely not allow the product to "take hold"
Other Thoughts : Like this product a great deal. On the first firing, use the slumping cycle. Prevents the image from burning off too fast. Then you can cap and do a full fuse. A tack fuse cycle does not work. Stay with the slumping cycle for the best results.

  •   printer
By on
Pros : If you check out the toner MSDS sheets it will tell you if it has iron oxide in it and what printers use it. I found getting a MICR toner replacement cartridge gave better images. MICR toner is used for printing checks and needs the iron oxide to be machine readable.
Cons : Capping can move parts of the image even though the image was fully fused.

  •   Fusible photos
By on
Pros : This product works exactly as described when used as instructed. It clearly tells you before you purchase that it won't work without the right type of printer.
Cons : none when used properly!
Other Thoughts : My instructions did not say that the product works well uncapped. That works best for me because you don't risk a bubble trapped at an awkward place.

  •   Love It
By on
Pros : Helped having the book 'Fusing Images on Glass'. First attempt did not work but was the printer I used. I then bought one of the printers recommended in the book. Second attempt was excellent and has been a big hit. The possibilities are endless and I can't wait to try more. Did some old photo's for my Dad's 80th Bday and he was so impressed and family members all ordered copies.
Cons : Dont soak for too long as the pictures become too hard to work with. Dont mess with the image too much try and get it right first go. Not really a con but good to know.
Other Thoughts : Let me know when you can do it in colour!!

  •   works perfectly - with the right printer
By on
Pros : easy to use, excellent print quality, easy to transfer if you slide the decal off the backer directly onto the glass.
Cons : poor directions, especially concerning the printer options and firing schedule (none actually provided)
Other Thoughts : So after testing this with copy toner from Kinkos/FedEx and Office Max (don't bother, they don't contain the iron oxide needed), the trying an inkjet MICR which would load into my printer so never printed, I bought a new laser printer. Printer: Canon Laser Printer (ImageCLASS LBP6030w) and the compatible MICR cartridge (for check printing because it contains a high percentage of iron oxide). I did find a website that mentioned that any Canon or HP laser printer would work as long as it does not have the capacity to print in color (they use HP Laserjet P2035). I have not tested the toner cartridge that came with my Canon yet. Firing Schedule: I have a Paragon CS19 and JenKen 15/6 and have used the below schedule in both. R1 at 100F, hold at 200F for 30 minutes. (vented) R2 at 200F,hold at 800F for 15 minutes. (vented) R3 at 300F, hold at 1280-1300F for 15 minutes R4 FULL, hold 960F 1 hour. R5 at 100F to 850F. R6 at 300F to 600F.

  •   Say It On Glass
By on
Pros : Bought an inexpensive Canon laser printer and it works fine for printing quotes on glass.I've done it with a regular full fuse schedule.Can get a lot of quotes on 1 sheet.
Cons : Sepia tone only. Distorted when I tried capping with clear. Can be tricky to transfer to the glass - go slowly. Let dry overnight before firing.

  •   Perfect Results on 1st Try
By on
Pros : Easy to use
Cons : Can't do color
Other Thoughts : Bought a MICR (check-printing) toner cartridge for my printer to get correct iron content. Check online to see if there is one available for your printer. Most of the newer laser printers don't have the required iron content in their regular cartridges, but the MICR cartridges need the iron to enable them to be machine-processed. Fired above tack fuse, but below full fuse. 200 deg. ramp to 1100, hold for 20 min., ramp at 500 deg. to 1325, hold for 10 min., drop to 950 and hold for an hour, then 100 deg/hr to 700 deg. Nice deep brown image on flat glass, did not cap it, will probably try fusemaster over-glaze to protect it. Slumped into a wavy dish shape at 200 deg/hr to 1000 deg. then 500 deg/hr to 1280, soak for 20 min., drop to 950 and hold for 1 hour, then 100 deg/hr to 700. Slumped perfectly and did not distort image.

  •   Takes some experimenting
By on
Pros : Great for pictures or graphics. Easy to use.
Cons : Not good for projects that need full fuse or draping. Slumping results are very good if the shapes are not too severe. Fusing above 1350°F will degrade or burn off the image. Also, the movement of liquid glass deforms the image.
Other Thoughts : The picture seems to lighten as the temperature goes up. My best results were fusing to about 1300°F-1350°F. Use only a black and white image for printing. If using a color picture, make sure it has good contrast. Use on light colored glass. When fused uncapped, the image will turn a light sepia tone. Capped, the image is more reddish or auburn. If using the HP1020 printer, set the paper setting type to "Heavy" and run 4 to 5 sheets on regular paper right before printing on the photo paper to ensure the printing temperature will "fix" properly the iron oxide to the photo paper. Take the glass temperature up slowly to about 1100°F and then soak for about 20 minutes to burn off the binder material. Then ramp the heat to a max of about 1300°F - 1350°F, depending on the kind of project being done. Have had excellent results on flat pieces and in slumping plates.

  •   Not Enough Information
By on
Pros : Could not get product to function correctly - no pros discovered :(
Cons : I read all of the material provided by Delphi on the web site and the instructions with the fusible paper. I then purchased a laser printer to use just for this reason - only to find out that the iron oxide content was too low in the toner to produce the image. After firing there was only a hint of the sepia residue and you could not even tell what the image was supposed to be. There should be more detailed information in the instructions. I have wasted time and money and I feel that it could have been avoided - I had such high hopes for this product, but was VERY disappointed!

  •   Fusing Photos on Glass
By on
Pros : N/A
Cons : N/A
Other Thoughts : I would like to point out that it is the iron oxide content in dry toner laser printers that will give the best image transfers to glass. The black toner is what 'stains' the glass turning it brown or sepia toned. Just thought this information should be included for potential purchasers of any transfer medium.

  •   Helpful Hints
By on
Pros : Potential in this medium is great. It takes quite a learning curve with firing schedules, but once you get through that, it's a lot of fun. Don't give up!
Cons : Need to copy using home laser printer. Professional copiers get too hot. Remove tissue covering you can't really see before copying. Fuse at 1300 if on glass surface; 1450 with cap.

  •   waste of money
By on
Pros : There are no pros.
Cons : I took this paper to my copy shop and it ruined three sheets by melting them in the copier. I now have seven sheets I cannot use. A waste of time and money.

  •   The possibilities are ENDLESS!!
By on
Pros : I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff!! We have used clip-art, photos, various fonts for sayings, etc... to add such a cool element to our art!! The public is LOVING the results, and so are we!!
Cons : Can't fuse with color, only fuses in sepia tone...I don't know that this is a big con, but if you are hoping for a full color photo, you are out of luck!
