small vase former, September 11, 2022 4 stars
Pros
Easy to figure out how to set it up
Cons
Making sure the kiln paper covers completely. After firing, there was what look like it had been burned, eventhough there was no glass touching the mold.
Other Thoughts
I was not happy with the final results after slumping. It looked really cool, but the glass strips melted all the way down to the kiln shelf. Fortunately, I put kiln wash on the shelf. I checked to see if I didn't use the same slumping schedule as I usually have, and I did. It ended up being a really cool piece, but not what I wanted to happen. And that was a disappointment.

I love this t-shirt! It is fun to wear and comfortable. It has my 2 favorite things, tye dye and glass.

It was funny how it was wrapped when it was delivered. You would think that there were numerous pieces of glass in the box, because of how much bubble wrap. was used.

Candle cups formy menorah, May 23, 2022 4 stars
Pros
The Hannukah candles fit perfectly in the cups. And they look great on the finished project.
Cons
I had trouble getting them attached. I used a variety of differentrecommended adhesives, and none of them worked. At the 3nd of the holiday, we have tried epoxy, we will see how that holds up next year.
Other Thoughts
If I make another menorah, I will probably not use these, instead making it flat, instead of standing up.

disappointed with the white snowflakes decals, May 9, 2022 3 stars
Pros
The decals were easy to use, and fired fine. Having practice decals and directions in the package was very helpful.
Cons
Although the decals themselves were OK, there were a lot of decals that were not full snowflakes. On the sheet, about half were unusable, because they were only half a snowflake, and some even less than that. I. Had to be very careful cutting them out, because more than once, there were pieces of a part of a snowflake stem on the decals which was ready to use. Most of the times, these were not even visual before I put them on the glass.
