Economy Shelf Paper - 41 x 82 Roll

Economy Shelf Paper - 41" x 82" Roll

Item# 7079
Problem with visible mark, February 19, 2013 2 stars
Pros
Less expensive and great with opal glasses
Cons
Shrinks! I can see a jagged line on the back of the glass where the paper has shrunk in the ramp up and the glass has filled in the crack.
Other Thoughts
I bought this paper before and did not have this problem with the back of the glass having a visible "cracking" look. It is a soft edge on the back of the glass but is clearly visible when using transparent glasses.

Too Much Loss, November 14, 2011 2 stars
Pros
Good price.
Cons
I bought four sheets and got so much loss due to round edges that I actually wound up getting a total square footage of three.
Royal Gold - 90 COE

Royal Gold - 90 COE

Item# R5561
dissapears, January 26, 2010 1 stars
Pros
none
Cons
Ground glass edge before firing and gold washed off during cleaning. After cutting again and carefully wiping glass clean, I fired at 1425 to make tiles. Out of 16, only 1 came out with the gold actually staying visible. Lost cost of glass and firing with unsatisfactory results.
Other Thoughts
i would not spend the money on this item.
