Thin fire shelf paper, May 21, 2021 5 stars
Pros
Easy to use
Cons
Needs HEPA vacuum to cleen up

This paper is so much easier to use than shelf primer. It does turn to dust after firing. I use a HEPA filtered vacuum to clean up so I don’t breathe particles

Bullseye GlasTac Gel Fusing Adhesive - 4 oz

Item# B8268
Glad tac Gel, May 21, 2021 5 stars
Pros
Stays in place, burns clean
Cons
Goes on thick Mild adhesion
Other Thoughts
I like the gel because it tends to not run. It is sometime hard to control how thick so I tend to use tweezers and dip my smaller pieces in it. The adhesion is low, so it is easy to have pieces sometime pop off if you bump them

Toyo Pistol-Grip Supercutter

Item# 5100
Toyo Pistol Cutter, May 21, 2021 4 stars
Pros
Easy grip
Cons
Doesn’t always cut evenly
Other Thoughts
I sometimes have trouble getting an even cut with this grip. I have to make sure I am standing over the piece to get even pressure when starting my cut, or it won’t score properly. It does make it easy for someone like me with arthritis to hold.

Square Slump Molld, May 21, 2021 5 stars
Pros

Other Thoughts
This mold gives a slight gentle curve to a plate. If you want something deep, use a deeper mold. Good for a soap dish.
Glassline Pen - Black

Glassline Pen - Black

Item# 802002
Glassline Black, May 21, 2021 4 stars
Pros
Good for lettering
Cons
Easily smears
Other Thoughts
I use a detail bottle with a metal tip to do lettering on my glass pieces. This product is very runny, so it can take several tries to get even lines. I fire at 1480. It has a slight mat finish, but that’s ok with me.
