Youghiogheny Green and White Stipple, September 19, 2020 5 stars
Pros
This glass is truly beautiful! In the light, it creates a multitude of shimmering effects as if one is looking at green foliage with the sun’s light creating dapples of light reflections on the leaves. The color is predominately green, with splashes of white and a golden amber hue - Perfect for creating springtime leaves.

Thinfire Paper, September 19, 2020 5 stars
Pros
I use this paper when painting enamels on stained glass. I find that it can hold up to numerous firings and always keeps my work safe from kiln shelf issues. The paper also cuts well, which allows for sizing the paper to the projects and thus - less waste.
Cons
None
Other Thoughts
One really big advantage with this paper is that it allows your kiln fired pieces to expand and contract freely without getting caught on the bottom surface.

Amazingly beautiful glass! The deep reds seem to sparkle from within. This glass, like many of the Youghiogheny line, comes “alive” with the ever changing sunlight that penetrates its colors.

This glass is so beautiful, I almost hate to cut into it.

Pink & White Herringbone Ripple, January 16, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Beautiful Rippled Glass- The tones of pink and the various levels of transparency give this glass a life of its own. I’ve used this pink rippled glass to create flower petals. The ripples, when illuminated, take on the effect of actual folds and depressions of a real flower petal.
Cons
None
Other Thoughts
Pre-plan with your template to take advantage of the direction of the texture of the glass!

Wissmach Sky Blue Iridized, January 11, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Beautiful Glass – If you’re looking for that “Tiffany” type look for your work, this glass offers it. The variations of blue along with the light surface iridescence give this glass a rich lustrous effect. I’ve used this glass to simulate sky. Original Tiffany windows seem to have an internal glow – For me, this glass comes close to creating that same effect.

Uroboros white granite herringbone ripple

White Granite Ripple, January 11, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Fantastic Rippled Glass – The ripple texture of this glass allows light to travel though it on various levels – creating a sparkle effect. I used this glass to create angel wings. The texture helped to simulate the texture of the wings and the ever changing light transmission gave the wings an almost celestial effect.
