Wasser Wind Pack - 90 COE

Wasser Wind Pack - 90 COE

Item# WGP104
Love this glass, October 28, 2009 5 stars
Pros
If you have never fused with Wasser glass you are missing a real treat. After fusing the glass it is so much more vibrant than it looks before. This size is nice for small plate or bowl with solid border. Fuse over clear for more durability.
Cons
none
Other Thoughts
plan to make vase and frame.

Plan to try using it with other transparent glass to see how it comes out.

The best bead book!, January 10, 2009 5 stars
Pros
This is the best book on bead making. After basic instructions, beads made using special techniques are picture and then instructions are given to use that technique. Read the book, follow the directions, and practice, practice, practice.
Cons
None.
Other Thoughts
If you are a self-learner, the book will give you all the info you need. If you take a class, then this book will expand your expertise at your own pace.

This saw is great!, January 10, 2009 5 stars
Pros
This saw has the flexibility to cut designs from glass and with a change of blades can slice murrini. I can't imagine how I would slice murrini without this saw.
Cons
It's loud.
Other Thoughts
The video that comes with the saw is great. The saw does not do any damage to your hands if you touch the blade.
