Bio

Born and mostly raised in Wisconsin, I now live in Saint Paul with a pond full of (sometimes frozen) goldfish. The dog watches over the studio from a window while I create geometric and slightly abstract ‘landscape mosaics’ crafted in traditional leaded stained glass with copper and sometimes fused elements.

very delicate, August 18, 2016 3 stars
Pros
small, pre-cut, inexpensive option for hanging small fused pieces.
Cons
too delicate for a 6x6 tile with 2-3 layers of glass to hang
Other Thoughts
at first I loved these, but as I have used them more, they are not stellar. They break off if you put any pressure on them like hanging a piece on a porch and having it twisting on a chain. As long as the piece is hanging inside and not moving around much, they work pretty well.

works perfectly - with the right printer, August 18, 2016 5 stars
Pros
easy to use, excellent print quality, easy to transfer if you slide the decal off the backer directly onto the glass.
Cons
poor directions, especially concerning the printer options and firing schedule (none actually provided)
Other Thoughts
So after testing this with copy toner from Kinkos/FedEx and Office Max (don't bother, they don't contain the iron oxide needed), the trying an inkjet MICR which would load into my printer so never printed, I bought a new laser printer. Printer: Canon Laser Printer (ImageCLASS LBP6030w) and the compatible MICR cartridge (for check printing because it contains a high percentage of iron oxide). I did find a website that mentioned that any Canon or HP laser printer would work as long as it does not have the capacity to print in color (they use HP Laserjet P2035). I have not tested the toner cartridge that came with my Canon yet. Firing Schedule: I have a Paragon CS19 and JenKen 15/6 and have used the below schedule in both. R1 at 100F, hold at 200F for 30 minutes. (vented) R2 at 200F,hold at 800F for 15 minutes. (vented) R3 at 300F, hold at 1280-1300F for 15 minutes R4 FULL, hold 960F 1 hour. R5 at 100F to 850F. R6 at 300F to 600F.

@kellig Thank you for the huge compliment! It always means more to me when someone is initially unmoved, and then changes their mind. Truly, THANK YOU!

Economy Shelf Paper - 41" x 33' Roll

OK, not great., June 2, 2009 2 stars
Pros
very economical and can cut 3 pieces per length to fit the small (13") kiln shelf.
Cons
tends to "blow up" and fold up around the edges of the glass. requires a lot of labor to clean off the bottom of the piece since the fibers stick to the glass. also leaves a fine residue even after washing the glass surface, so it sometimes requires multiple washes.
Other Thoughts
I will purchase it again since my kiln work is secondary to my stained glass work and the extra clean-up time is worth the cost savings.

Great iron!, December 23, 2008 5 stars
Pros
After switching to this iron, my productivity has doubled since it holds heat VERY well - even when soldering for hours without a break. And the tip has maintained it's tinning with following the manufacturer's recommendations...
Cons
It's easy to get your hand a little too close to the iron because the guard doesn't really have a lip that tells your fingers to "beware".
