Bio

After years of experimenting and trying different forms of art, I took a stained glass class and fell in love. Glass became my chosen media --- stained glass, experimental bead making, adventures with mosaics, and ultimately kiln-formed glass. Dichroic glass is amazing! The possibilities are endless. I am a self-taught glass artist with the exception of some glass workshops. Meeting and learning from people like Vicki Payne, Newy Fagan, Joe Porcelli, Linda Steider and Peter McGrain has provided some unforgettable learning adventures. I made my very first glass bead with the help of Cindy Jenkins! I am blessed and grateful to be able to say that people all over the United States and the world have collected my glass including Australia, Canada, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.

Okay, not thrilled, January 22, 2018 3 stars
Pros
Easy to use! Pre-mixed and seem to be just the right viscosity. Most colors came out shiny in my testing.
Cons
Did not see a true red, even the Crimson wasn't "red" -- more like a darkish pink even though I fired to 1450.
Other Thoughts
I don't think I'll buy more of these but I'll keep playing and testing and maybe I'll hit the right temp to make the red RED.

Not worth the price, November 2, 2010 1 stars
Pros
I flaked it off onto glass and then fused it. Looks cool.
Cons
It falls off the copper so easily I had it all over my clothes and the floor.
Other Thoughts
Big waste of money.
