Wood, Brass & Glass's Profile


Bio

Wood, Brass & Glass was created in 1972 when Frank & Marge began creating holiday gifts for family and friends. They began glass fusing in 1985 after a trip to Washington, DC. Each year brings new opportunities to create hand crafted treasures.

Can use just one layer when creating fused glass items.
Cons
Does not fire very well in my kiln. Often leave sharp edges.
Other Thoughts
Best for kilns with better heat control.

Diamond File Set, October 3, 2013 4 stars
Pros
Very useful and versitile tools.
Cons
No instructions were included, but I assume you use these files wet.
Other Thoughts
I store these in a small container with the handles pointing down. Lets them dry & easy to select the one needed.

Kraftyblock Image Art, July 25, 2013 5 stars
Pros
This works very well with your color laser printer. After the decal is baked, it is quite permanent. Can reproduce even fine details.
Cons
Waste would be my biggest concern.
Other Thoughts
Fun to be able to reproduce in color.
