Awesome for any pumpkin or Jack-o-lanterns!, September 30, 2021 5 stars
Pros
The colors are gorgeous, wow! I am using this for Halloween kinds of things, but I will be using this to accent other projects too, will need to order more!
Cons
If you need the exact colors in the photo, an order might not match that-I was still very happy with what I received
Other Thoughts
The larger the sheet, I believe the more variation one would have to choose from. I will call to confirm before I reorder, but it has been that way for other glass sheets

Nice finish!, September 30, 2021 5 stars

Exactly what I needed for the smaller irregular shaped projects that need that edging for a polished look.
Cons
None that I can think of
Other Thoughts
This also works great for edging the bottoms of stained glass lamp shades!

good product, July 30, 2013 4 stars
Pros
This is my favorite width of foil to use for most of my stained glass. The adhesive on the foil worked well and soldering was fine, I use liquid flux. I kept the foil in a zip-lock bag until next use and the foil kept well. I have used it before with great results. Best example was when someone dropped a window I had made for them because they wanted to see if I would fix it. Although I was very sad that all my work was ruined, I noticed that all the seams with this foil held really well. None of the glass pulled out of the foil, the damage was the actual broken glass. It was quite a testament to the foil product's adhesive.
Cons
I can't think of any. The edges of the glass need to be really clean and dry before you use this product, but that is true with any product.

beautiful colors but..., October 22, 2010 3 stars
Pros
The colors are beautiful if you are going to have bright lighting behind it.
Cons
Very dark-I had planned to use it in a stained glass window, but was concerned that sections made from this would only look good on the brightest of days.

not as helpful as I'd have liked, October 22, 2010 3 stars
Pros
This book gives an excellent history of and description of the dichroic coatings and how they work on glass.
Cons
I was looking for a book that would cover the practical "how to use dichroic glass". That section in this book was pretty short.

beautiful, dark green has sparkles, December 19, 2009 4 stars
Pros
This glass is very striking & the "grain" of the glass reminds me of the grain you would have with wood. The colors are wonderful and the sparkle that comes out in the dark green after it fires makes this one of my favorites to use!
Cons
I can't think of any. I really try to keep this on hand because I use it so much.
