2 oz Rainbow Dichroic Coarse Frit on Black - 90 COE

2 oz Rainbow Dichroic Coarse Frit on Black - 90 COE

Item# BFRB1
Love this product, September 25, 2013 5 stars
Pros
Nice size pieces, with a variety of colors and textured dichroic.
Cons
Although various colors there seems to be more copper/orange than others.
Other Thoughts
For cabochons - if arranged and fired correctly they look like opals in glass - really spectacular. Also be careful of your firing schedule as you can flatten the frit pieces and lose the effect.

Item# FW8413
Only some confetti, May 7, 2013 3 stars
Pros
Great color and with the discount value for money

One container was not sealed properly so lots of spillage. Also many "confetti" pieces were not confetti but over 1-2mm thick.

Although the glue pad is large so is the top section of the bails making them too big to use for most pendants.

Expensive Lesson, November 27, 2011 1 stars
Pros
Nice and thin.
Cons
After fitting (adjusted a few times) it snapped within the first 10 secs of use - probably had a weak spot.
Other Thoughts
Very expensive lesson. Will stick to the standard blade.
Pre-Cut Clear Ovals 8 Pack - 90 COE

Pre-Cut Clear Ovals 8 Pack - 90 COE

Item# 24687
Pre-Cut Clear Ovals, October 20, 2011 4 stars
Pros
Perfectly cut.
Cons
Thin glass used. I thought these would be ideal for the pre-cut dichroic ovals of same size but the result was anything but good. I had to cut my own shapes from thicker glass and re-fuse.
Other Thoughts
Should be made of thicker glass and slightly larger than the pre-cut dichroic ovals.
Far Out Ovals on Thin Black - 90 COE

Far Out Ovals on Thin Black - 90 COE

Item# 24637
Pre-cut ovals, September 9, 2011 4 stars
Pros
Each piece is similar in color but different patterns - fires great
Cons
Some pieces had chipped edged which needed to be ground before fusing
Other Thoughts
All pieces should be checked before shipping to ensure they are of high quality or sold as seconds
