Clunky, April 9, 2014 1 stars
Pros
I can't think of any.
Cons
I used the mold twice and find the bugs to be clunky. They may be good to scatter around planters but not for any fine work.

Not good for all glass, May 10, 2012 3 stars
Pros
Nice looking and a good size.
Cons
It is hard to fit a piece of fused glass into it because it is rather shallow and the bottom is not smooth.
Other Thoughts
I recommend that you just slump a piece of thick glass to use. Get a piece with an interesting texture on black and don't cap it.

Too big, May 10, 2012 3 stars
Pros
The designs produce a good result.
Cons
The cabochons are very large for many women. The rounded surface makes cementing a bail very challenging. I finally managed with a bail plate.
Other Thoughts
I don't particularly like the cross.

So convenient, March 30, 2011 5 stars

I slump the glass, drill holes and make earrings. I also fuse them to form patterns.
Cons
Not consistent size.

2 bad batches and a lot of embarrassment, November 25, 2009 1 stars
Pros
Cannot think of any.
Cons
Does not always hold. Expensive.
Other Thoughts
I used Triolyse exclusively for 18 months. With 2 separate batches all of the bails started detaching and the backs were sticky. I ended up having to soak everything off and start again.

You need to practice, October 26, 2009 4 stars
Pros
Interesting patterns. I use it on top of dichro.
Cons
Patterns don't always transfer easily or completely. Can be tricky to use. Also needs more than the 1 minute it recommends.
