Professional Touch, December 6, 2010 5 stars
Pros
Circles are now very easy and come out perfect. I was amazed. The straight lines are easy to repeat over and over again.
Cons
You have to be careful to hold the circle base firmly in place, or it could slip and ruin the score line.
Other Thoughts
Requires a few clamps and a board of wood/mdf of the appropriate size in order to use the tool for straight strip cuts.

Easy to use, December 6, 2010 5 stars
Pros
My first time using a patina. It is easy to use and apply. The change is instant. Cleanup was easy and it did not stain the glass.
Cons
Very fluid and spills over the work area if you are not careful.

Decent, November 19, 2010 4 stars
Pros
Works just fine.
Cons
The silver lined foil's adhesive is less strong than the normal Studio Pro copper foil, so it requires a slower hand to properly pinch and make it stick to the glass.
