Bio

BS in Art*********** I have enjoyed art since i was a small child. My family always likes to tell everyone my first masterpieces was the arrangement of bread slices, bologna, cheese slices with mustard and mayo on my aunt's wall. I enjoy watercolor and drawing and am develop new skills in working with warm glass. I enjoy drawing and coloring with powder. I like the way glass handles. I was introduced to glass as a medium by a very dear friend who is now my mentor and teacher.

Excellent Product, April 26, 2011 5 stars
Pros
Easy to use, clean and professional looking results, best product sold by the greatest supplier.
Cons
Should have a bit more detailed instruction. Use this product with plain untreated glass, any type of finish will most likely not allow the product to "take hold"
Other Thoughts
Like this product a great deal. On the first firing, use the slumping cycle. Prevents the image from burning off too fast. Then you can cap and do a full fuse. A tack fuse cycle does not work. Stay with the slumping cycle for the best results.
