1/4 lb CBS Pattern Dichroic Scrap on Thin Black - 90 COE

Item# CBS6160
Dichroic scrap, January 24, 2011 5 stars
Pros
I ordered these as well as the clear and I was very impressed with the size of the scrap pieces
Cons
I wouldn't call them thin. They are your standard size for glass sheets
Other Thoughts
It's a great investment for someone who wants to experiment without a large investment. I would buy these again!

System 96 Fuse Box 20 Piece Variety Glass Pack - 96 COE

System 96 Fuse Box 20 Piece Variety Glass Pack - 96 COE

Item# XPACKB
96 Fuse box, January 10, 2011 3 stars
Pros
I liked the glass color selection. Each box had a different selection in it and only two sheets of glass were the same color.
Cons
One of the two boxes contained completely shattered pieces of glass and I'm pretty sure that it was not from the shipping since the box looked fine when it arrived, but the two packs were supposed to be taped together and the tape was broken on one side. This glass is labeled "transition" glass from Spectrum, something that is not listed in the description, not a big deal for me, but might be for someone else, since the instructions say that the color might shift.
Other Thoughts
The boxes are packed at Spectrum and not by Delphi.
Uroboros Bakers Dozen Glass Pack - 90 COE

Uroboros Bakers Dozen Glass Pack - 90 COE

Item# 90BD
Uroboros Bakers Dozen glass pack 90 COE, December 28, 2010 4 stars
Pros
I was very happy with the color representation. Had I not been familiar with the glass tile size of 6x6 inches I probably would have been hugely disappointed. This package comes directly from the Uroboros factory, so Delphi can not be criticized for the contents. I think instead of one huge jar of frit, sample packs of several frits would be more beneficial to the glass artist that wants to try this glass. I love Uroboros glass, they are at the top of my glass list. I thought the glass colors and textures were well represented.
Cons
Needs more of a variety of glass offered in this pack. I would only buy this pack at the sale price for what you get, just about 3 lbs of glass I don't think it's worth buying at the full price.
Other Thoughts
Uroboros could offer more packs with different items to help beginning artists discover what a wonderful product they truly have!

KCOLT, October 14, 2009 5 stars
Pros
This is such an awesome deal. We picked up the crate and took it right home to look. I love Kokomo glass anyway, and this was like a great Christmas present, we oohed and aahed at all the pieces. The variety was better than I expected. They also gave me extras of some colors, some up to four sheets and premium colors, but I think I would have preferred some variety there. Like more of their streakies, but overall I am very very pleased with this crate of glass. It's very well packaged and all the pieces, except one were intact!
Cons
The only con I can possibly think of is the weight. We had to get another vehicle and make two trips, one to buy and another to pick it up. It is too heavy to pick it up packed, so we had to unload it and then move it inside, then I had to repack it into my car.

The sky is blue, December 20, 2008 5 stars
Pros
This glass is excellent for sky representation. I love the clear areas that decrease the intensity of the blue enough for substitution. I had ordered this glass for a private order and ran out at a crucial time, and was able to substitute in a lighter blue to make up for the shortfall. Another critic said the blue reminded them of the blue in old stained glass church windows. It was very easy to cut and broke true to the score another important plus for this most recent project.
Cons
None that I can think of at this time.
Other Thoughts
I would like to see more clear used in places, the glass I was sent had sparse clear areas.
