UGLY COLORS, December 18, 2010 1 stars
Pros
none
Cons
I envy the person who got the nice colors - because mine are horrible
Other Thoughts
I purchased a bunch of this muffle glass, the pack plus individual sheets. not only did it come broken, but the colors are muted and horrible -- all browns and ugly greens and they look nothing like they do in the pictures.

it's GARBAGE!!, December 18, 2010 1 stars
Pros
none
Cons
It doesn't even stand up. Read the other reviews - no sense in me repeating everyone. It simply doesn't work.
Other Thoughts
I wish I had returned it -- but i didn't have a need for it or try to use it until after the 30 days had gone by. That is a big problem with Delphi returns -- if it's unused or useless, we should be able to return it anytime. i wish i had read the reviews on this product -- it's really a piece of GARBAGE!!

doesn't work for more than one layer, August 9, 2010 1 stars
Pros
none
Cons
the gripping method seems backwards to me. you have to lift the handle up to open the mouth instead of squeezing the handles together. the mouth doesn't open wide enough to hold anything more than a single layer piece of glass - not useful for grinding fused pieces at all. also, doesn't hold the glass very well. glass slips out constantly. i don't recommend this tool at all.

Fun stuff, but little hard to work with, April 18, 2010 4 stars
Pros
I've tried several different consistencies, and it seems to work best when really thick.
Cons
It can flake right off of the glass when you are trying to carve it and clean it up, but I've found that I can put a little more wet medium down and sort of 'glue' the piece that fell off back on to the glass.
Other Thoughts
It would be nice if it would mix to a consistency that was really smooth - i expected it to draw on the glass more like those 'puff paints' or glitter glue does, but its not that smooth. I recommend making it super thick and using as small of a hole in the bottle cap as possible while still getting it to flow out. Cleanup and carving with various sizes of xacto knives works best. Also, rather than carving pieces away to clean the edges, you can push the edges inward to make them sharper. That helps prevent too large of a chunk from getting cut away by accident. all in all, a fun new way to expand your creativity!!
