3/4 Olive Wispy Glass Tile - 1/2 Lb.

3/4" Olive Wispy Glass Tile - 1/2 Lb.

Item# 426238
Rename the Color, November 12, 2012 4 stars
Pros
Yep... they're tiles.
Cons
I would not call these "Olive", as they are definitely browns. Most people would think they have wisps of olive green.
Other Thoughts
You could call them "Olive Wood" and be accurate, as they are just like the wood I bought in France.

Better than Pictured, November 10, 2012 5 stars
Pros
Meaning, there is more depth to the color/texture variation.
Cons
Wish they came in a "value sized" quantity!
Other Thoughts
These tiles are excellent for mixing in designs where you want some reflective and some translucent (such as a candle holder or lamp)
Deluxe Ephrems Bottle Cutter

Deluxe Ephrems Bottle Cutter

WHERE'S THE ADAPTER?, October 29, 2012 4 stars
Pros
As expected, quality construction of the base unit. "Deluxe" is supposed to include the large bottle adapter, which is a must.
Cons
Missing the adapter for larger bottles/jars which makes it "Deluxe".
Other Thoughts
Kinda silly to include the candle: you can your gas stove (carefully, and with silicone potholders) and avoid all the soot. Very short, narrow strips of emery paper (would be easier if they were actual emery boards for fingernails), so plan on using your rotary tool bit - slowly, and lubricated or wet.

Cons
Almost totally opaque.

3/4" Nightscape Gold Veined Tile Mix - 1/2 Lb

Item# 425200
Not As Pictured., October 29, 2012 3 stars
Pros
Yes, they are square, smooth-edged and have what is more like copper veining (which I like).
Cons
I also ordered black and you can barely tell them apart.
3/4 White Cloud Gold Streaky Mix - 1/2 lb

3/4" White Cloud Gold Streaky Mix - 1/2 lb

Item# 426295
Why bother with a review?, October 29, 2012 5 stars

Nice gold translucent tiles. White are nicely semi-opaque.
Cons
Discontinued
3/4 Gold Streaky Mediterranean Blue Glass Tile Mix - 1/2 lb

3/4" Gold Streaky Mediterranean Blue Glass Tile Mix - 1/2 lb

Item# 426294
Little Variety and Ridged Back, October 29, 2012 3 stars
Pros
Yes, they are square, smooth and have gold streaks.
Cons
I received only two colors: both light blues. So close in color that you have no true variety. The ridges on the back may make these unsuitable for back-lit projects.
Other Thoughts
If you use opaque adhesive, it won't matter, but would defeat any transmission of light.

3/4" royal blue gold streaky glass tile - 1/2 lb.

Darker and Ridged Back, October 29, 2012 3 stars
Pros
Yes, it's glass with smooth edges and gold streaks.
Cons
Incredibly dark. The ridges on the back may make it unsuitable for back-lit projects, such as candle or sconce shades.
