Crimps Well, August 13, 2013 4 stars
Pros
So long as you can keep track of the spool unwinding this foil works well; laying it flat and working with small pieces seems to improve matters in keeping a spool wound. Four hands would work well for larger pieces.
Cons

Nice and sticky, August 13, 2013 4 stars
Pros
Nimble fingers are helpful with this product. The thickness of this one is helpful, probably easier to hold onto than some of the thinner foils, so long as it fits the glass well. Sticks & crimps pretty well with a strong thumb nail.
Cons
Next time I'll probably just stick with Copper on both sides.

Wear Gloves, August 13, 2013 3 stars
Pros
Provides an option other than silver for solder seams. Is stunning with the right color combinations.
Cons
Not something I would want to use everyday. Required a few applications for something close to desired affect with some projects.
Other Thoughts
Will try other products in this line down the road.

Not very helpful in my experience, August 13, 2013 1 stars
Pros
Cons
Having trouble comming up with anything really nice to say about this product for it's intended purpose. I didn't find this product to be very useful in it's intended, described purpose. A fine grit sandpaper did more good.

Safety First!, August 13, 2013 4 stars
Pros
This product works well in dealing with Soldering. Aluminum foil makes a great accompanyment (underneath) for any solder that might try to roll away. Also quite light and portable for a 'brick'.
Cons
3/4 Cathedral Stained Glass Chip Assortment - 48 Pieces.

3/4" Cathedral Stained Glass Chip Assortment - 48 Pieces.

Item# 424361
Nice assortment for just getting started, August 13, 2013 4 stars
Pros
This package of precut glass is a great way to get started on glass projects. Inexpensive enough to try out mosaics or even assembly of stained glass and find out if it's a hobby to stick with. Nearly even number of colors in the package I received. Cut well based on sizes being even for each piece.
Cons
Safe Art Soldering Flux - 8 Oz

Safe Art Soldering Flux - 8 Oz

Item# 96102
First Flux Purchase, August 13, 2013 5 stars
Pros
My experience with flux is limited. Finding one that is considered safe and potentially not as toxic as others was a pleasant surprise. It seems to work well, though I have little to compare it to.
