Great to keep organized, July 30, 2013 5 stars
Pros
Protects glass so it isn't laying flat - also easy to find the piece you are looking for. I had no problems assembling - super easy.
Cons
Other Thoughts
I now have 4 of them and will probably need more - they also keep glass from getting dusty by keeping it upright. Holds a bunch of glass!

Love it!, July 30, 2013 5 stars
Pros
Dries clear, no odor, easy to clean up. Absolutely perfect for mosaic projects.
Cons
Other Thoughts
I looked at Home Depot, but my local store didn't carry it. It is worth going out of your way for and ordering.

Great product, July 30, 2013 5 stars
Pros
The mesh works great for larger projects. I drew my pattern on paper which I covered with saran wrap on a cutting board. I was able to see the pattern through the mesh and apply my tiles.
Cons
Other Thoughts
If you overuse the glue, don't put it under water - all the tiles will come off! Be sure to control the glue so it doesn't come up between the tiles.

Easy to fire, the results are beautiful.

Pricey, but incredible results!, July 30, 2013 5 stars
Pros
This is easy to use - just load up glass and go! Use more clear than you would expect - it takes alot. My first piece looked like a collector's item!
Cons
Glass stays stuck after the firing, but I just keep using the same color scheme, so it doesn't matter.

Good value!

Great product, July 30, 2013 5 stars
Pros
This is a must have. It catches all the little shards and keeps them from marring my table. We also reuse all those little bits in small pieces - dichroic glass is expensive and we use every last shard!
Cons
Other Thoughts
Great value.

Fantastic, July 30, 2013 5 stars
Pros
This stuff is amazing - extremely smooth back with no kiln wash. Easy to use, no mess. I get several firings from one sheet - just be careful when you remove the fused items and you can keep reusing.
Cons
Other Thoughts
A bit pricey but totally worth it.
