Love this mold, March 24, 2017 5 stars
Pros
Easy to use, beautiful results.
Cons
Rather difficult to clean between firings, use progressively smaller brushes
Other Thoughts
I've churned out about 10 of these, just love it. Definitely use the largest grain of frit possible for clarity, fine/powder comes out looking opaque.

Great little mold!, March 24, 2017 5 stars
Pros
Easy to use, reliable
Cons
Would love a larger version, this is a bit small. Difficult to get a clear 'vein' but the pattern works wonderfully anyway.
Other Thoughts
I didn't see a recommended amount of glass to fill them with, but there's no pendant hole or anything, so I usually fill it even. Results have been great each time.

Beautiful and unique, April 27, 2016 5 stars
Pros
Beautiful glass, unique color pattern from this manufacturer. Even thickness
Cons
Nothing I would call a con
Other Thoughts
It reflects light well, but it isn't comparable to a vanity mirror type of mirror; Expect something more like Spectrum Silvercoats, you can see your reflection clearly enough to do hair but you have to stare for a moment!

Great framing stock, February 9, 2014 5 stars
Pros
Works wonderfully!
Cons
It's short, but if you didn't want that you would have ordered one of the longer lengths!

Works, with a lot of work and waste, September 22, 2013 2 stars
Pros
It does center foil on the glass.
Cons
The design peels the paper from the foil as soon as you are feeding it into the tool. Exposed foil then traverses the length of the tool. This makes it VERY difficult to get it loaded and started. They should have had the separater slot at the opposite end. The directions say double the foil over, but that's hard to do perfectly. I found a work around: Instead of peeling off 4" of foil as directed, pull off a full foot. Feed the end of the backing through the slot as directed, but then use the exposed backing to feed the foil through the other end (this makes sense if you read the directions and try it). You will have a loop of backing and the foil fed through the end. Then while holding the end of the foil itself, pull the end of the backing. The backing will work itself back down the handle and you should be good to go. It's difficult to tear the foil cleanly, as well. You need three hands (one for foiler, one for foiled glass, one for scissors).
Other Thoughts
I may mod mine to have the separating slot be closer to the end, hah. I might use this when I have a friend to assist and can foil all the pieces at once.
