Oceanside Orange Transparent - 96 COE

Oceanside Orange Transparent - 96 COE

Item# X171
Decent, December 19, 2014 4 stars
Pros
Like all the S96 that I've tried, this glass is smooth and easy to cut. I like that it's less expensive than the regular clear.
Cons
I definitely get more bubbles with this glass, and some rise to the surface and make bumps. I haven't played around too much with firing temps and hold times so maybe one day I'll find a way to fix this.
Bullseye Southwest Splendor Value Glass Pack - 90 COE

Bullseye Southwest Splendor Value Glass Pack - 90 COE

Truly a good value, November 5, 2013 4 stars
Pros
For a value glass pack I was very pleased with the selection - 4 pieces of iridized glass, 2 chopsticks, and 2 "mardi gras." It was fun to open the box have each piece be a surprise.
Cons
One of the pieces had a corner broken off. That is the only reason I removed one star. The corner was not in the box, so I can only assume it was broken before being packaged.
Other Thoughts
I think you need to order this at your own risk. I got lucky with 4 great pieces of glass, two ok pieces, and two not-so-great. The not-so-great was of course the broken piece and one of the mardi gras designs. This piece was half clear and had design on the other half. I think that is a problem with mardi gras, streamers, and streakies in general. It's better to see them in person so you can choose a good piece. I plan to order this pack again in the next couple months, so I will rate it again when I do.

Try it!, August 13, 2013 5 stars
Pros
This looks pretty much exactly like it looks in the picture when fused on black. See my reviews for Rainbow and Far Out paper also.
Cons
Other Thoughts
I have fused this up to 1460 with good results. So far I have always used a clear cap to sandwich it.

Fun pattern, August 13, 2013 5 stars
Pros
I really loved the pattern on this paper. It cuts or punches easily and looks great fused with a clear cap.
Cons
Other Thoughts
The darker areas may look better fused on a gray background because they are very dark when fused on black.

So many uses!, August 13, 2013 5 stars
Pros
Although my sheet did not really look "rainbow" like in the picture, I am very happy with it. You can cut or punch this easily to add dichro accents, or use it to make your colored glass dichroic. Much cheaper than buying a sheet of dichroic glass!
Cons

Scribe, August 13, 2013 4 stars
Pros
This scribe is a good tool to have if you want to sign your piece but want something more subtle than ink. It's also good for marking measurements if you don't like dealing with sharpies.
Cons
This takes a bit of getting used to to sign pieces, and will sometimes skip on the glass. However, it does leave a nice, sharp line.

Handy to have, August 13, 2013 4 stars
Pros
I use these to arrange glass in my 6" high kiln. They have also saved me in a couple situations where I needed to manipulate hot glass in the kiln.
Cons
I do wish they were an inch or two longer.

Great deal, August 13, 2013 5 stars
Pros
These are great quality posts for a great price! They are level in both directions so it's like getting two sets in one.
Cons
None

Protect as expected, August 13, 2013 4 stars
Pros
These are a must have for venting the kiln. The separated fingers provide more dexterity than oven mitts.
Cons
They are a little too big for my hands; I need to put my pinky in the third finger. Also, they are not enough protection for reaching into a hot kiln.

4-1/2" X 3-1/8" Rectangular Soap Dish

Item# 4237
Nice size, August 13, 2013 4 stars
Pros
This is a great size for a small soap dish. The dishes release easily every time.
Cons
It takes some playing around with to figure out exactly what size to cut the glass to get the sides to be as high as the photo shows.
