Spectrum Fusers Reserve Christmas OpalArt

Spectrum Fusers Reserve Christmas OpalArt

Item# XFRXMAS
Not enough red, September 24, 2013 3 stars
Pros
This is a pretty and a unique looking glass. Even though it doesn't look Christmasy to me I think it will make a cool fall piece
Cons
It doesn't look like the picture. My pieces had very little "red". Actually just looks like small streaks of orange.

Nice big pieces, July 29, 2013 3 stars
Pros
The pack I received was very similar to what is shown in the sample picture. The pieces were also nice sized. Big enough to incorporate into a bowl or plate sized piece.
Cons
Some of the pieces had scoring marks through the middle of them that you had to work with or work around
Owl Millefiori - 96 COE

Cute but really small, July 29, 2013 4 stars
Pros
These owls are really cute. They also fuse nicely without much distortion.
Cons
The pack I got didn't have any big pieces. All of them were 3-4mm in diameter. So even though they are cute they're so small it's difficult to see what they are

Fun assortment, July 29, 2013 4 stars
Pros
I've tried all of the pieces now and like how they turned out. Have even added to bigger pieces and not had an issue cracking.
Cons
The only con I have is that the fish don't really look like fish when fused. Maybe I haven't tried the right combination to make them look right and not stretch too much.

Fuses consistently. High quality glass, July 29, 2013 5 stars
Pros
I love this glass. Of all the dichroics I think this fuses the smoothest and most consistent. When I first got this pack I made my own sampler fusing with and without a clear piece on top. That's been very helpful because the colors are hard to predict. I also etch small detailed images into the dichroic and then fuse. This glass does not distort etchings as much as others I've tried.
Cons
The only con I have is that it is expensive.

Fuses nicely, August 9, 2012 5 stars

Used this on a bowl along with lots of colors. Pictures don't do this justice. It fuses nicely and really pops with color
Cons
Kind of pricey

Makes unique bowl, August 9, 2012 5 stars
Pros
Used this to make a center bowl for the kitchen table. Was easy to use and creates a unique artsy bowl shape
Cons
My bowl was a bit thick (3 layers) and didn't slump down and get a flat bottom. So it kind of rocks. But easily fixed with a sander
