  •   Finicky
By on
Pros : It's a pretty good color selection, and they work okay when sponged on to make a subtle background texture/color.
Cons : The consistency of the paints greatly varies from container to container...make sure you shake really well. They are difficult to use with the tips. They often look "powdery" when fired between 2 layers, and even look powdery when fired on top most of the time (even at full fuse temps.) It's difficult to paint them onto the glass because of the consistency; if you try to paint in layers, you will inevitably crack/scrape off the layer below trying to apply another one.
Other Thoughts : These don't vitrify and get glossy like you'd expect them to...they always just kind of look like dried paint.

  •   Great kit at a great price!
By on
Pros : Glassline pens are great to use for fine detail. Recommended to fire at 1500, however, I have also fired them as low as 1375 and I have been pleased. This kit has so many great colors. I purchased the kit for the colors you can not purchase individually (for me, brown & grey). However, I ended up loving some of the others that I had not considered. The price is also better for the kit and a set of tips are included.
Cons : Some of the colors can be thicker and therefore more difficult to apply. I find that frustrating. Be sure to shake the colors VERY well before using. They can be very watery also. I always test on a piece of paper before applying to my work. Also, check your piece before firing to look for smudges & cracking if applied to thick. These can be corrected by "scratching" them off with a toothpick. It is easier than trying to wipe off small mistakes when the glassline is still wet.
Other Thoughts : I suggest firing a tester with all of the colors on it to use for future review. It is very helpful to see the "true" color after firing. I would also suggest purchasing extra tips with this kit. I love working with the tips for precision. I "plug" my tips with straight pins with the colored balls on them. Great way to keep them sealed with the tips still on. I clean my tips by letting them dry out, scraping them out with toothpick and then soaking in nail polish remover to get out the final residue. Works great!

  •   Fun
By on
Pros : Lots of fun to use. I like to use them on each layer of glass...makes a pretty cool fused dimensional piece.
Cons : The paint dries quickly in the pen tip. I keep the little cleaning wire in the tip between using colors. This makes it very easy to have multiple colors open at once.
Other Thoughts : I used them to trace my daughter's first "drawing." It is now a fused memory. Highly recommend these!!!

  •   Fun to paint with
By on
Pros : This worked best for me with a brush, as paint. I painted a wash on a white piece of glass and layered a clear piece with flowers, landscape, etc. It was 3D and awesome! I also painted on fusible paper (dogs) and was happy with that, fused between clear glass.
Cons : I'd prefer a standard cap option, since the little caps don't stay on well and the "paint" dries.
Other Thoughts : The range of colors is great.
