  •   Worked perfectly
By on
Pros : Colors mix like paint. Nice color assortment.
Cons : A little thick out of the tube but works fine when thinned with water.
Other Thoughts : Use them like acrylic paints. Fired to 1300 without any problems burning off. Worked better when applying multiple thing layers vs. on thick layer.

  •   Maybe I'm just not doing it right...
By on
Pros : full, mixable palate, if you can get them to work
Cons : I had a lot of problems with these burning off in the kiln, especially when I fired them above the suggested 1300 degrees. Its less of a problem where the paint is quite thick, but it will certainly look quite different after firing than before. The paints are quite thick and didn't really like being thinned with water or klyrfire, (in fact, almost completely burnt off when thinned) and i found getting even coverage to be very challenging.
Other Thoughts : I don't think I would buy these again.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
