Product Description

Don't Waste Expensive Glass
Dichroic blade features a slim profile and fine diamond grit, making it the perfect tool for cutting dichroic glass, iridescent, or any glass with a delicate finish. The narrow profile means less waste, and the fine grit produces a cut without chips. Clean edges mean lower temperatures and faster firing times for kiln fired jewelry creating a clean professional look. People who enjoy using copper foil can use thinner foil with less overlap creating finer lines and more detail. Use for a smooth finish to even your most intricate cuts.

Blade kit fits the Taurus 3 Ring Saw and includes grommets.

Seen below is a set of slab cast and cut dichroic pendants by Melanie Churchill and an etched dichroic pendant by Karina Foster. Also shown are intricate cut dichroic pins by Nancy Geddes, as seen in "Dichroics: Art Glass All Dressed Up" book #6224.

  •   Expensive Lesson
By on
Pros : Nice and thin.
Cons : After fitting (adjusted a few times) it snapped within the first 10 secs of use - probably had a weak spot.
Other Thoughts : Very expensive lesson. Will stick to the standard blade.

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.
