Pros : Cuts very easily. True metallic bronze color glass with a wonderful appearance of depth and texture yet a completely smooth front surface. The back is painted and is surprisingly textured almost like glue chip. Beautiful in a mosaic.
Cons : Color and texture can vary between sheets of glass. Since the color/texture is only painted onto the back of the glass, it can flake off when grinding.
Other Thoughts : Use a fine grinding bit. Chips can be touched up easily with a black Sharpie or nail polish. All the colors of Van Gogh glass have black on the back.
