  •   GREAT FOR BEGINNERS
By on
Pros : EVERY TOOL ADDED TO MY PRODUCTION OF SOME GREAT PIECES. HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE CEMENT
Cons : THE JOINT CEMENT (BLACK) IS...ITS JUST HORRIBLE TO LEARN WITH.
Other Thoughts : THE (BLACK) JOINT CEMENT IS A HUGE MESS WAITING TO HAPPEN. ITS AS SOLID AS A ROCK WITH ALL THE OIL RENDERED TO THE TOP. IT'S LIKE TRYING TO RETRIEVE DRIED CONCRETE. ONCE YOU DO GET THE BUCKE EMPTY...DO OT WEAR ANYTHING YOU CARE ABOUT AS IT WILL BE RUINED. ITS SOFT AND PLIABLE LITE FLIMSY SILLY PUTTY ONCE YOU WORK IT BACK TO GOOD. I USED SOME WHITING FOR MINE TO KEEP IT FROM MAKING SUCH AN INCREDIBLE MESS

Pros : Seems like a nice kit and shipping was quick but pricey. Video was semi informative.
Cons : Shippment was missing the glass pack and the black epoxy. I talked to Delphi and arrange to have the missing items shipped to me.
Other Thoughts : Make sure you have everything you ordered when you recieve your shippment.

Pros : Great value. You get a lot of bang for your buck, some of the most beautiful colors of glass, and all the tools you need to start your first project. The instructional DVD has great tips for cutting, foiling, soldering and lead came. I would recommend this package to anyone.
Cons : The DVD, although very informative, has glitches in it which seems to be common for Delphi DVD's.
Other Thoughts : Over all, I am very happy with the ultimate lead tool kit and recommend it "what a great value".

How and when did you get started in glass art? I saw an article about Kristin Frantzen-Orr along with a step by step example of how to do one of her famous floral beads. I talked about it so much my husband bought me a beginning torch set for the following Christmas. Once I got the kiln and the duel fuel torch, I just kept experimenting and growing from there. Kristin is still my idol and I keep telling myself that one day I will do nice, clean floral beads like hers. Your jewelry, vases, plates etc. are all beautiful. I especially love the geologic nature of your Copper Reactive dish, its so unique. Can you tell us a little about how you achieved that look? The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks

We tell ourselves not to judge a book by its cover, but the simple truth is, we are attracted to whats attractive. On a recent hunt for a birthday present for my mother, I came across several beautiful handbags in several different boutiques. What ultimately influenced my final purchase decision was the complimentary gift-wrapping offered by one of the storeowners. The handbag itself wasnt any prettier or better quality than the others I was considering, but the packaging was beautiful. Brightly colored tissue, a big sturdy box, quality wrapping paper and an oversized hand-tied bow. No, it wasnt sealed with a kiss, rather a large gold embossed sticker with the boutique name and logo (theres nothing wrong with a little discreet self-promotion). Here are a few tips for better packaging-it might just buy you your next customer. 1. Show your customers what theyll get. The boutique I mentioned earlier had

Delphi merchandiser Kayleigh McGrath recently shared some photos from her early days at Delphi. She was playing around with different colors and textures of glass and learning the hard way that there are limits to what you can do (and cant do) in fusing. The first image shows what happened when Kayleigh layered dichroic glass, coating to coating. The base is 90 COE dichroic rainbow pixi stix on black, (Delphi item 921714) and the top is an old texture we dont carry any more (cyan red radium on clear.) The second image is of a piece Kayleigh loved so much she impatiently removed it from the kiln when it was still too hot (havent we all done this. ) As you can see, it suffered thermal shock. This was made with the same 90 COE pixi stix on black for the base and capped with Delphi item U630090 90 COE
