  •   GREAT FOR BEGINNERS

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".

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.
