  •   Great kit
By on
Pros : It has most things you'll need to start making stained glass projects!
Cons : You'll need to get a few small things, like flux remover.
Other Thoughts : I really liked the glass that came with this and the grinder is amazing! After pricing the items separately (online in general) it was still a huge save to buy the kit. There wasn't anything included in the kit that I haven't found necessary so it's a very well thought out kit.

  •   Everything I needed to redo my grandma's cabinet!
By on
Pros : This kit included everything I needed to turn my grandmothers china cabinet into a wonderful conversation piece. This was my first project and my friends are amazed at what I created. The instruction video was terrific!
Cons : The glass included in my kit really looked great when finished but I would have liked to have chosen my own colors.
Other Thoughts : I always wanted to do my own stained glass projects and you made it happen. I am so pleased! Thank you

  •   Really Great...mostly!
By on
Pros : I have had a lot of fun with this kit. Almost everything needed to start "doing" stained glass. The video is pretty easy to follow and most of the tools are well made and easy to use.
Cons : The video talks about using a bevel for the center of the project instead of cutting a circle. It would be so easy for this to be included in the kit, saving a lots of frustration. The flux pen should be replaced with a small bottle of flux and a brush as the flux pen was less than useless, no directions and it broke quickly. This kit would be really great with just a few little changes.
Other Thoughts : I have had a lot of fun with this for a relatively small expense. I have made several small projects and think I am hooked!

1. Make the glass strips as wide as youd like your mosaic chunks to be. Strips about 1/2 to 3/4 usually work well. 2. Snip small pieces off the strip. Aiming your mosaic cutter straight across the strip will produce squares and rectangles. Aiming the cutter at an angle (the same angle each time you cut) will give you diamonds. A combination of aiming straight across the strip and at alternating angles will produce triangles. 3. Once youve aimed the cutter, just squeeze the handles until a piece of glass breaks off. Or, you can snip pieces off a larger piece of glass. Cut near the edge and work towards the middle. This will produce random moon shaped pieces, which you can use to fill in small areas of background. They also make nice leaves.

1. Make sure that your pieces are clean and dry. Cut a piece of clear contact paper, remove the backing and lay it sticky-side-up over the pattern. 2. This is a perfect way to hold cut glass, globs, jewels, or marbles in place for tack soldering. As you can see in the photo, you can even move the sheet around and, if you are careful, you shouldn’t disturb the glass at all. 3. Tack solder the pieces to each other as you normally would. Then, remove the contact paper and finish soldering the front before turning the project over and soldering the back. Reprinted with permission from Stained Glass News. All rights reserved.

Reinforcement is necessary on larger windows. As a rule of thumb, a window more than three square feet should be reinforced. Either reinforcing bar or rod may be used for support. Be sure to consider this when designing the window so that the reinforcement does not intrude or compromise the design of the finished work. In either case the reinforcement is soldered to the back of the panel in one of two ways. The bar should be pre-tinned before use. You will solder the bar in several places at intersecting lines on the window. Rough the areas to be soldered on the bar with steel wool. Apply flux and coat the areas with solder. Doing this will make soldering the bar to the window much easier. Place the bar on edge and solder to the window in the predetermined areas. When using rod, a length of pre-tinned wire is first
