This is the only product to use when etching glass. Works great every time, and the directions are clearly written. Also impressive was the timely delivery of the product.
A very easy way to etch glass. Obviously, if the product can etch glass, it makes sense to exercise reasonable care in handling it. (THAT MEANS GLOVES) Do the etching near a utility sink so that plenty of water is available to rinse off the etched glass, and to immediately flush any material that may accidentally contact the skin. The above cautions are not intended to scare anyone. With just a little care the product can be safe to handle. Window glass etches easily, while harder glass, such as leaded glass, resists etching and may require several coats. Trying to do large areas may result in uneven looking etching. Overall, I like the product
I was initially unsure about purchasing a microwave kiln. Most posts on glass fusing sites have very few positive things to say about microwave kiln glass fusing in general. Bur this looked like so much darn fun, and I certainly don't have the monies or the space for a large proper kiln atm, so I decided to try it out anyway. So glad I did! In the past 2 months or so I've made a ton of fused glass pieces. Some of them so nice I'll be giving them as jewelry gifts for holidays (I also purchased fittings for necklaces, bracelets and earrings)! Not everything came out great, but because this is so easy and quick and less expensive (compared to making larger pieces in a proper kiln) I don't care if I bork a piece; I've plenty more glass and I can fuse it less then an hour after the previous piece. A few things to note: If you are looking to make larger pieces than jewelry size (bigger than say, 2 -3 inches square) this set is not for you. If you have as much fun as I am having with the set, the initial supplies will go quickly. There's a number of good glass supply places online you can look into for more supplies. It's not cheap, but again, you'll be spending less overall because you'll be making small items and won't need to buy a huge amount. There is a learning curve, but it was not as steep as I expected - and I've never worked with glass before. I've only one microwave and use it for both food and fusing. I just clean it out between uses; hasn't been a problem at all either food or microwave wise.
