I’m sure you are starting to see that just because I try a product and review it doesn’t mean that I’m finished with it and put it away in a drawer. I keep playing with it and trying to learn more so I can get better at using it and hopefully, in the process, pass along some of what I learn.
Want to know what I learned about the Fuseworks Microwave Kiln? Paper! Yes, the kiln paper you use makes a WORLD of difference. Who’d a thunk it?
Remember when I reviewed it before? See how the edges of the glass are kind of sharp looking and irregular in the photo above? I wondered how on earth people filed that down to make it more wearable.
Then someone told me that they had tried different kiln papers with their Fuseworks and it had made a difference and she even gave me a sample so that I could see for myself.
This is “Bullseye” Brand kiln paper and it gave the best finished product so far.
This also started out as a square/rectangle piece of glass with other pieces of confetti on top of it but when it came out of the microwave the finished piece is ROUND! Ah-ha!
The person I spoke with also said that different microwaves gave her different finishes too.
So if the Fuseworks Microwave Kiln is something you are considering remember that there is a lot of experimentation involved in the process. That’s not a bad thing but something to keep in mind as you make your purchase.
