Most all the books from this company are to be utilized with craft tools most people have available. I contacted the company before buying and she said she couldn't imagine these projects needed a kiln. I thought to myself.....okay...maybe there is a new way of slumping glass out there.This book utilizes a kiln in all the projects where fusing glass pieces are needed. Some nice bottle cutting projects and instructions including terrariums, clothing racks, bell bottles,decoupaging, drinking glasses and wind chimes.
Not sure how someone can put together something that is only 19 pgs long and call it a book. I was very disappointed in the limited amount of projects. I have found better products and glass cutting information on line for free. The book showed several projects but didnt go in to a lot of detail showing you how to do the project. Example: Cut rectangular shapes from beer bottle using handheld glass cutter. Yet no instuctions or pitures on how to cut glass by hand. I was looking for a little more step by step instructions to go along with the projects.
I was expecting a bigger book and would call this more of a large booklet. Nonetheless, it was very informative. Directions were clear and concise. It had plenty of ideas and variety for glass bottle projects. I am very pleased with this purchase.
I should have read previous reviews, as I was quite surprised to find the 8 whole pages (if you include the cover - which they do) they claim to be a book. It's held together with 2 staples. I have sheet music with more content! It's not useless, but I can find much more information on the Internet for nothing.
Cute book full of a bunch of neat ideas for upcycling bottles. I have tried several projects that have come out nicely.
Not a book at all. Maybe a 7 page booklet or bookless. A waste of money do not waste yours.
What is on the cover is all that's inside, so take a good look and don't waste your money.It does have thorough instructions on putting the pieces together.
This book was listed as an add on book to the Bottle Cutter I ordered.. Very nice cover, I ordered it.Some of the instructions require more equipment then a beginner would have, like a Kiln, instructions on how to slump glass in the Kiln.A butane torch for smoothing the glass edges. I see this book as an advanced addition, not for a beginner.It is beautifully illustrated but only 19 pages, when you take out the advanced information and just have the basic information for a beginner,that information is very little.Disappointed..
