I like the way the gallery glass looks as paint enough to pick up the assortment pack. I have a bunch of clear plastic for the LED effects that need this type of coloring. Thanks for demoing!
Thanks for the question
I would not have tried to use it as paint if you had not asked.
Oldent, is the Gallery Glass really paint or a semisolid when in bottle? How does it hold shape when put on the surface?
BTW, do you ahve the HWFF lathe/cutter?
The Gallery glass is like thick glue.
It is thick but shrinks a lot.
The color changes a little and it shrinks. I think you can see the effect better in the bowl.It helps hold the glass shards together as well.
The tea light LED will look better with the logs. I will fill the air bubbles too. This is a WIP of some 3by3 fire places.

If you don't think you need much
Hot wire cutters
I started cutting foam in the late 80s. I have most of the Hot Wire Foam Factory hand tools and both the standard and pro power sources.
This is my OOP Avalon table cutter with a modified table sled for the Shifting Lands Pattern cutter.
My friend Allen has one of these.
If I was going to get a new table cutter I would look at one of these.
The basic hand tools from The Foam factory are a good starting point.
This is a sculpting tool if you want to use it like a copping saw you will need the bar.

If you are not sure you need the table version. The wire and power source from the sculpting tool can be used to make one.
If you use the whole wire you can use the basic power source. No Math and you will not have to worry that the wire is too hot. No fire and less chance for the foam to burn. Melting foam is safer than burning foam. Note ventilation.
I made my table surface round like a scroll saw. I can use clamps if I want to use a fence. The clamp/wire attachment was not necessary. It makes it harder to keep the wire tight.
I use my drill press table when I need an accurate fence. I mentioned this because one of the criticisms of the Proxxon cutter my friend Allen has is that the fence is poor.I think that is really unfair because it really does not have one.
This mechanism is found on table saws to make cross cuts. A fence is used for rip cuts.Foam does not have wood grain. You really need parallel groves to make accurate cuts. If you want thin parallel cuts you will need the Shifting Lands Sleds. https://www.shiftinglands.com/shop/18-h ... ter-add-on
