After numerous material washes and re-wears by my active 2 year old, the heat transfer stays completely in tact and looks brand new! There is no "letter cracking" of any kind like you can sometimes see with shirts and sweatshirts you purchase at the store.
This is a must have product for your Silhouette!
The kit contains a small jar of etching cream, 3 feet of vinyl stencil and 3 feet of transfer tape, a Silhouette hook tool, a Silhouette scraper tool, a download card for 10 designs, and a DVD with a short instructional video.
Conspicuously and unforgivably absent are a pair of protective nitrile or neoprene gloves. I think Silhouette may be concerned about scaring away hobbyists and is downplaying the nastiness of the etching "cream": this is pretty serious stuff and you should treat it extremely carefully, always wearing goggles, long sleeves and pants, and preferably work outside. Any drop will permanently damage floor tiles, countertops, glasses (obviously) within seconds, as well as cause skin burns.
Unfortunately for my first project the etching cream had somewhat separated and when I went to pour it onto the glass as shown in the video, fluid poured out and etched unprotected parts of my glass (good thing it was a dollar store special!). I would have liked to have been forewarned and some advice as to how to stir the cream into ideal consistency would be nice -- even better, include a stirring tool.
You can get the contents of this kit for significantly less than the price of the kit, so it's not a very good value; but if you want to learn the basics of glass etching it's an affordable one-stop-shop way of doing so. I would give it five stars for fun and learning value but it loses one star for the insufficient warnings and lack of gloves in the package.
I will review the box contents below:
The box contains:
A) 4 sheets of premium vinyl (9-inch by 24-inch of black, white, dark pink, leaf green): it would have been nice if it had more lengthy samples, but then again it's a starter pack.
B) 10-feet of premium transfer paper: nice to have for future projects as well
C) Silhouette hook & Silhouette scraper: These are pretty handy tools when working with vinyl, the hook will help you get those "negative" vinyl out of the way before applying transfer paper. And the scrapper helps you have the vinyl in its right place without air bubbles, it's not exceptionally required though as you can use any credit card like card for the same purpose, it's nice to have though :)
D) Exclusive download card good for 10 vinyl designs: This one entitles you to download 10 free vinyl designs, with text messages, house shape, frame shapes, a train, a tree branch and a couple more..
E) Idea booklet: This is a couple f pages that gives you the general idea, but you can find more resources online
F) The instructional DVD: This is simply a video on how to start :)
Over all, I'd say it's a good starter pack, would have been nice though if it was a little cheaper, and had more lengthy samples, thus the four stars :)
