Permanent slide kit.

I used this to make some homemade slides for my summer camp. It is a little harder than I thought. The glue really sticks to fingers and everything if you get it on you. It is a learning process, but is fun. I would recommend this product. It is a great price for the whole set, compared to if you buy the items separately.

Doesn't dry quick!

I am undecided.... keep in mind I am very much an amateur so most of the fault is mine. However, made a slide, put weight on the top of it to keep air out, and the balsam still wasn't dry overnight. I took the weight off and now I have air bubbles all over my specimens. I'm wondering if there is better media to use.

Very satisfied.

Precisely what I expected, performs as expected. Personally I prefer round cover glass slips to square ones for making permanent slides but no biggie. Very satisfied.
