Beautiful and Realistic, but...
October 29, 2013
From an artist eye, I can say these panels are among the best looking and most realistic that I've found. They are visually perfect in color and detail and will make any fireplace look great. They are very fragile panels and must be handled with great care during installation. These are not hard ceramic type panels, but rather a delicate 'Styrofoam-like' substance that crumbles easily. Just take gentle care during the install and appreciate the beauty for years to come.
Pros:Absolutely beautiful and very realistic looking (so says a very particular artist).
Cons:Very fragile, requiring very gentle handling during installation. Just lifting the panel from horizontal to vertical can cause it to break in two if not properly supported.
