This video was pretty helpful. Unfortunately, it looks like their assessment was pretty accurate: it's not very high quality. After a few tries you can figure out how to avoid letting it turn really brown/yellow, but I couldn't get it to be completely clear. If you practice pouring it really thin on a perfectly level surface, you can minimalize this effect (it only looks yellow on the edges/breaks). I'm thinking you might be able to neutralize the yellow with a little blue or purple food dye, but I haven't had time to try it. Also, there's always a few random bubbles in it. Don't know how to fix that one, though. : (
