So I have ordered a few competitors pieces to see how I compare.. I would never send out a burnt piece like this. Also the 2 in the last two, middle of the 3 are another competitor they came with tape and smaller than mine. He was nice of enough to explain the tape which is a great idea, except you really can’t tell if it’s burnt. He leaves it on for people to paint in sections which is a great idea for family events or school projects.
