I have used iron powder in my glass work, mainly on top of the glass to see its' performance. My experience was not too impressive, it was rough and not very attractive, at least for the look I was going for. The biggest problem with the iron powder is that it is very fine and messy, and hard to contain to one place. It seems to be full of static.
