Last day at the torch I was testing a few new rods of Double Helix silvered glass. It's always interesting that is for sure. Some turn out and some look like mud and unfortunately this time I also had some pretty ones with thermal cracks - major bummer! Here are a few of my favorite ones from the day:
Okay so now for my log information. First 16 beads are all testing Psyche by Double Helix.
The next Double Helix glass I tested was Kalypso.
1. Base of Hades, dots of T2, reduced, encased. 2. Base of Hades, etc. 3. Base of opal yellow, sangre, and copper green, encased with T2 and the usual application of clear spiral and clear, smoosh, etc. 4. Base of Canyon De Chili. 5. Base of Dirty Martini with flat dots being reduced and raised dots being struck. 6. French Blue base, center dots of T2, side dots of black right before applying T2, all reduced and capped with clear. Very nice purple colors are produced over the black dots.
Some of the beads are so colorful that I took photos of them in different lighting conditions. Here are some more pix of them just to get the idea of how colorful these beads actually are.
That's it. I'm caught up finally with my blog. Now I can go back to my torch and start experimenting tomorrow!
As always, thanks for reading my blog and taking the time to send me your comments!!! I do appreciate it very much!
