Working Tip: Flame or kiln strike at 1075°F. Work neutral; reduce at end for metallic effects.
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"This color can be worked either unencased or encased.
When working this color unencased I advise using a flame that has a bit more oxygen in the mix than your normal settings. This will allow you to use reduction properly at the end of the piece by increasing the amount of propane in your torch flame. Through reduction your transparent green base glass will push out colors ranging from creamy blues and greens to yellows, oranges, and purples to a metallic rainbow iridescence.
Encasement of rod will yield softer tones over green depending on flame settings during the encasement process." - Mike Shelbo
