Its really lovely and thank you so much for sharing. I'm about to submit a wee order to Martin and will check if he has any of that red available! If I get anything remotely as nice as this I will post but if you dont hear its because I managed to make another poo brownish green item!

I pulled the test beads out of the kiln this morning, I can confirm that the paler reds don't quite work. Interestingly, if you gaot your hands on some Marmorin and subsequently had no idea what to do with it this technique produces a similar yet paler effect  Wink

Well, mine didn't turn out too well sadly - I think I may have used too much silver?  I'll have another go tomorrow perhaps.

A bit shiney green perhaps? That's either too much silver or not burning the reduction away quite enough, or not completely burning the silver away in the first place  Undecided

A lot of greyish silver in the background, as well as the 'stars' - perhaps I haven't burned it away enough.  I'll try both ways.  In the centre of the bead it was ok, so it may be more that I haven't given it enough heat all over initially.

Gorgeous galaxy bead Veebee! Cool I will try it.

There's a similar, but different! tutorial over on LE http://lampworketc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=235, which I keep meaning to try as well. It uses a different base glass.

Funnily enough I tried trans cobalt yesterday but must have used a bit too much silver because it did not look like that!

Thanks for the tute, Vee.
For a beginner (me), the instructions were very clear and precise, but my result was a complete pigs ear  Cry
I'm used to producing greeny brown sludge with silver glass now.
The only time they work for me is on surface decoration, and I can only guarantee Aura and Helios up to now. Oh, and TAG Golden Emerald.
I'm ordering my Cricket tomorrow, so hopefully my sludge will depart with my Hot Head.  The bead isnt a bad shape but it's massive, and most of you will prolly remember how much patience it takes to make massive beads on a HH.
On the plus side, it didn't crack.
Maybe that would have been a blessing  Grin

Haha!

I was tempted to ask, but I didn't think you would be  Grin

I've just checked to see if I have any of the smallest jump rings from you from when I made George's Pheasible earrings.

I may use them with these from today. Made for Alexandra (my daughter) for her holidays next week.
