I just anneal on the usual 104 COE schedule. Most of the Spectrum glass is Coe 96 as is the Gaffer glass and quite a lot of frit. Putting frit on COE 96 means that you can put on a huge amount if you want with no compatibility problems. I had lots of stained glass sheet left over from when I made stained glass windows so that's why I started using it, cutting into 1/4 inch strips and using as a rod. You can also use odd shaped scrap by just taking a bit more care when applying to the mandrel. Since you have to do this anyway when using say Bombay Sapphire Gin bottle glass, it isn't a problem. I just hold short pieces of scrap with a pair of pliers. Quick tip, make a base bead from white opaque Spectrum and cover with any of the transparent Spectrum waterglasses to get beautifully coloured beads.

Thanks Pat, I have a little stained class from a short course I did over 20 years ago. It was because I was looking at YouTube for lampworking and then wandered to other links that I found that you could use it , but goodness knows what type of glass I have is .

Be careful because some of them reduce very easily, if you start to see dirty streaks appear in your glass just work a little further out in the frame, I seem to remember greens reduced to copper quickly if I worked too low in the flame
