Are you using colours that react with silver?
I don't know all the reacters, but the Bullseye chart is a help. Warm yellows, ambers and some greens react.

I used to get this sometimes ... I thought  I was catchingit in the flame, someone else said  it was the temp of the flame ... it needs to be cooler.

Another way is to use palladium .... it is easierto works with and has a great shimmer.
