funny things happen when you can’t see in

by lynneglazzard on January 16, 2009

I attempted to make some beads using Double Helix Terra 2 yesterday, spent ages reading up on what to do and decided the first few were a bit too hot and that I hadn’t really understood how to strike them using my hothead torch, they were a very pale almost grey colour. I went and looked up more information and had another go and thought I had got the hang of striking….. opened up the kiln after annealing them to find they had all completely changed colour, everything from yellow to blue, through a rich deep chocolate brown. Some of them are really nice but I am not sure there is even a pair that match. I will have to have another look at them in the daylight and maybe try again?

Terra does strike further in the kiln. I haven’t tried Terra 2 but the original Terra was a beautiful glass.Nice beads!
