Stephanie Demonstrates:  Cut & weigh the glass pieces in advance to ensure replicability.  Mix with thick mandrels or steel chopsticks.  Twist, fold, and continue blending until there are no striations.  OR - mix to achieve color striations for rod or murini.  104 COE enamels may be used.  Test the blend by pulling out a little with tweezers and cool it on a graphite marver before pulling.  For thicker rods, cool the mass a little and pull slowly; hold vertically to keep it straight.   

    
 

Sample Blends

 

Soft green (upper L) from equal amounts of pea green and acid yellow
