“You can see by the difference between the beads on the left and the far right [unstruck], that this glass does NOT self-strike in the kiln. If you want the colour - you are going to have to strike it yourself. Let it cool to ‘not glowing,’ and then re-introduce it into the flame to get the strike.” Read more at DragonJools blog. – Dwyn Tomlinson

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Special thanks to Gloria Sevey for providing the photo in this section.
"A nice light, neutral gray that keeps the rod color when made into a simple spacer. However, give it some grief with a bit of shaping and extra heat and it develops a lovely, indiscriminately placed, orange blush. Way Cool!" – Gloria Sevey

"Jupiter Storm is the interesting one. It starts as a grey beige and strikes to an orangey colour. Good for silver glass – the Psyche dots are sharp and have little outlines. Unusually, it hasn’t fumed from the silver glass – the orange is from striking." Read more at Heather Kelly's blog.

"In rod form it looks like a pale grey beige but this finished goddess bead has highlights in palest caramel orange that have nothing to do with fuming from the silver leaf burnished over the top." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.
