Reichenbach104 L 6206: Multi Dark

Another from the Reichenbach 104 COE line up. I've been told that the 96 COE Reichenbach Multi Dark is much more reactive, but so far - I'm not seeing that result. I am getting some very striking colours - and I mean that in the sense of dramatic, not "our" sense of the word striking.

This bead is a base of Multi Dark 104, heat the glass to clear hot, heating low in the flame. Make bead and shape. Encase in clear. Mash. Firepolish it. It was very dark going in.

Other side of the same bead.

This was also a base bead, superheated to clear, and encased.

This one was just worked normally - a little on the cool side, and then encased.

This one was reduced, and then encased.

This one is the 96 COE Reichenbach Multi Dark.

Here they are side by side - the top one is the 104, the bottom is the 96 COE. Pretty similar, really.

More results to come.

    Hi DJ, I've never seen Reichenbach glass before; so this is very interesting. Thank you.
