Effetre Silver #1
Again, I had no idea whether I had a striker or a reducer on my hands.
This is a core of clear, heat the #1 to clear, and encase. Cool, and strike. I thought I saw some purple on it at this stage - but it disappeared. I reduced it, and no change. I encased it in clear - no change. I mashed it, and used the spiral press.
This one is a clear core, encased in #1, cool. Heated to clear, cool. Kilned - I notice that it struck to this dark amber colour as it cooled. It has a slight haze to it, hard to spot in these photos.
Not unattractive, but rush out and stock up? Needs further research before going there!
