Bullseye question
I'm almost 100% Effetre so I don't know Bullseye colors well. Is there a color that does something close to what Effetre Ivory does with silver ?

Here's some information. Sorry not to directly answer your question, but I don't have time to look up that particular effect right now.

Glass with reactive components:

Yes, French Vanilla is reactive, as is one of their clears for starters...go to their website or to for more info.

Bullseye Rod Nougat works great with silver

Depends what you want it to do. Can you elaborate?

I am looking for an effect similar to the silvered ivory.

The French Vanilla (and others) will give you a reaction, definitely. What part of the effect, though, are you looking for?

The webbing that gives a rock like effect. So far I haven't seen that with French Vanilla.

That webbing is very hard to get with BE - the closest I have been able to get is with Nougat, I think it was. I posted about it in a thread here - I will see if I can find it.

ETA - It was custard - which is Nougat with another color mixed in - there are details here:

You can make silvered stringer that works the same as 104 silvered stringer. Same exact process.

For the shards, it's been a long time since I made them, but they require a slightly different technique. They actually striate better without repeated cycles. 104, when I made those shards, have more distinct "lines" with repeated cycles.

Thanks, this looks closest to what I am looking for.

I've never been able to get any of the Bullseye to create that effect. I would get a yellowish brown with a few blackened streaks in it, but none of the webbing. I don't think Bullseye is dense enough. It's too translucent, most of the colors are. Same with Uroboros.
