Help! My Clear Turns AMBER!
Hi guys and girls,

I'm using Effetre 10mm clear, which works fanTABulous for most colors, but it seems gaia and psyche are leaving a lot of silver on the clear while they're reduced. My other silver reduction colors don't do this.

Suggestions, ideas? Anything? I would prefer not to fume the crap out of my clear, thanks ;D

Use zephyr :)

Does it come in 10mm?

PerfectDeb 2011-06-13 4:33am

not yet

the rods are fairly thin actually, maybe 6mm

Fuming is a heat issue isn't it? Can you let your base cool a bit more before you apply the clear?

some colours just react, have you not seen my frozen urine bead covered in boogers? this is reichenbach clear over silver foil - i very carefully didnt burn off the foil at all, (so the core was quite cool) i was going for a clear bead with a sparkly silver core, then i got all enthusiastic and put squiggles of some kind of silver glass over the outside and just to add insult to huge injury, over reduced the squiggles

ta da!!

I would love some Zephyr.....If they would get it into production......

It's definetly the fumes from the silver glass that make the clear turn yellow.
