I have a Phantom. For 95% of what I make the outer fire is never on. You can probably make a 2" marble on the center fire if it's mostly clear. It will take a few hours. If it's a lot of color it...

When you get the borostix, I think they work best by taking 2-3 of them, mixing them up, and then pulling them down into a new rod. They can have bubbling problems if you don't mix them up first.

Put a small wrap of clear on before you start making your bead. Then put whatever colors on top of it.

I've also noticed if you start spinning the mandrel before the glass touches it you get less of a starting glob.

Not really. Took me maybe 15-20% longer than on a standard torch.

I've had a couple others ask about it too. If I get time this weekend I'll do a video doing it.

Blow it out as thin as you can, and pop the hole as close to the pendant as you can. Don't cut or use any metal tools. If you have to remove glass, do it with another glass rod.

GA is Glass Alchemy. They discontinue colors all the time so you may or may not be able to find info on their site.

If you see any that says NSXXX that's Northstar.
