I was very confused for a while. I seemed to see a lot of people use "reduce" for different effects.
For instance, if one was talking about getting the desired effect from Raku... sometimes I saw...

Not everyone likes...

I use the Lauscha clear.
I have not had problems with it, except for a frit blend or two, and in that case, I blame the frit blend! :) I tend to encase heavy and deep, so I love the no bubbles or...
