Question Reducing kiln-formed glass

Hi all,

I've been fusing a lot of lamp-working glass in the microwave kiln and have made some good pieces, but I obviously haven't been able to reduce any of them to obtain mirror-like surfaces because I don't have a torch.

Would it work if I bought a Hothead torch and passed it over the cabachons for a few seconds while the glass is red-hot and then put the kiln lid back on to anneal the pieces in the kiln as per usual?

Just to be clear, I'm trying to reduce glass that I fuse on the kiln shelf rather than on a mandrel.

Any help is much appreciated.
