Dawn, thanks for the great posts and pics. I am struggling with raku, magic and multi. I guess the browns I am getting are nice in an organic sort of way, but would really like to get the blues and purples, greens, etc. I've read so much conflicting info on the subject, I am more confused now than ever. I have tried heating the beads until they are drippy, but can't get the shape back after without serious distortion. I have turned up oxygen and I have turned up propane (I have a Carlisle mini cc). No matter what I try, I end up with brown. My question is am I supposed to be going heavy on oxygen or propane? Also, how many times do you reheat after the big heat up? Maybe I am not taking enough time? Any light you can shine is greatly appreciated. Thanks
