Default 104 TAG glass question

I have some 104 tag Taxco and Gold Emerald. Every time I have used them with other glass I get incompatibility reactions. Anyone else have this happen? What have you used them with?

Norma, I haven't used the Gold Emerald, but Taxco is one of my favorites. Usually I'm using it with dark ivory, light ivory or opal yellow. No problems. I do know that it's one of those that you have to pop in the kiln when it's still very warm, i.e. glowing a little.

Try a dragon’s breath flame. It’s high propane with a tiny bit of oxygen. You’ll know it’s working if the flame separates from the torch a little. I’m not sure but there could be info on the website.
ETA: do this at the end to reduce
