Default Precision Da Vinci Double Amber Purple

Does anyone have any information of what glass this would look good with or just pics of finished beads using this? Thanks!

I could use some advice to. Grabbed some DV DAP shards, but all I get is mud.

Its cousin Double Amber Purple likes to be white hot, before attempting to strike, and work in an oxidizing flame.

From North Star's web site:
"This color is Van Gogh’s younger twin. Work it VERY hot until it is transparent on the surface. Then cool and watch it begin to turn a dark orange or brown. Depending on if and WHEN you encase it, you will get different colors. If you encase it soon after it begins to darken, you will get blues and greens. If you let the dark brown really develop before you encase, you will get more blues and magentas. Depending on how you treat it after you encase, or not, you may get pinks, rose, lavenders and creams. But you have to get it pretty hot to begin with. Use a very neutral flame."

Hrmm, I got plenty of brown after heating it to clear. But I'm on a Hothead, so no truly neutral flame for me. Wonder if I would have gotten colors had I encased? Seems to read that way.

I know this post is old, but if anyone has this and want to get rid of it, I'd love to get my hands on more of it.
