i'm not sure i totally understand the hoarding concept.....i guess at that point its more of an investment. i think collectively i own 30 pounds of glass at a time.

how much of this is exaggeration, how much of this is not knowing how much a pound really looks like, and how much of this is straight up hoarding goodness????

It's hoarding for me, plain and simple. I'm well aware I can get over 600 flower discs from my 5 pounds, yet it doesn't sound like enough. I do however, have a self imposed 5 lb limit unless it really is a necessity. Like the butter pecan for my mermaids. I have 15 lbs of that

And I still can only get about 700 mermaids out of it..... kind of nervous, lol. I think I made about 500 mermaids last year.

Hell's Bells. Now I want some. I have a transparent Lauscha coral, but I don't believe it has striations.

Bumping this up. Just had the Lauscha gold melon cracking over effetre white experience. Going to have to play with this a bit and also ordered some Lauscha clear and other colors.
Does anybody have any experience with the Lauscha white encased with the Gold Melon? Cracking?

That cracked for me too! sorry. And when I first had cracking problems with the transp. peach over white over 10 years ago, it also cracked over Lauscha white. It didn't seem to make any difference what brand of white it was; the white is just too soft under the stiff transparent.

But if you do a base of one of the Lauscha transparents first, then a thin layer of white, and then the melon pink, it might work. The only thing that worked for me, though, was putting the gold melon pink over another transparent without any white in between, unless it was just dots or stringer decoration on white.
