Thankyou Sarah!
I will email you. I don't have a lot of TAG but it will be a real help when I get to using it. Part of the reason I haven't is because I need to know more!
Much appreciated.

Default TAG Spreadsheet

Hi Sara,

Wondering if you got my email. I'm quite sure I sent one, but I can't find a copy, so who knows?

Wanted to thank you for taking the time to do this spreadsheet ...AND ... for sharing it gratis with the rest of us. I'd love a copy. I'm at rosebead@sbcglobal.net.

Thanks.
Barb Rose

Barb: no didn't get your email but sent the file just now via regular email.

Everyone: I just realized that I only cited the working directions for the sample pack of glass I got and there are actually a couple more colors……………… something called Transcendental looks fab and i don't have it, so sorry. i will update this to the entire rod colors as soon as i play with my BIG HONKIN mandrels i just got. 6mm and 10mm baby! dipping was weird and now i fear the hollow tubes will act like the pipes on a jet engine with flames shooting out the undipped end. i fear my "bigger is always better" motto may not be good here. will post in my mandrel thread.

Default TAG with fire opal technique

OK out to the studio and got my notes. I used the following TAG glass with the "fire opal" technique. Technique: black base bead, foil, smears of white hot clear ends of the rod on top of foil and encase and strike. Try Tibet Transcendental, Dali Lotus, Fire Lotus, Dali lama and Tibet. Tibet is very faint and makes a wispy yellowish bead.

Hi, Sara, thanks for doing this!
BTW the Tibet batches vary WIDELY from run to run, batch to batch. I think the most recent batches are the best we have ever made, and would give far more color than the yellow you are getting (above.) Typically I can get Tibet to strike like I would strike a Rubino Oro - lightly in the back of the flame. But it will also strike with white-hot heat, as long as you are not UNstriking it.

jenny, so nice to hear from you. i love your glass! i like to have working directions in alphabetical order at my fingertips since i have usually started a bead and THEN think to figure out the tricks of the glass. the presentation on your website is outstanding but does not lend itself easily to a consolidated info sheet, and in alpha order, that people like me can grab in a panic. i know there is a way to insert photos into an excel spreadsheet which would make my effort and yours a great blend. adding a photo per glass type might make the sheet really sing but it then would be too many pages and a much bigger file. them are the breaks.

i worry that when i add insurance (assurance??) heat so the bead babies won't crack that i am somehow unstriking glass i have just stuck. this has always puzzled me. any thoughts?

Thanks, Sara. I do know what you mean, and I think that your eye will tell you if you are un-striking.

On the Tibet beads, which tend to strike pretty quick anyway, I "take out the insurance" in the stage before the surface details get added. For instance, dot beads. But in a larger, more complex bead I would just encase. The Tibet (and Transcendental) will strike through an encasement more slowly than on the surface, and I can coax out the color under the clear coat while gently and evenly reheating the whole bead.

Sara, I sent an email to you about the spreadsheet, then I read on to find the pdf and txt docs. Ignore the email!

Thanks so much for this.

Sara,
I think I'm brain dead, 'cause I think you may have sent this to me before the holidays. That's what the Merry Season does to my brain, and it isn't getting better with each passing year. Anyway, obviously I haven't had a chance to download and use the file. If you've added any of the colors you mentioned or any new info, I'd love to have the update. Now I'll,just crawl,back into my little hole and hope things get better when the sun comes out here (Cleveland) ...perhaps in April or May.

Best,
Barb Rose

I have had so many requests for the spreadsheet i thought i would see which glass types i left out since i was working from the names of the ones i got as a sample pack. although i am away from my home computer with my original file, i am going to try and get a copy of my spreadsheet to amend and repost it. I misspelled Golden Emerald, sorry, will fix that and add: Blue Buddah2, Clarity, Black Cherry, Deep Purple, Fire Lotus (huge omission!) and Trancendental. Stay tuned.
