Default Old vs. New EDP

I keep reading posts that disucss this but nothing that describes and differences between them. The problem is that one cannot search on EDP, so can someone tell me what changed? Any photos to share? I don't use ita lot because of the devitrification - although I been successful with it - at times.

EDP is EDP it is still hand made so the variations are per batch, that is the OLD batch vs NEW batch

I have a couple of pounds and it ranges in color and amount of concentric rings in the rod. I purchased it from !ngrid and she was kinda known as the EDP queen before she gave up lampworking. One thing she told me was to BUY IT IN PERSON!



If you look you can see that some rods have a lot more light color than dark. you want the rod with more dark color/rings X

Hi Debbie,

Just wanted to share a tip because the inability to search for 3-letter words used to frustrate me too. You can search for EDP and other 3-letter words on LE if you just add an * to the end, i.e. "EDP*"

The asterisk turns any search term into a "wild" search and you can use it as the 4th character when you're searching for 3-letter words or acronyms that are followed by a space.

Here is the little bit that I know about Old EDP. It is one of the softest Effetre glasses out there and it is reactive with certain colors and so it makes for a decent component in a twistie. I have never used the new EDP and I am afraid to buy it. But with China restricting their "rare earths" we are going to see more and more colors change as they have to change ingredients.

I thought I had read that EDP was now being machine made and no longer hand pulled.
Please correct me if I am wrong about this. I do not want to give out false information. I will go and edit the post in which I have posted this information in and apologize if so.

I do agree that the darker colors and rings are very important.

I think there is a hand pulled version, a machine pulled version, and a few months ago a slew of Sedona? was accidentally sold as EDP leading people to believe that the formula had been, uhh, reformulated... but it was just the wrong glass.

Thanks Jamie Lynne, I was under the impression it was all going to be machine pulled now as well as many colors like OY, DSP and ...and well so many others.

Wondering how much it was going to change the glass characteristics.
If they are going to continue to offer both, even at a higher price, all is well.
I don't work soft glass very much anymore and do have a pretty good stock of my favorite colors, but would still like to know this information.

How to deal with the devit... http://frantznewsletter.com/?p=1494

Hopefully you can see how much this varies in rods and goes from a purpleish grey to violet
