Default Frustration with green tea # 591680

Uggh! I love this color, I really do but no matter where I put it in the flame it develops that smudgy-livery haze. I can't seem to avoid it.

Any suggestions of a different way to work this glass?

Thanks in advance

Duane

Ironic, I just made about 15 beads with it yesterday. You have to work it cooler, if too hot, it turns reddish or smooty. Mine turned out fine without discoloration, try turning your flame down some.

I was going to suggest that, too. I've not used it, but usually that happens because the flame is too hot or your (accidentally, of course ) working too far down in the flame.

I found that it works pretty well with an oxy rich flame - too much fuel and you get reduced areas or a dull look. It is one of my favorite semi-neutral colors

There was a post here recently that said to make a large ball at the end of the rod, then cut it in half, let it fall back on itself and do it again, and the colors will be brighter and more mixed. Just sayinnnnn

When I get the red muddy tones I reheat it in an oxidizing flame and it burns off. Just make sure all your red mud is gone before popping the piece in the kiln.
