Default DH Murrini's

I bought some DH murrini seconds, but I don't understand how to get anything but mud out of them. They are made with both striking and reducing colors, so what do I do? strike then reduce? Reduce then strike? dunno. Anyone had success?

Have you watched the video on the DH website? If not, here is a video they posted on their youtube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqaYtXKeIyk

For me, I:
Heat, tap, heat tap, repeat until they are on and once they are, if they have lost their color I allow to cool a bit, then reheat just the murrini to clear, then strike as needed, and last thing if I remember I allow to cool a bit, then put a little reduction flame to them.

I am sometimes more successful than others, but it always makes me smile when they are pretty!

Thanks Eileen, I hadn't seen that video. I will try your suggestion of striking then reducing and see what happens.

Hayley has a video on her Envision website where she uses them if I'm not mistaken. I think I saw it after you posted this thread. http://envisionsf.com/
