How do I use silver pink to get the most out of it? What can I expect? Thanks everyone!

Silver pink is misnamed. It reacts with other colors, but it doesn't turn pink. For that, you need Harry Potter's wand.

Silver pink is also misnamed because it's not a silver glass. It's my favorite go-to color after opal yellow. It's not super reactive (like ivory or tongue pink or powder pink) so it makes a great neutral base color for many other colors and is beautiful with frit blends in the pink and purple families.

Ok, just made a few samples with the frits on hand, one was hyacinth purple. The other two were multi colored. The one with purple I tried reducing and it reacted but instead of purple it was metallic black. So I reheated it thinking the purple looked better. Curious what will come out of the kiln in the morning... The other frit blends didn't react like that.
