Default Mixing coe 96 and 104

I did a dopey thing. I was cleaning up and organizing my glass for the lampworking season (which exists when you live in the northeast and torch in an unheated garage!) and I sorted out all my colors--and accidentally mixed some Caliente cane in with the rest of my 104. Of course it was unlabelled, and of course i don't exactly remember what colors I had...

So what's going to happen when I use the two together? Any chance of compatibility? Or am I going to have to sort out my Caliente by which beads turn to frit?

Sigh. Can't believe I did this...

Yeah, I'm afraid it's going to be pretty fritty experience.

But doesn't the Caliente have a veiled appearance?? Couldn't you just tell them apart? What othe 104 is it mixed in with?

Caliente veiled cane looks totally different than any 104 I've ever seen.

So maybe there is hope! Can anyone post a few pics of Caliente cane to remind me what I am looking for?

*most* caliente looks sort of "whispy" doesn't it?? (I don't have any, I've just got gail's veiled cane..but don't they look kind of similar?)

And...other than that, all I can think of is....make a whole lot of either single color spacers with a bit of frit on 'em....or a whole lot of hollows, or pressed beads, or whatever..."single color" being the key term!!

If it is veiled like mine, when you look at it from the end, the inside will be clear, and will only have color in a ring (think rings in a chopped tree trunk, but only one).-Gail

AnnMarie can you take a pic of the rod and post it? MOST of my cane was veiled and it had several colour "rings" in it if you looked at the end. Also when you work it in the flame it takes much longer to melt then the 104 coe glass.
