Fun with Gaffer Green Luster
« on: February 05, 2019, 05:28:13 PM »
Eben Horton: I like to do r-61 powder with gaffer green luster powder on top. The reactions look like pools of water on a white glacier.

After you apply the powder let the piece get very cold and then stick it into the path of your glory hole burner's flame. (Higher velocity round burners are best) and get it wicked hot. Pull it out, and marver it, then blow it out.  Don't use gaffer enamel white for this. It's too soft.

Eric Trulson: It has another good color reaction when combined with r-232 (cranberry). They form a nice straw/gold sort of color wherever they're given a chance to melt together.

Eben again: Take a sifter and dust the lightest coating of copper ruby power over the 2nd to last gather and then apply that green lustre over it. nice reactions.
