Threading Colors and Advice


Here's some tips from Ken Peterson:
I've found that coating the piece with a soft powder then trailing works well. It holds the trail together and keeps it from spreading. That also allows for chemical reactions. In true hippie fashion, try....... iris gold powder + cu ruby trail, or IG powder + red opaque trail, or IG powder + amber trail. If the trails are tight enough and you manipulate the surface enough you can get some really clean results. Groovy........

Want metallic dots? Put the parison in an optic before threading to get the effect.

Try these...Thank Jeff Hoover for this list:
