Default Reichenbach Multicolor

I have some regular, not dark, Reichenbach Multicolor coe104 that I cannot get to do anything other than turn an ugly shade of green. I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to work this glass to bring out the blues and other colors.

What color are the rods? I work it like Raku. I've never seen it go green. Even if I do nothing special to it I get a pretty purple.

Oops, nevermind, I was thinking Dark Multi. Light Multi does go green or greenish blue. I like that color though. I have gotten some purple/pink by encasing it. Get it hot, cool, strike, encase.

When I marver it, I get the best colors, but they usually go away when I remove the chill marks. =(
