Thank you so much.
As said in another tut thread, these 'old' threads go on to help new generations of lampworkers, and that is just wonderful.
Very much appreciated

I made a short tutorial on Pressed Lentils and SSL about a month ago, it was posted in the tips and techniques and questions area.

I thought I should add a link to it in this thread also for anyone who might be interested in viewing it.

Hope it helps and maybe it wont get so lost.

Thanks so much Shawn T for all the info & the pics are wonderful. You've given me so much inspiration & ideas for different beads. One thing I'm confused about is the RAKU. Can you get the colours to come out with the rod or is it only the frit? I've never seen anything written about RAKU rods. Also, is the frit 104 coe or another coe? Canyou get the colours from Boro frit too? I,too wpold like to know about mosaic green glass. Who makes it & is it 104 coe & is it transparent or opaque. I't a beautiful green. I hope you can help & thanks so much for all the info etc. Love you for sharing.

Annette,
When you use the RAKU you sure can use the rods and pull them into stringers to make lines, dots, scroll work on any beads. It won't work so well to make the beads I have pictured above as they are swirled with frit colors, unless you crush the rods into frit. You can use 104 RAKU but I have always used 96 coe with my 104. Just remember to use very little and you will be fine mixing the two of them. Try RAKU with a brown 104 base, it makes it easy to for the colors to pop, and I always have really good luck with brown especially 444 as a base.
One more thing, I have better luck with regular RAKU not the Dark RAKU.

If you need or want suggestions with boro frit, please let me know, as I now work mostly in boro.

As for the Mosaic Green I used an Opaque color, although they did make a Mosaic Green in Transparent also. I wrote these tips and tricks back in 2004, and really should go back and fix my typo's
It looks like it might only available in transparent now, I will look at other vendors and see if I can find it in opaque.



Glad they have inspired you and I will always answer any questions anyone has on them.
Shawn

Thanks so much Shawn T. I did make some frit from the 104 rods but haven"t had time to try it yet. What is the brown 444 or is it 104? Also I ordered the transparent green mosaic so I'll see if there is any reaction from it. It looks like it's opaque, with the dark streaks through it, but may not look the same when I get it. Thanks for answering my questions & please wish me luck as I haven't had much lately & that would really help my depression when things don't work. Happy lamping.

Beware of blowflies when you have very sligtly warm glass around. I was just making some frit & when I took the rod out of the iced water, a small piece broke off the rod so I layed it on the bench. Then a blow fly landed on the piece of glass & refused to move. A few seconds later it flew away. Then I noticed what looked like a crumb on the glass. I looked at it with my magnifying glass & found it had just layed magots. I always thought they only layed them on a food source. Weird or what ???????
