Default Bases for Silver Glass

I started jotting these down last year for my own use,never thinking I was going to post this info here. Just everytime someone would mention what they used as a base for one of their beauties I would take note. So I therefore apologize if you see your favorite here and don't get credit for it. This is only done in the spirit of sharing the info to help someone else. Alot of colors are pretty sparse or non existent so if you feel like sharing what you have had sucess with please feel free to post your favorites. A third of the battle is getting a base that works well. I haven't tested each one of these combos yet,these are other folks opinions. TIM

NYX-Opal Yellow,Moretti Black,Dark Silver Plum,Lt.Violet,Cobalt,Turquoise Leaky Pen,Pale Green,Clear.

PSYCHE River Rock,Ivory,Yellow Ice,Carmel Apple,Straw Yellow,Lt.Silver Plum

I've found Hades and Silver Cinnamon to be the most consistently awesome bases for silver glass. They pretty much work for all the silver glass colours

For Nyx and Psyche I love a very light transparent base. Either clear or a very very pale color - dosn't matter if it is green, purple, or blue. Then I use stringers of Nyx or Psyche over the clear base.

I would add Silver Cinnamon and any blue/green/purple transparent for Psyche, and transparents amber or purple (any shade works nice) for Aion.

I'd love to see a bead with a Hades base and silver glass on top. I finally got some Hades and want to try it.

Silver Cinnamon, silver Rattan and Caramel Apple are fabulous with the silver colors.

Here ya go Tink!
This is Steel Blue - a silver odd from Ron at R4 over Hades


Sissley over Hades


Unknown silver reduction glass (Picasso Blue perhaps) over Hades

I have not found a silver glass yet that does not play really well with Hades.

I agree! I love hades and silver cinnamon with luna 2 and khaos!

and terra totally pops bright bright colors on tongue pink! I find that many of the silver colors like tongue pink...

I LOVE this thread! Great idea! I have been writing down all these things on a white board by my torch.

Fabulous that you remembered to jot these combos down - unlike me, who can't remember what I'm using as I'm using it! Thank you for sharing!

have you tried TAG Tibet yet? It's like the classic boro Amber Purple. Looks great with black, ivory, cobalt, pink (including ASK Lilac Ice) and it's *outrageous* on copper green.

You know I had forgotten to list the "New Kids on the Block",though I think they are only "New" to 104 Silvers. Anyone else had a chance to play with Trautmans Art Glass? They deserve some time,Firebrand is having a ball with them it seems. Does your camera talk to your computer(mine doesn't),would love to see how it Plays Pretty. TIM

It's Trautman Art Glass. Yes it's 104. Paul Trautman was the first person ever to make boro color and now he is carrying it over to soft glass. He is the former owner of Northstar. You can buy it on flamedame.com and we are going to have a quickie silver glass sale this weekend. Probably Fri,Sat, Sunday.

I can add one. Try original DH Elektra over Effetre 049 Straw Yellow. You don't need to strike it or reduce it, just encase it.

Hi! I know this thread is super old but I had to stop torching right around the time when everyone started playing with DH.
Are all these colors that are listed compatible with 104COE (not that I'll ever find 'em all now. )
