Default Jupiter Storm help

This looked interesting, a neutral beige with an orange blush. Except I cant get it to change colour at all. Have heated it to soupy, cooled , heated again. Nothing, nada, nix. Stays stubbornly neutral. Anybody out there had more success? Help!

Lots of info here: http://creationismessy.com/color.aspx?id=288

I didn't click on any links, but someone usually has more details about how they worked the color. Good luck!

Also check this thread out: http://lampworketc.com/forums/showth...hlight=jupiter. Katie Gee's suggestion looked really helpful. I made a couple of Jupiter beads tonight to test her method and will know tomorrow morning how it worked. They looked good going into the kiln.


NEVER MIND - I thought you meant the old Vetrofond Jupiter glass.

Striking it fairly gently worked for me in my test beads. It may also depend how large your bead is? I didn't attempt to strike my spacers at all and they are all greyish, but the larger beads did. I did a pressed heart and a gremlin, so they were in and out of the flame but not reheated back to soupy.

For those who like coe 96 Gaffer has a glass that starts beige and turns a peach orange color when it strikes. It's a neat effect in frit. The number in G-172 Mushroom.

I played with Jupiter the other day. I got a lot of color out of it (see below) but maybe because I'm on a Hothead? What I found is getting it pretty hot seems to reset it to greyish, and a gentle reheating brings out the orange.

Or maybe it's because the HH runs a more reductionish flame LOL I dunno.
