H-118
H-122
H-123a
H-123b

The Ks vary.
K-102 – was playing with the K-65 formula which was the silver saturated Kronos. It should be reduced.

K-105, 108, and 109 – are testing a more opal color. K-108 should be reduced and 105 and 109 you can try either but striking is best.

K-112 – was supposed to be one thing but when Jed came in the next morning he noticed something that was supposed to be in the furnace still sitting on the table! Woops. It should be reduced.

K-113 – is an experiment with a secret ingredient. The one Jed left on the table in K-112. K-113 can be reduced or struck.

K-115 & K-116 – are in betweens. The result of beginning our H testing in our K pots. They should both be struck.

Terra Odds
OG Terra
T-98

Nys Odd – Lusters like regular Nyx but doesn't fade to blue when kiln struck
T-25 – Opaque brown rods that will luster

Also, It boils easily so I found working it far out in the flame and then reducing is the way to go.

Thank you for catching that . . . yes, Hurricane Rumble is a reduction color! Sorry!

Did you get the discounted odd? I got that and it boils so much that I gave up!

Great reference Hayley.

I think I have some Green envy- from before it came on the market. I was told it reduces to a red. Maybe that should be on my list for today.

Haley, I have found that Blue Buddha isn't the same as Cezanne. I bought some thinking it was, and was very disappointed.

Storm - this is only a reference for silver glass and the names, retailers and manufacturers, etc. . . . and not for reactive glass.

Hayley, I think it was Paulas (Flamedame) thread. She was selling BB as Cezanne and the maker of the glass said the formula was different.

Thanks, Cherie . . . I will add a note to the reference! I just looked at her test bead on her site and it does look different from the Cezanne I used.

I always love the glass that won't be reproduced or was a fluke. If anyone has some lying around, I will buy it. I'd love to find more.
Hayley, it was great of you to go through all the work. Thank You!

Wow! You've really done a lot of work to figure all of this out! Thanks for posting this great list, as I'm on a pretty tight budget. When I get my hands on a rod or so, I don't want to blow it, just finding out how to use it.
Thank you very much for the comprehensive list,
ginger

Thank you everyone. I got a couple of PMs regarding getting colors on Khaos. This is what I wrote back - thought I would share it here in the thread for those who may be interested. (This is been posted lots before by others who have had success with striking silver glass.)

The trick to getting colors on all striking silver glass is to heat and cool and heat and cool repeatedly. The first heat must be so hot that the surface of the glass turns translucent (almost droopy) - then cool until the glow is gone (do the under the table test). Reheat starting at the tip of the flame (as not to thermal shock), then bring the bead in closer to normal range, you don't need to heat it as much the second (and subsequent) time. When you cool it again, it should be dark brown. If it's not, then you didn't heat it hot enough the first time (in this case heat it again to translucent).

If you have dark brown after the first strike. Cool and heat again and you should get dark purple, repeated cooling and heating yield blues, greens, yellows, sometimes reds and terra cotta depending on the glass.

You need to play with it - depending how much you heat and how much you cool, you will get different colors.

When I make the beads above - they are about 1 1/4" - by the time I finish shaping the beads, the ends are dark purple/blue. So I just have to play with heating the middle in order to get the colors out.

Lastly, when you get what everyone calls baby poo - you have overstruck the glass. Just start all over by super heating it again. Most striking glass are forgiving so you can start all over. Just remember to get dark brown on first strike!

Hope this helps.

I wanted to thank you so much for giving all this information in one place. I just got my first order of silver glass ($300.00) and then didn't want to waste any of it, saw this thread and it has been just a wonderful thing to have printed out and taped to my work area.
