Default What kind of glass is your primary medium?

I screwed up and ordered some glass decorations that is a waaaayyyyy wrong COE for the glass I use, so trying to get an idea of who uses what for RAOGK's! Make sure you post what you voted for.

I have boro, Bullseye, and Moretti and use Moretti the most...how about you?

Just switched to all 96 COE and love it. A few 104 colors that I miss, but overall it was a fantastic move. 400+ colors in 96! Whee!

I love 104, I have quite a bit of Bullseye, and a little 96 and boro. I just can't give up the 104 though - I can't find the reactions I like in any other soft glass...

104...
But I've got a sampling of Bullseye (90) that I love & want more of....
I'm playing with as much of Jess's (Phoenix Glass) COE 96 vintage stuff as I can get my hands on to "PPP" with, just 'cause it's fun & I can play with loads of frit with it...
And sitting up on top of my kitchen cabinet is a bundle of Kinari...(what's the COE on Kinari again?? I know it's *really* soft...I haven't melted it yet...waiting till I can do a bunch & put it right into someone's kiln...hmmm...)
Of course I'll play with anything that my hothead will melt......& I've gotten it to melt some pretty darn big rods of 96 COE vintage stuff! (like 12mm+!)

I am so dense sometimes....I get something stuck in my head and cannot get around it....for some reason I have it in my head Bullseye is 96 instead of 90 and I just bought all of Lynn's short twisties in 96 with nothing to use them on!

Only 104 for me... I would love to play with others, but can't afford to invest into other types now... and my hothead doesn't really play nice with the lower COEs anyways.

About half and half 104 and Bullseye with some 96 thrown in for decorations. I was seriously thinking about switching to all Bullseye when I discovered R4 glass, and now I'm totally hooked on the silver glass's.

I started with 104, probably with the masses. I've just gotten a little 96 and am really liking it. I considered leaving the 104 for Bullseye several years ago but didn't. I wanted some colors (pinks and purples mostly) but didn't want to work with what I could afford. (You know, you've got to have some white, and maybe some black, and some clear and then maybe some of this and that for variety.) Still I kind of wish I had. If I had stopped buying 104 and started building bit by bit I'd have another selection by now, instead of a bunch of basics of 104.

Someday I hope to have a selection of both 90 and 96. Not a huge selection, just so I can create. I really like the colors I see.

I've tinkered with boro but I'm not very good with it. I like how the glass works, I just can't get the colors to strike.

Edit to add, I got some Hawaiian Punch from Karin, and I love it. I was thinking it was 96 but it might be 90. I just keep it by it's self by my kiln and only fondle it some.

I use mostly 104 coe, but have a bit of Bullseye and assorted 96 coe as well. I love the 104!

Mostly 104 for me but I have a good sampling of almost all COE's in my studio... and only wish I had more time to play with it all, especially Bullseye and Boro

I teach for Bullseye and of course they load me up on all of their cool new colors and usually give me something to test that hasn't been released yet. I just taught there last weekend and they let me test a new glass that is going to seriously going to "knock you socks off!!!" OMG it rocks!! But don't be asking for it or call Bullseye and say "Larry was talking about this new glass..." As usual, Bullseye has to get this glass to where they can reproduce it in big quantitiies and that always takes time... just thought I would tease you!

Cheers, Larry
