Fire Lotus is a TAG glass, and there are quite a few vendors that carry it. I'm eager to try it myself! Isn't it gorgeous?

Fire Lotus is a striking silver glass made by TAG. White Lotus is a catalyst type glass that Ron at R4 sells - I think it is made by Effetre but I may be wrong. They are very different.

Yep, I should have connected the dots earlier... Lotus... I have some fire lotus, so this should have been easy guess. However I cant find it from TAG, which is why I didnt realize it is theirs... white lotus sounds very TAG-like name. Need to get some of that!

Thanks for the suggestion re CIM clockwork. It is not a color I would have ever, ever ordered, but I put DH khaos and Kronos over it, plus some violet and lt. turquoise Effetre, cut into all of it with a knife, it looks very cool! Sorry, I don't know how to take and post photos yet, maybe will do that tomorrow. Thank you for this thread, it has been fun experimenting with a DH sampler and some of the base glasses mentioned here.

Gelly sty is good and a strange striking glass called pastel powder pink which I bought way too much of some years ago. Anybody want to buy some? I am using mainly Clio and Kalypso.

I have tried putting the DH colors over white and that actually seems to "deaden" the striking effects. Anyone else noticed that? The bead on the far right is over white. The left one is over gelly sty and the middle one is over pastel powder pink #262. Misc FYI - the middle bead went in the kiln looking like a pretty green blue color. It is more magenta in person.

oh yes, the soft pinks (the ones that are like ivory in softness) --those are good for silvers!

Just whatever you do, don't let Heffalump make any contact with silver glass! Even silver glass on top of clear on heffalump makes it turn a mucousy yellow/brown (it fumes so easily)!

Effetre red purple makes Helios turn purple/blue/grey.

I've gotten some interesting reactions using Mauvelous (personal favorite for floral and raking) and Biscotti. Biscotti tends to fume more, though. Still struggling to find best base for Gaia. Made one set of small earring beads oping Gaia over white that worked well. BUT in was the only time. Suggestions?

Silver plum is not a silver color. It gets its metallic color from a different metal, I think magnesium. It likes oxygen.

Angela Meier taught me this: Base bead in vetrofond mustard or any greenish mustard color. Design with thin stringer of black pearl or nyx. Reduce briefly.

I'm so happy to hear this. I bought some fire lotus & don't know what to do with it.

Love this thread! I'm always looking for suggestions of what to use with my DH glass. Canyon has been my favorite so far.

Anyone have some new discoveries? I feel like I need to dig around and find my Clockwork! I know I have some...just need to find it...

Almost looks like Ossa?

Here are some bases I like currently
CIM Painted Hills
Effertre white with Clio over. I don't seem to need the orange underneath to make it crazy pink
CIM Berry Punch/Berry Mist I love this under Clio too
Opal Yellow is my go to base!

I have some tabby grey and Canyon De Chelly that I think I need to play around with more, good to go thorough this thread again!

Surely not Ossa. You can't work Ossa without having those little white speckles.




For me it looks like Terra.
With a closer look you can see hints of amber where the Terra didn't strike.

Could it be that you have used "Ekho" over Light Topaz on Moretti black? The honey colour between the silver glass and the Moretti black seems to me not being a part of the silver glass.

I was just playing with Fire Lotus on a base of 064 Effetre black. I also added some SIS, and it worked well.

Moretti Sandlewood and Echo stringer is my fav! I'm VERY challenged when it come to silver glass, but this is effortless for me!
