Jess's 96 Coe is EASY to keep separate--just keep it in the shipping boxes she uses--they're ROD LENGTH!!! & they reclose easily!!! I wash all my "dirty shorts" & assorted packs I buy from her when she has a bargain sale (ok, now you know my dirty little secret) & just put them back in the box--easy storage & easy to keep separate from my little stash of BE90 (in a toolbox, about 6#) & my bigger stash of Lauscha (about 10#, sitting on the shelf) & my better stash of "normal" 104 (in a picnic basket
) Not gonna mention the Kinari I own, but have never melted because I need a kiln--someone would have to re-program to anneal it for me--and that would be too much to ask
(I've got um, a couple pounds, in the closet, safely wrapped in bubble wrap
Anyway....Jess's shorts, odds & NON-odds melt BEAUTIFULLY with frit & make the BEST PPP glass & I've gotten gorgeous focals out of them & lovely purple hearts
& the white stays white (awesome for frit beads, just awesome!) & fantastic for making pressed beads! press, frit, press! yay! I just clear off my table & pull out some frit & the "Jess's glass box" & I'm good to go--I know everything is ~96
Yes, I am a soft glass freak. If it melts on a hothead, I want it.
