Default Gold fuming

hello I'm pretty new to glass and just got my set up recently. I have been struggling with fuming gold, I understand I'm supposed to use oxidizing flame but no matterhow big or small I make the flame i don't get much fume. Ive read tons of posts and watched videos with no use, everyone talks about the gold dancing when its right but i have yet to get it to do that. Any help or suggestions appreciated!

Step away from the posts and videos. The advice is generally worth what you paid for it. Who said you should be using a highly oxidizing flame? I have been fuming gold and silver for only 8 years and I dont post videos so maybe you should ignore this but I start by adjusting in a very small neutral flame and then backing off the center oxygen until the tips of the candles are just going fuzzy. This is on a Mirage centerfire whcih is indentical to the Lynx. If you would like to see the result look me up on facebook under Larry Cazes.

Beautiful work Larry! I love it, i am curious how you got those swirls? I was finally able to get gold to start working for me, now I want to try some designs I havent done yet! I've done plenty of implosuons but would love to try and get some spacey effects! Attached are a couple I've done!

Nice! Glad I could help. Now that you have a good start on the mechanics try to blaze your own aesthetic path with it. Have fun with it!
