Details

After first introducing information on how to strike silver colors and create metallic finishes, such as using a neutral flame and monitoring time/temperature relationships, we started to hear that some people missed the "surprise" of opening their kiln door. For all of you that fit into this category, we created Amazon Lagoon. Darker than Havana Moon Lite, this color was designed to put the "surprise" back into working silver borosilicate colors. Every piece will be beautiful, every piece will be different.



Working Tip: Work in neutral flame and have fun, this one is loaded with silver!



Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:

Amazon Lagoon is a very deep cobalt base glass packed with tons of silver. Encasement of the rod in clear will result in trapping pearlescent greens and blues and some golden oranges and cream yellows. Depending on working time and whether the piece is solid or blown, you will see a range of finishes and shifting of colors. In a neutral working atmosphere the silver will come to the surface when not encased in clear. Color ranging from dark blue to yellow green pastel will sometimes have streaks of cool colors on the surface. When your piece is done you can reduce lightly and watch the metallic finish emerge in golds, silvers, greens, bronzes and blues depending on color layer thickness and amount of reduction given.

Super silver saturated!

by -

This blue based color can yield some of the most appealing green/teal/bleach tones in the entire borosilicate palette, reduce for the mother of pearl type sheen on the surface of the glass, oxidize to burn off the silver and bring out more blue. Striking multiple times brings out the best variation of colors. works in all applications, looks great under a light layer of clear
