Details

Dragon's Eye was developed originally for the beaders who are on constant search for a new color to diversify their creations. To meet the challenge we created a new green tone. We them added enough color changing silver to allow organic shifts in the color without overpowering the green or creating mud, and continue to transmit light without appearing transparent. This is a fantastic surface color that has a wide range of possibilities.



Working Tip: Flame or kiln strike at 1075° F. Work neutral; reduce at end for metallic effects.



Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:



This color can be worked either unencased or encased. When working this color unencased I advise using a flame that has a bit more oxygen in the mix than your normal settings.

This will allow you to use reduction properly at the end of the piece by increasing the amount of propane in your torch flame. Through reduction your transparent green base glass will push out colors ranging from creamy blues and greens to yellows, oranges, and purples to a metallic rainbow iridescence. Encasement of rod will yield softer tones over green depending on flame settings during the encasement process.

Very interesting results

This color yields beautiful light blues and greens when oxidized, the rod color starts out as teal and the silver in it makes it opaque as you strike it. When encased it comes out as a nice milky teal, similar to aquatic carnival

My #1 Color

Seriously, I can't work without this color. I almost cried when I thought I missed out this year during the sale. (I didn't.) From green to blue to peach, there is so much versatility here for nature stuff that I suck it up like water.
