Details

Paul occasionally tries to recreate one of his old favorite colors, White Dwarf, without using any sintered glass. We think this is the one. It's not quite as opaque as Stag, but Dwarf White is very smooth and creamy, docile and dense, without Stag's texture. And, like all of the TAG whites, Dwarf resists boiling once it is brought up to the melting point in a cooler flame, and it is not particularly sensitive to flame atmosphere.

requires patience

by -

I have noticed a lot of trapped air in much of the dwarf white I bought from TAG, I called and they gave me a break on some other color, but even the good sticks required a fair amount of preheating and very gentle working (more than your typical white) it does boil fairly easy and lookes horrid if it does. However. if you are patient (and perhaps a touch lucky) the results are incomparable.

This color works well in the flame. Melts nice and smooth. Doesn't boil easily. However it has checked in every piece I've used it in. Some have come out of the kiln checked. Some have checked a day or two later. None of the glass I was using was odds or seconds. I love the color, I just wish I could use it with something other than itself.
