The opaque Candy colors, like Pink Cadillac, prefer a soft, enveloping flame. While they are not really boily, they do have some air in them which can mimic boil, especially when heated hard and fast. For those of you on sharp and forceful torches in particular we suggest warming in the upper flame before working slowly and allowing the occasional larger air bubbles to escape as you work. While many people have great success with these colors, the opaque Candy color line is known to have a slightly higher COE; please test in your application. Laying over clear and then sculpting is NOT recommended.
COE 33. New TAG Wisteria is far smoother than the earlier batches. This is a very pretty opaque blueish-purple glass: WYSIWYG. Rods are slightly rough, but as you can see in the image, they smooth right out when heated. Work in any atmosphere
The Darth Badger is a non-reactive reddish amber on "the dark side." A darker, more saturated version of the Honey Badger, the Darth is very nice in applications where you want to use an amber very thin and still show amber, or where you just want a darker and richer shade. It is highly saturated with colorants, however, and will boil if heated too fast. Non-reactive and works in any atmosphere, but prefers to be worked higher up in a bushy soft flame.
finished work can range from opaque to translucent to transparent in the same piece from the same rod of color; the milky strike that gives so much visual depth; and the rich color where the milk strike is burned away. Unlike the regular Sl But the biggest difference between the new Dark Blue Slyme and regular green Slyme is the flame -- you will want to use a slightly reducing to neutral flame. Like most colors in the Slyme family, this glass is a little bit soft, meaning the
This is an eye-catching mix of their Blue Stardust and Blu-V recipes. This glass takes a light blue shade and aventurine sparkle from TAG Blue Stardust, and takes a strong blue UV reaction (UVR) from TAG Blu-V. The result is a beautiful UVR color that looks amazing in all types of light. When hit with a UV light, this color has a deep blue glow that pairs very nicely with Pink Proton. Atomic Stardust is a highly stable, smooth working color, and likes an oxidized to neutral flame.
This color is a transparent version of Sea Slyme, and in thicker applications, near reheated areas, and when the color is used under clear, a subtle blue milk strike will appear. In thinner and hotter applications this color will stay transparent and green. Tropical Green is a very smooth working color that bends, pulls, and coils easily. The color is also stable in all flame environments, and will retain its clarity after it is worked. Tropical green is a dynamic color that you can use as a pure transparent green, or bring out its shades of blue to add another dimension in your work.
When TAG made its first foray into the ultraviolet glass field, they picked a color that wasn't everywhere already: blue. Blu-V is a clear glass that looks bright blue under UV tube or LED lights. It does have a few air bubbles. Customers report the glass works smooth in the flame, doesn't boil, and has a good COE. They also say it can be pulled down and maintain decent effects.
