link to Devardi's site and Golden Coppery Black is about 1/3 of the way down the page. There's even an instructional video showing how to bring up the lustre. It looks so easy, doesn't it.
I'm very disappointed by this glass. I really don't need any more gunmetal, which is what this seems like it's going to be, not to mention I was looking forward to a new glass color just for me as a hothead user. Devardi glass is less expensive than Italian glass or CiM, but it is shocky and boils and pits if it isn't worked cool enough. I've received rods that were mislabeled before from more than one source, so unless something miraculous happens to my technique I'll assume that's what's happened.
In the meantime, my annealer was just delivered and I'll be spending the next month trying to figure out how to program it. Directions so simple a child can program it. Bah! Anyone got a child to program this thing, cuz I'm having VCR flashbacks?
10/29/10 Devardi glass wrote back and explained that I've been doing it wrong. I have to make the bead, turn the gas up to rocket and flash the bead in and out of that once it's cooled to no longer glowing. I'm not used to working with so much gas, since I'm pretty stingy with the MAPP fuel. I gave it a try with the labeled rod this morning and will post a picture of the resulting beads. I definitely had some golden irridescence going into the kiln. Apparently, MAPP gas gives you a golden hue and bottled propane gives a coppery one. I wonder if I'll have to get a tank of propane just to see what it looks like. And I'm still not sure about that rod with the silver smudge.
