Effetre Metallic Black vs. Dark Silver Plum
I decided to try Effetre dark silver plum instead, which is slightly less expensive but more importantly, not at all a pain to work with. Quite the opposite. It melts like butter, doesn't go shooting rod ends all over the table, doesn't boil or spark and develops a metallic shine when I want it to and not before. I used the machine made version because I seem to have gone senile and ordered it twice in a row last year and have lots of it. There is a difference between how the machine made version reacts in the flame and how the handmade one does but it is more readily apparent with dual fuel torches. On the hothead, it forms a matte luster easily.
