Here's another set on eBay done with Terranova2. I'm simply amazed at all the different colors, striations and patterns that you can get with this glass. I heated the glass up to the point that I had a hard time keeping it on the mandrel. As I was heating it I could see the striations form on the surface. I kept heating until it separated so much that I also got little "blobs" along with the striations. I then pulled it out of the flame and kept rotating the bead as it cooled. In the mean time, I heated up my rod of clear. As soon as the TNT turned a light brown I put it in the back of the flame until it turned a dark red brown and then encased. I had no problems with it restriking or lightening while I was melting in the clear and shaping. If you haven't tried this glass yet....you are missing out!
