Experimenting with Reichenbach Dark Multicolor Rods

Posted on

0 Comments

Reichenbach Dark Multicolor CoE 94(+/-2) RW0736 is the most wonderful glass, it is really easy to use and you don't have to do anything special with it to produce a variety of interesting colours, including deep red, purple, blue and green. Dark Multicolor looks great on its own, etched or encased in clear, and works really well with other colours.

A little experimenting to see how Reichenbach Dark Multicolor works with other colours.

A mixture of beautiful colours, including reddish purples, blues, greens and creams when using just two different glass colours (Vanilla and Dark Mutlicolor). The combination of pure silver foil has really added something special and enriched these colours.

Ingredients

Reichenbach Vanilla Rod

Reichenbach Dark Multicolor Rod

Reichenbach Dark Multicolor Frit K0

Silver Foil

Bead Press

 

How to Make

1. Using the Vanilla rod make a base that fills the bead press to about 3/4, you have to leave some room for the Dark Multicolor.

2. Using the Dark Multicolor rod, make a thick line going all the way accross one end of the bead and melt it in. Repress the bead to make sure that there is enough glass to fill the bead press. If there is not, add a little more Vanilla until the glass fills the bead press.

3. Roll the bead in a strip of silver foil and melt in.

4. Melt the bead well and use gravity to swirl the bead. Repress the bead.

5. Roll one end of the bead in Dark Multicolor K0 frit and add a few dots of Dark Multicolor to the other end of the bead using the rod.

6. Melt in and repress.

The combination of Gaffer White and Reichenbach Dark Multicolor in these gravity swirl beads has produced lovely tones of deep purples, reds and greys. The Dark Multicolor has slightly soaked into the White, producing a greyish tint to the white, which is very appealing.
