Item Description:

Melia 2 is a chrome-free reformulation of Melia, a teal version of the Arke, Iris, and Iaso family. Different metallic effects are possible depending on the reduction techniques you use. Melia 2 retains its luster under clear encasement. An opaque celadon blue can develop with extended annealing, about one hour at 950F. Lower annealing temperatures and/or shorter times maintain the transparent teal.

For all reduction techniques, cool the glass before reducing and keep the glass from overheating.

Rainbow iridescent; use a large brush reduction flame, briefly pass the glass right through the candles, repeating until the colors develop.

Mirrored silver luster; rotate the bead further out in a reduction flame. Repeat until the desired luster is visible.

Textured satin; repeatedly pass the bead through the very farthest reaches of the reduction flame without letting the bead get hot again.

Phaeton works three ways:

1) Reduced on the surface

2) Reduced and encased

3) Reset, reduced and encased.
