Heck, if I never posted on a bad hair day I'd never get to post!

Like others, in addition to what I checked in the poll, I have a supply of Bullseye (sample pack and Val's pink pack) which I haven't learned to love, and Simax clear boro.

Re: FIXED AGAIN! What kind of glass do you have?

Hey, new pic, Jamilyn! It looks good, though it's not as clear as your other one. Kinda... mysterious.

(Who is that mysterious lady? And where is she going with all that GLASS?)

Re: FIXED AGAIN! What kind of glass do you have?

I use Moretti, Vetrofond, Lauscha, Check, and Bullseye. I'm dying to find a good alternative to Moretti and Vetrofond. It makes me crazy with the lack of availability. I love all the reactive colors. I wish I could find something exciting that is more available. Bullseye just isn't very interesting even though some colors are good, so many are so bland. I wish the Vetrofond factory would get a fire lit under them so that they could get their colors expanded. I also think they made a mistake by giving one US importer an exclusive.

Re: FIXED AGAIN! What kind of glass do you have?

Bullseye 90 (voted "other" in poll) -- I'm trying to keep a single glass studio -- frits, rods, sheet. That way I never have to worry about compatibility.

Although I am loving some of the color reactions people get with Moretti/Effetre (especially that opal yellow).....

Ooh, you have me beat! I have Moretti, Vetrofond, Bullseye, Lauscha, Czech, Spectrum, Youghigheny (sp?), Northstar, Glass Alchemy, Paramax, and now some of Val's Gaffer glass, too! Oh, and also Val's and Alex's frit--I'm addicted. I've never heard of some of yours, like Chameleon and Rooster. Sounds interesting!

Have I had time to use all these? NO! But my internet classes are over in a few days, and then I can concentrate on glass!
