Helios is a golden-yellow silver-reduction glass that develops a metallic luster when reduced. Pink-tinged highlights develop with repeated reduction. Helios works best on the surface of the bead.
Work in a neutral flame. Cool until the glass is no longer glowing. Expose the glass to a reduction flame, while keeping it from getting hot. Brief (5-10 seconds) and repeated exposures produces the best results.
See our How To section for more detailed working information and tips on using our reduction colors.
Our frit is run through a magnet trap to remove any metal particles from the crushing equipment and is then washed to remove the glass powder from the fine, medium and coarse. Sold in 2 oz quantities.
