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.
Work in a neutral flame. Cool until the glass is no longer glowing. Expose the glass to a reduction flame, whole keeping it from getting hot. Brief (5-10 seconds) and repeated exposures produces the best results.
