Psyche is strong silver reduction glass in a dark purple base. Depending on the reduction process, Psyche can produce a mirrored or rainbow oil slick appearance. If encased, the luster results in a pearlescent effect.
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.

MY FAVORITE SILVER GLASS
If DH stops making it I don’t want to go on living. Beautiful when encased.

Psyche is one of my favorite DH glass colors. It can reduce to a gorgeous mirror shine and encased, I get the most amazing purple, pink, blue & green with a really lovely mother of pearl shine. Love this glass!
