Terra 2 is an opaque color with some speckling in the same family as Okeanos. They can reduce or strike. Based on test batches, TE-317, TE-320 and TE-362.
For reducing, work in a neutral flame, cool, then reduce, encase if desired. For striking, reset, cool then strike.
Our second quality rods are less than perfect in shape. They may be too large, too small, too short, chipped, twisted or have an inclusion. They have all passed both our compatibility test and our color test, just not our pretty rod test.
