Color Is Messy
And, man, I love that name...

This subindex collects the various Color Is Messy posts I've made to date. Color is Messy is a nominally 104 compatible glass with Effetre, and the owner of the firm has gone to what sounds like a great deal of effort to make the glass compatible—I had a fascinating discussion with her about the various tests she'd employed. That said, I know lampworkers who've claim to have had some difficulties, so the usual caveat, try it and see, applies. So far, I've had great luck with it, but my testing got interrupted by the cold last year—I'm looking forward to resuming my experiments with the sample pack I was given.
