Tips from the Glass Academy: Double Helix – Reduction Guide

Info from Double Helix

The Reducing Sequence:

Work in a neutral flame

Cool until the glow is gone

Create a reduction flame by reducing the oxygen, increasing the propane, or both

Gently reheat in the reduction flame

Experiment with the length of the reduction time and/or repeating the sequence to create different effects.

An oxidizing flame can be used to “erase” some of the reduction effects.
