Taxco Silver Turquoise

  • The beads in this image show the iridescent effects of reducing this glass with ZERO oxygen in a large, bushy propane flame. Beads are a base of Vetrofond black and Moretti ivory, encased in Taxco and reduced.
  • The bead on the upper left was lightly reduced, and it's shine was retained under the encasing clear dot. The bead on the right shows some clouding. Taxco tends to develop a pearlescent-to-whitish cloud effect when lightly reduced WITH some oxygen. The bead on the lower left shows the terra cotta red you can get from heavily, repeatedly reducing Taxco in a flame that retains some oxygen.

Product Description

Taxco (pronounced TASS-ko) is named for the town in Mexico most renowned for combining silver and turquoise. Taxco is a reactive silvered glass that reduces. This lovely turquoise was the most popular of our recent batch of 104 experimental colors; we begged for more, so Paul has agreed to make it the ninth in our regular line of 104 colors.

The beads in this image show the iridescent effects of reducing this glass with ZERO oxygen in a large, bushy propane flame. Beads are a base of Vetrofond black and Moretti ivory, encased in Taxco and reduced.

These rods are approximately 5mm (± 1mm) diameter and 300mm long.
