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.
There are approximately 10 rods per pound.
