Oh yes, I feel your pain. "Color Pain" that is.

I used to use Gaffer almost exclusively, but don't have any alternate color suggestions for you right now. I have been without a shop for a few years now and am finally starting the process building a new one again.

It sounds like you'll have to try some other brands. I'd normally suggest switching to a new base clear, but if the other gaffer colors are not gelling well with the G176, then that is not likely to work.

Just remember in the old days there was not the wide availability of color and clear options we have today... (trying to keep things positive) ;-) Trial and error is a still a part of it, right?

Bummer that they changed the formula on you.

Good luck!
Donovan

Thanks for responding Donovan. Are you using Gaffer Reds? I mix the Vermillion frit with oranges and yellows and previous to the change, they all pretty much melted at the same rate. Now the Vermillion stays as it's original frit shape when I jimmy twist it up, while the other colors stretch out nicely. Have you had any issues with Gaffer Reds lately?

Hi Daniel
No suggestions here.. I use gaffer as well.. but just curious what the change you are experiencing is? Does it burn out?

Go To: Subject: Contemporary Glass Painting and Layering
6th - 10th June 2016

This course led by Jeff Zimmer is about creating three dimensional images on glass using both traditional and photographic approaches. We will exploit the transparency of glass and layer techniques and images to collage and create a sense of space. We will use hand painted enamels, photo-sensitive sandblast resists and printer transfers.

Go To: Subject: Concept, Context, Connection with Carrie Fertig
11th – 15th April 2016 Cost £696

This concept-driven skills class will use clear borosilicate flame-worked glass for the development of ideas: gaining and changing meaning from context; and using components as a tool of connection. Beginning with solid glass rods and moving quickly to blowing sculpture from multiple tubes, we will cover methods to increase scale including hand torch use for large-scale work.

Gaffer just changed the formula to my favorite G-176 Vermillion. I'm blowing with the new 2.0 Premium Nuggets. Looking for a rich, hot, opaque red replacement for my new staple. Any suggestions?
