    bullseye gives a 50% discount to flameworkers on rod orders over $500. So if you spend over $250 you get nice color for $10-15/lb. Compatible with Schott AR tubing and rod.

    Glass is fucking awesome soft or hard, Torch work or furnace work and we all share a common point we love glass.

    even though most of the world would probly stand by some sort of soft glass or another, i've learned to work with boro and i enjoy it more then soft glass, boro is more forgiving, the colors don't stay true but in my eyes they are also very vibrant and unique. i also think just in terms of clear glass, i don't often see a soft glass that stays as crystal clear and nice when you work it in a torch.

    but thats just me.
    great work comes from letting your evil flow

    I like both each has its pros and cons. I like boro colors but i also like soft glass colors. I like how boro moves for some things i like soft glass for other. I've found working with more than one coe helped change the way i look at glass as a whole.

    Glass is Glass. Boro to beer bottle. They all melt.

    i use whatever is needed for the project, sometimes if i need a certain color i use soft glass for its better selection of color. for beads soft glass. for large sculpture that will be reworked: boro. for pendants and rings or things that will get wear and tear i try to use boro.

    Perhaps its just a lack of understanding on your part but seems unusual to have to break it down on terms of boys and girls, maybe you need a couple trips to the hot shop if you think its about Jewelry.
