    Default CBS vs Dichroic Alchemy

    Ive orderd a 1/4 sheet of Dichroic Alchemy and it is really cool, works great. I noticed CBS is cheaper and was wondering if anyone had any experience with both. I have no experience with CBS.

    They did when we at Trev's Glass started having ours made there.
    Little background of CBS we were told by them a beginning They made
    dicro for the space station and had scraps and some one came and asked
    if they could have the scraps and they made pendants and sold them up at Venice Beach
    so CBS decided to make dicro for glass blowers too and that is why we have
    dicro available now. Always loved that story. I have been there seeing the
    machine that makes it.

    Dicro is ok but my helper and I like opals and crushed opals a lot more.

    your linework is naive maybe try some fuming?

    ^ That's not dichroic, it's a iridized coating.

    Boro crow looks different , because it is different.

    Iridized coatings are a little less bling, little more prone to burn out unless it's got a thick coating... And all borocrow is Asian tube stock.
