Sea Slyme is very workable. A milky blue-green, it fills part of the spectrum between the new Blue Slyme and regular Slyme. Like anything in the Slyme family, finished work can range from opaque to translucent to transparent in the same piece from the same rod. The Sea Slyme has the milky strike you know and love but it's more teal than the original. It can thin to transparent very easily, especially when you put it over clear or you can use it thicker for a more milky seafoam aqua green color.
Sea Slyme keeps a bit more of its color under clear encasement, especially where thicker -- though it is mostly a ghostly white like regular Slyme in thin honeycombs. Sea Slyme likes a soft and bushy flame, like everything in the Slyme family. You will want to use a bushy neutral-to-slightly reducing flame with the Sea Slyme. Like the rest of the Slymes this glass is a little bit soft, meaning the COE is a little bit high, maybe a point, point and a half. This is the same as Slyme, Dense Slyme 3, Satin Slyme and Pink Slyme, and all the opaque candy colors, Pink Caddy, Wisteria and Kiwi.
Trautman Art Glass
Trautman Art Glass (TAG) makes high quality colored borosilicate and soft glass, by hand in small batches.
Trautman Art Glass is the latest venture of Paul Trautman. Paul conceived, designed and built the world’s first commercial operation to manufacture colored borosilicate rod glass in the mid-1980s. Paul Trautman's Northstar Glassworks set the standard for modern borosilicate color production, and Paul pioneering recipes for hard-to-achieve colors.
Now Paul is back perfecting his recipes for new colors and old favorites under the TAG label. An innovator and experimenter Paul is also creating soft (104 COE) colored glass completely compatible with the Moretti/Effetre Italian 104 glass lines.
