You know you've had a good day at the torch

When Reichenbach 108 - Iris Orange (Raku) just behaves the way you want it too.

Of course this is helped when a person has shared their tips for getting that colour to pop after you have burnt it all out by overworking the bead.

I'm convinced this stuff varies from rod to rod (nevermind batch to batch) - & also reacts according to how the stars are aligned, the phase of the moon & the way one is holding their mouth at the time of working it. But needless to say I am pretty darn happy with this result.

Of course I also say that there is no substitute for natural daylight photography, & others say that studio lights intensify the colours - to that I say "bah humbug"!

may the force be with me
