For discussion of processes related to using Bullseye glass, including kilnforming and kilncasting, torchwork, blowing and stained glass.
Hello! Can anyone confirm or otherwise that there are more fine bubbles in bullseye crystal clear casting billet than there are in plain clear casting billet? I need a fairly clear optical result for my project (reverse intaglio casting), and it's my observation that my current stock of clear has less bubbles than crystal clear. Is this just a co-incidence or is it actually a thing? I want to know before I make another order. Many thanks.

Billets will trap fewer bubbles than Crystal Clear cullet.

MK Is right, the billets are your best option for the clearest, most bubble free casting.The nature of the hand made product can give you a little variation from a batch to another but it is maintained within the same range of acceptability. The difference between the 1401 and 1101 is a color difference more than any optical clarity. I hope this helps. Geraldine
