Product Description

INDIVIDUAL ROD.   Double Helix's Kalypso is an opaque version of Clio. If Clio is like strawberry wine then Kalypso is like raspberries and cream with the shimmer of the summer sun. She reduces, strikes, and maintains her shimmer under an encasing layer.  

Kalypso is designed to be a strong luster glass that also strikes.  In most applications, the strike occurs without any additional effort.  For best results, work Kalypso quite hot when you apply it to the mandrel.  This "resets" the Kalypso, allowing for a clean strike.  After the bead is shaped, allow the glass to cool until the glow is gone.  Then turn up your propane a bit, and pass the bead through the far reaches of the flame, giving it a light and gentle reduction.  Next, encase the bead, melting your clear in a neutral flame.  Take care to avoid burning off the metallic luster.  Melt the clear in using a not-too-intense flame.  The Kalypso should strike as the clear is melted in. It is not recommended that you encase with Aether because of adverse reactions.
