    It's a relative biggie at 19cm high x 17cm diameter. The murine give the impression of multiple flower heads.

      Nice one!!

      Thanks, Craig, it is almost satin. I think the final layer before iridising was satin to give the less mirrored effect. What do you think?
    3. welzebub, 6 years ago
      I am not 100% sure. It is possible that the application of the chemicals used to create iridescence also gives the glass a bit of a satin look.

      Satin glass itself is generally produced using hydrofluoric acid or hydrofluoric acid fumes.

      According to the Corning Museum of Glass:
      "On certain 19th- and 20th-century glasses, iridescence is a deliberate effect achieved by the introduction of metallic substances into the batch or by spraying the surface with stannous chloride or lead chloride and reheating it in a reducing atmosphere."

      That definition, and many useful glass terms can be found here:

      I believe the satin type iridation is due to different process... it's basically baked in a chamber with metallic vapour for long time instead of just blown over. (in that case I believe you would get more reflective, mirror like iridescence).

      does anybody know of some good resources for info on this subject? I was looking for it some time ago and did not come up with anything good.
    5. Lustrousstone Lustrousstone, 6 years ago
      The carnival glass folk believe the glossiness/satination of the iridescence is temperature related. Iridising affects the surface layers of the glass so the glass must be very hot. Satination/frosting is a cold process, so it would be unlikely before hot work/treatment was finished. Enamelling is one treatment applied to cold glass that then requires reheating, but to a relatively low temperature, and it doesn't actually affect the glass; the enamel just becomes well stuck on
