dichro

We’re biased, of course, as this blog is from Mrs Wellthisiswhatithink, but it’s a really interesting article about an utterly beautiful product and we thought it was well worth sharing.

Enjoy!

Includes links to classes where you can come along and learn to work with the glass yourself. Such fun 🙂

    The first time I ever saw dichroic glass was on the ends of a pair of ebony knitting needles, and I was hooked. Of course it is pricey (darn it), but it’s easy to understand why, even if you don’t know all the technical stull. The penny just dropped that the effect is similar to painting with interference paints such as https://www.goldenpaints.com/products/colors/interference-colors As the manufacturer says, the “flip” effect is stronger on white. But on black the colors really pop, and if it’s an abstract, the effect can be just “wow.”
