A great short demonstration of using a vitrigraph kiln to make murrini.

Bullseye has a really great palette - but you can watch the number of hues and shades explode when you start layering the lighter transparents on top of the opaques.  We have hundreds of samples at Helios - here are just a few showing some of the nuanced shades of orange/brown that are possible.
The best part about this technique is that (unlike pure transparents) the colors pop regardless of back-lighting but have more depth than flat opaques.
