Artist Description by Mike Shelbo
Until recently I had not used Rasta Gold Crayon more than once or twice and now it will never be left out of my palette. It works smooth and creamy when not encased in clear and is not prone to easy boiling. Working Rasta Gold in solid and blown work is great because the color is so dense. It lends well to heavy manipulation and stretching. I will mostly work this color in the center to outer region of the flame but for quick heats with a sharper hotter flame you can bring Rasta Gold Crayon close to the torch tip as long as you move the rod while heating and do not overheat one small spot in particular. Try moving the rod away from the torch tip while running a sharp hot flame if you are trying to weld or spot heat for detail and you want a perfect melt. This color compliments and contrasts well with Clover, 444 and Green Sparkle, 458 as well as many opaque and transparent Glass Alchemy Cobalts and Blues, as well as the other warm Glass Alchemy Crayon colors.
