Here are two slightly different batches of EDP (above).
Ingrid has passed on to me an EDP tutorial she has on her website. She says she will be adding more colour tutorials in the near future, so stay tuned!

EDP is a really pretty purple, but it loves to devitrify (hence the name). I like to work it cool and I only work with it when I’m feeling very patient (I usually like to work things fairly hot and quickly… EDP goes better for me if I turn the flame down and work it slower and cooler). You can encase it to avoid the devit – but only if you encase it completely. Leave one molecule of the stuff exposed and the devit spreads out from there and covers your bead.
Sometimes I actually don’t mind the devit, if it’s a sculptural bead like a goddess, and it’s entirely EDP. I find the devit looks the worst when it spreads overtop of other colours of glass.
