Of course this can't be correct, but I know some folks who use his additives with recycled glass and swear by them. Specifically the guys who run the shop at Soneva Fushi in the Maldives melt bottle glass and add Thornton's mix and they can combine the resulting clear with commercial color. They've hosted lots of top-tier artists at their studio and the finished work seems to be fine. I'm as shocked as anyone, and I'm sure the bottles have to be clear and from the same manufacturer or you'd end up with a cordy mess that's not even compatible with itself. But we should get someone who uses the additives to weigh in since it does seem impossible.
