basic steps

I'll keep this brief but I want to stress something I do keep mentioning:
You really need to be able to make a good clear formula before you can expect to make a good color formula.

Using SP color base is not a panacea for a color formula. Croucher I think ran nine bases, I ran five or six and each was engineered for the colors and additives going into the goop.

The formula listed recently of mine was a glass I derived back around 1976. I messed with that basic stuff over a number of years but finally set it aside for better glass. It really wasn't until I wrote formulas for Spruce Pine about four years back that I came to glasses I really feel settled with. So keep in mind, neither calcium or sodium are your friends, they're just cheap. Fortunately they are all quite replacable.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
