Purple Sky

I think it must be purple week, I have discovered Kalypso, and at first I only got a caramel colour out of it but now I know what to do to make it sing! You need to work this glass extremely hot, cool fast alow the glass to turn a deep red then put it at the back of a very hot flame to strike abit more, next turn the flame down a bit but keep the oxygen up, reduce in the middle part of the flame, don't over reduce ! and encase.
