Im a little stuck on these dichro galaxies. some times they turn out alright the other times they come out looking like snow with no color. do u coat the dichro in clear and twist, then add to your gather? or do you melt your gather to the piece of dichro and then twist?

add the dichro to clear, twist, then add i large gather of clear to lens it out...
the key is to only heat it enough to get the glass moving... if it looks like snow, you burned the dichro...
