You will need to have your pot filled with at least 50% clear plus stick with lighter shades of transparent glass!

Avoid reds, and pay attention to not mix reactive colors (or at least separate them from each other with a layer of clear).

In addition to reds...orange and yellow transparents will have a tendency to opalize at pot melt temperatures. So, unless you’d like this effect, you should avoid these colors.
