    Should work OK. Be interesting to see the light diffusion.
    Cheers

    Rather than try to compare light I figured it would be better to compare shadows.
    The first picture was from 5 or 6 attempts and the shadow was a lot sharper than the picture shows. The second was the first and only snap.

    The light with the Vitreosil glass is far more pleasant giving surprisingly almost the same light output.

    @Tony Press , I have seen so many Vitreosils with that exact same damage that I am convinced it is from people putting the glass on or off without the care needed. They can take extreme abuse with the heat but they don't like to be treated rough.

    Not the only use for Vitreosil glass either.
