Alright so after a cooling down for an hour (I was so impatient), I realized that it's time for the truth.
The "After" pic:
Here you can see a little warmth, which I am so happy about.
Here is another photo where it can still be glassy, but significantly less so now.
VERDICT: I love the way it turned out. I think that the nature of the cut of the Asscher makes it easy for it to look "glassy", but I have minimized that CZ look through baking it for 2 hours at 400 degrees. I am satisfied with it, and can now rock it a lot more comfortably. After all, I did not shell out $100+ for something that I cannot wear. ^_^
