Walnut was a later release. We were receiving many requests to create a color that matched the saturation of Cobalt-5 in a brown tone. Recognizing that this was an important color, we did several months of development work and were very pleased to introduce Walnut. A deep rich opaque brown, this color works well in many applications and has become an important part of our lineup.

Working Tip: Work in neutral flame to avoid reduction (gray wisps).

Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
This color is a saturated what you see is what you get opaque deep brown. It works very nicely in all flame atmospheres and in both blown and solid work. It melts into itself easily and is great for detail applied by stringers and in larger applications. Walnut seems opaque but when blown thin or applied in very thin stringers it will show its translucent quality. It can be worked for long periods of time without encasement and with heavy manipulation. This is one of the staple colors in the earth toned palette Glass Alchemy has to offer.

Nice dark brown

by -

If you need a deep opaque brown, this is a good one. Nice and creamy. Works well as a color for hair. Darker than chocolate crayon.

great sheen on this brown

by -

I like the finished sheen on this dark walnut brown. It can be pulled thin in stringers, encased, kilned hot without checking. What you see is what you get with this color. Mix down with clear or a mixture of silverstrike 3/5 and clear for some of the most interesting brown colors.
