Triple Passion - Glass Alchemy
Working Tip: Get this color white hot to erase the striking history. A variety of effects are achievable depending on how long you flame/kiln strike.
Each rod is approximately 20" in length and 7mm in diameter.
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"You know it, you love it, and you can use it so many ways! Triple Passion is a striking color full of silver goodness.
This means that as your translucent base glass shifts from a golden yellow to amber and into purples and violets you will also see a reaction from the silver adding in blue and green and purple hues. To best understand how this will work as you make your piece, heat your color rod to a molten state, let it cool, then with a normal working flame heat for a second at a time and pause in between to watch results. The striking happens quickly and that is why short exposure increments will yield large differences.
Encase with clear to trap luster and pearlescent qualities. Color layer thickness will determine final color and ability to control finishing effects."

This is an extremely colorful strike that really pops over white or pink. Similar to amber purple but flame and kiln strikes more, making it a deeper and more interesting color. I find the violet hues to be very appealing with this color. Can be encased, works great over other colors and under GA's new line of sparkles. Kiln striking at 1070 for 30 minutes really deepens the purples.
