Amber Purple - Fore Powder Frit - 16oz. - Northstar
Northstar Fore Powder is a byproduct of frit production. Fore Powder is a very fine crushed up glass with a range of grit size from 70-100 mesh.
Of the striking colors in the borosilicate palette the Amber/purples are some of the most exciting. NS013 is the first in a series of five Amber/Purple colors. It is well suited for sculpture and moderately thin blown work. The color can produce pale yellows to ambers to a deep purple. To yield the most vibrant purples, work in a hot neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Reduction will affect the strike. Try encasing your favorite Amber/Purple with NS032 Violet or NS031 Lavender. To enhance NS013 Amber Purple try backing it with NS054 Star White.
