Walnut was a later release. Glass Alchemy was receiving requests to create a color that matched the saturation of Cobalt 5
, but in a brown tone. Recognizing that this was an important color, they 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).Product Specifications:
Each rod is approximately 20" in length and 7mm in diameter.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.”
Glass Alchemy Occasional glass rods do not meet the first quality standards and may consist of varying lengths and diameters. The glass may have slight imperfections such as deviations in color, stones, and/or air. This glass was made with love and care at Glass Alchemy, but it did not make the cut and is now looking for a good home.
