Cinnabar Opalescent - Striker - Bullseye (COE 90)
• Approximate Diameter: 4-6mm
• Approximate Length: 14"-16"
• COE: 90 Compatible
Torch: This style may not reveal (or strike to) its target color until fired. Depending on the heatwork of the glass, as indicated by color when it is put into an annealing kiln, a range of colors may be achieved. If this glass is put into an annealing kiln with a deep brown hue, a target Cinnabar color will result in the finished piece. If it is very light beige, as opposed to deep brown, and the desired result is Cinnabar, gradually cool and reheat the glass without bringing it to a soft state. Look for it to turn deep brown and then put it into an annealing kiln.
Kiln: Lighter color and greater opacity than in sheet glass form. Rod color is close to Burnt Orange Opalescent after a full fuse firing.
Rods are pulled from re-melted Bullseye Compatible sheet glass. Rod is sold in lengths of approximately 18in. (450 mm) and 4-6mm in diameter. Bullseye rods are graded either as F (recommended for both kilnwork and torchwork) or T (recommended for torchwork only).
