Bullseye - Light Fuscia Transparent - Striker
• Approximate Diameter: 4-6mm
• Approximate Length: 14"-16"
• COE: 90 Compatible
Light blue-lavender. May have a hint of the struck color. Slight variations in cold and flameworked color from one production run to another.
Torch: This style may not reveal (or strike to) its target color until fired. Work in a cooler, oxidizing atmosphere. Once formed in the flame, if Light Fuchsia has not struck, cool the glass in the flame until it is stable and behaves more like a solid. Gently reheat then cool the mass while looking for its color to deepen. Light Fuchsia strikes more reliably in larger applications, such as a core bead.
Kiln: Rod-only glass style. A linear, streaked design may develop upon firing and may be visible whether fired lengthwise, or on end. Color usually deepens on firing. Possible dark interface reaction with selenium and/or sulfur glasses. Less viscous (softer) than most other glasses. Some gold-bearing striking glasses, like this one, should be fired with a 2 hour hold at 1225°F during the initial stages of the firing cycle. If fired without this hold, they may not strike at all, or they may strike but appear spotty and have a blue-brown cast, as opposed to the desired target color.
The initial rate of heat is not a cri(more...)
