Palest pink with a slight blue cast.
Torch: This style may not reveal (or strike to) its target color until fired. Strike this glass to pink by working it in the flame, then cooling it just outside of the flame and then gradually reheating it. Once struck it should be medium to dark pink while it is still hot. If the glass looks white, continue to cool and gradually reheat the glass until it strikes.
The pink is easier to strike if it has been worked in a cooler flame to begin with; try to work with it farther out in the flame, away from the nozzle. When molten, this glass has a low viscosity and can be quite soft, which may result in a blurred edge where it meets other glasses. We advise labeling all striking glasses.
Kiln: Not recommended for kilnforming.
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).
