Bullseye - Pumpkin Orange Opalescent - Striker
• Approximate Diameter: 4-6mm
• Approximate Length: 14"-16"
• COE: 90 Compatible
In cold rod form, the color can vary even within the same production run.
Torch: This style may not reveal (or strike to) its target color until fired. This style may start off as light orange, consistently developing a bright, squashy color upon use in the flame. Depending on the color of the bead when it is put away, a range of colors may be achieved. If this glass is put into an annealing kiln with a red hue, then a true pumpkin orange color will result in the finished piece. If it is very light orange as opposed to red and the desired result is a true pumpkin orange color, gradually cool and reheat the glass without bringing it to a soft state, look for it to turn red and then put it into the annealing kiln.
Kiln: Lighter color and greater opacity than in sheet glass form. Slight variation in color with different production runs.
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).
