Cobalt 6 OCCASIONAL Rod - Glass Alchemy
Working Tip: Work in neutral flame to avoid reduction (gray streaks).
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
A stiff, dense translucent cobalt blue, Cobalt-6 is so dense in color saturation that it seems black. When drawn down into extremely thin threads, it will still remain a deep cobalt blue transparent. Keep Cobalt-6 in the outer region of your flame length, in a mix of gas that will not reduce the color if used without encasement. Grey streaks or patches could develop from too much propane in your torch flame, so using a neutral flame is best. Cobalt-6 can be sandwiched between clear and blown out very thin while still having an intensely deep cobalt blue color. Light transmitting through Cobalt-6 when color layer is thin enough is very rich and pleasing.
Occasional Quality Rod does not meet the Glass Alchemy first quality standards and may consist of rods varying in length and diameter. 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.
