Cobalt - Fore Powder Frit - 16oz. - Northstar
Northstar Fore Powder is a byproduct of frit production. Fore Powder is a very fine crushed up glass with a range of grit size from 70-100 mesh.
Of the four shades of cobalt blue Northstar produces, this ranks as the second lightest. Cobalt is well suited for small blown work, as well as sculpture when a medium transparent blue is desired. Cobalt Blue can take a lot of heat and can be worked in a wide range of flame settings. Though the color is extremely intense, be sure to stay out of reducing flames to prevent any dulling or graying.
