Ruby Slippers - Northstar
Ruby Slippers was named after the old school version Northstar made over 15 years ago! This newest formula uses a NS088 Pomegranate base red with a TAG Stardust sparkle. With little to no air content, this glass is easy to use in all flame atmospheres. As a kiln striking red, it’s recommended to strike for 6-8 hours at 1050° F. This color is a great option for overlays and color combos!
This color uses NS088 Pomegranate, the lightest shade of the kiln-striking ruby family Northstar currently offers. Because this color is so unsaturated, the final strike must take place in a kiln. The strike is easily repeatable, and the final color is not affected by soaking in the kiln for long periods of time.
Note: The sparkle is hard to capture in photos and looks best in natural sunlight!
