Details

NS152 Galaxy is the first collaborative effort between Northstar Glass & Trautman Art Glass to produce a new color in rod. This color was formulated from the iconic NS125 Jet Black base along with the amazing sparkle from the Trautman Stardust family. Very durable & easy to use with a beautiful balance of dense black and heavy sparkle. Safe for encasement, though not recommended for millefiori or deep encasement. Use an oxidizing flame to prevent any gray streaks caused from reductive environment.

The best!

North star is the best!! Almost all we use!

Perfect addition to sparkle pallet

by

Color works great! Stays nice and black and the fleck is just the right size. Great for backing pendys and mibs.

Sparkle is always better

by -

As with most blacks I’ve used go heavy on the oxy to avoid greying the sparkle is subtle enough to replace a black in most applications and give it an extra layer of wow in the finished piece

Great sparkle!

by

NS Galaxy is a great blue based black with an amazing sparkle! Works well both raw and encased. Do not reduce, will oxidize.

Excellent color

Love this color and hope Northstar and Trautman collaborate more! Easy to use and have had no cracking issues. I have used mostly as backing and for accents.

Great new sparkle color!

by

This color is super to work with! Definitely needs a bit more oxygen than you initially anticipate but once it’s hot this stuff can take a pretty decent beating for a sparkle color! The sparkles are so saturated in this stuff it just seriously POPS when light hits it.

Who needs black when you can have black with sparkles

by

This is the sparkle I’d been waiting for and it delivers. Dense workable black with heavy sparkle saturation even in small doses. Really makes those vacs pop

My go to black backing.

My go to black for backing pendants. I love it. Works like butter.

This is a great new addition to the north star sparkle pallet. It's almost like crushed opal. Love it!

Galaxy for galaxy

One of the base colors I use for galaxy prep, I lay lines of blue blizzard and galaxy over clear, melt and add a little fume, and add a top coat of the blue stardust family. Really nice for when you want a black with just a little extra somethin for the eyes to feast on!

Great unique sparkle

by

Great color

This is a great new addition to northstar's speaker pallet. It's almost like crushed opal. It's beautiful.

Who needs plain old black when there's sparkley black!

by

Works really well, completely opaque, quite stiff, with loads of sparkle.honestly why would you want just plain black anymore
<br>
<br>Use a slightly oxidized flame and don't put it too close to the candles.

Omg wow

I love this glass!!

by

I love this glass! It can be worked like butter and not boil.

Super easy space

Galaxy is a super easy working black with sparkles. You can get super faint blue striking on it that can really add to the space vibe this color gives.
<br>This color is absolutely one of my favorites available today.

God I love this color. In my opinion it's more stable than any other black, plus it shines! Not to mention. It's a historic color!
