Iris Rod - Glass Alchemy
Working Tip: Likes to be heated slowly raising the core temperature. Once your base heat has been achieved you can work hot. Air bubbles will disappear after preheating. Do not heat this color to white hot.
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"Drop this opaque blue right in the fade with the rest of the family. It rounds out the blues so nicely as the in between of GA Bibidibobidiblue and GA Lapis. It works like the in between of them as well in the way that its level of stiffness is more than Bibidi and less than Lapis. This color works well in vac stacks and encasement in marbles. When working solid color or coiled GA Iris, then it is a good idea to work an inch or two out further in your flame than your normal working region until the color is all the way melted and smooth on both the surface and interior. Not much sublimation at the termination points, but do not intense spot heat right after termination, work the melt in slowly. GA Iris pairs well with GA Alchemy Mint and GA Double Passion." - Mike Shelbo

There's a ton of periwinkle fades, this one works fantastically. In your initially pre-heating you may notice some bubbles forming, dont worry this is just air inside the rod escaping, however you can boil it if heated too rapidly or intensely. WYSIWYG, works in every application extremely well.
great shade of blue!

this is a great blue color that is great on surface or encased work. this is also a must have for a fire and ice fade in a vac stack. GA once again makes a shade of blue known to be difficult to work now done with ease :)
