Purple Rain Rod - Glass Alchemy
Working Tip: Must be worked hot in a neutral flame to melt in the inclusions and avoid the wispy streaks. Try layering Purple Rain to achieve a purple tint, or using it in thick solid sections to achieve a vibrant purple.
Artist Description: “This what you see is what you get transparent is a vibrant purple. Purple Rain builds intensity in vibrancy when used in thick layers or in solid sections. When veiled over clear or another color it will lend a nice tint or hue to the underneath application. When working Purple Rain without encasement, it can easily be worked in a variety of atmospheres and flame settings including sharp direct pinpoint flames often used on welds. The optical qualities to Purple Rain make it a great color for both hollow and solid work. Encalmo it to GA Eclipse or GA Sapphire for great results. It also complements GA Paris Green quite well.” – Mike Shelbo

Hands down my favorite transparent
by Alan R -
This transparent purple was brought back onto the market for a limited time. It's a beautiful transparent blue purple that works wonderfully and looks best when used thick in sculptural applications. Similar to northstar Violet but bluer and air bubbles
