Kandy Apple Red Tubing ODDS - Northstar
When working Kandy Apple Red, use a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Once hot, the NS0088 Pomegranate will turn transparent just as the standard Northstar rubies. As it cools, depending on the thickness will strike back to red. Because Pomegranate is so unsaturated, the final strike must take place to 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. Even after numerous reheats no liviering will occur. In addition, NS0088 Pomegranate will not develop any brown hues as with the case of the other two members of the self striking ruby family. Note the final shade of red is slightly darker than the initial color of the rod. Once heated and allowed to strike, the final color can be viewed.
