Of the striking colors in the borosilicate palette, the amber/purples are some of the most exciting. NST013 is the first in a series of five Amber/Purple colors. It is well suited for sculpture and moderately thin blown work. The color can produce pale yellows to ambers to a deep purple. To yield the most vibrant purples, work in a hot neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Reduction will affect the strike.
Second quality glass can have the properties of odd quality glass, but may also have small stones, air bubbles, vary in tone/shade or the shape can be very out of round. Both odd and second quality glass can provide a great value to the right person.
Please note: Some pieces of odds and seconds tubing may be extremely large and too thick for some smaller torches or less experienced glass workers.
Tubing is sold by the ounce with a minimum order of 8 ounces. Tubes are pulled as close to the weight ordered as possible. Because of the nature of hand pulled tubes, the weight ordered and the weight sent/billed may vary by several ounces.
Please be aware that some tubes may taper or have varying wall thicknesses throughout the tube.
