Caramel - Northstar
NS044 Caramel is a more intense version of NS041 Butterscotch. It is a rich silvery tan color that can be stretched out thin. It is great for stringer application and blown work. Work in a hot neutral to oxidizing flame for bright tan colors. To bring out the silvery mirror like sheen, bathe the piece in a reducing flame. Be sure to try NS007 Ruby or NS013 Amber Purple over NS044 Caramel.

Love this color
by Carey B -
easy to work with and produces beautiful earthy tones! a must have
Hands down my favorite color, it works so well it should be called butter. Just an amazing range of earthy tones. And can take plenty of abuse.
I dig the Carmel and used it quite frequently in my work!! Works well and is an easy color to work with, coming from me, I haven’t been on the torch that long but I haven’t had any issues with this color at all
Awesome color if you like silver strike 5!
One of my favorite colors! If your a fan of silver strike 5 from GA, give this color a try. Very saturated with silver and can give some very awesome silvery earth tones in a reducing flame. Another must have from NorthStar in my book!
Best color for wood grain!

Absolutely love laying lines of caramel and stringers of grizzly over clear And then adding a layer on top of maple syrup, gives me the exact effect that of wood grain I was going for!
very especial color
I love this color, I usually use it in frit because of the effect it produces, take the piece out in the sunlight and you will hallucinate.
Great color for so many pieces!!

This is such an amazing color!! I make lots of little glass foods and this works amazing for pie crust, hamburger buns, the cones on ice cream cones, and as chopsticks for my little ramen pendants. I use it for everything and its soo smooth and workable too. Definitely one of my MUST HAVE colors in my shop🥰

Awesome color works good for mushrooms very easy to work, I always try to keep a bit.
Used for Coral Reef
This caramel is the only color I like for doing coral reef rocks in sea life work
I love to use this color for the skin of mermaids that I make. The swirls and shades make it seem to have lots of movement.
