Double Amber Purple - Northstar
NS026 Double Amber/Purple is the more intense version of NS013 Amber Purple. It produces the most exciting metallic purples and vermilions. It behaves similarly in the flame as regular Amber/Purple but because of its greater intensity more care has to be taken to prevent reduction. Double Amber/Purple can be stretched further and can be blown relatively thin without losing the vibrant purple strike. Be sure to try layering Double Amber/Purple over NS081 Blue Caramel.

My favorite A/P! The rods are bubble free (in my experience), and I find just a regular kiln cycle at normal annealing temp brings out great colours! A little flame striking before it's put away can also add some variations.

This color is very nice. To the beginners. This color takes some practice, but once you have learned how to use it, the possiablitys are endless. The variations of color with different fuel/oxygen mixtures can create an entire new style of glass work for you.

Stability and versatility
by Brad S
This is bar non my favorite colors. I prefer colors with a lot of stability and non boily tendencies, and this color is it! Like the same suggests, colors from dark amber to swirling purples can be achieved. A rod of this color is always on my rod rest, and is the one I grab the most often for dots and accents.
A richer version of amber purple, another must have!
I’m very new to working with glass, but amber purple and double amber purple have been a awesome striking color to work with. Very forgiving in all types of flames and produces a vast verity of colors from rich amber yellows, to crazy transparent blues and purples. I’d highly recommend any new comers to give this a try!
Very Cool Dude

Best a/p on the market
by Michael schneider
Beautiful. Love how easy it is to work thin!
A Highly Saturated Amber/Purple
One of my favorite colors. Works beautifully for surface applications, but difficult to get a good strike when deeply encased. I like it best for honeycomb implosion pendants.
Favorite color for sure
This is my favorite color. If I could only pick one color this would be the one. I love it!
by Matt Golden Mane Glass
I love NS DAP! It's my main go to for striking colors. I love being able to get super deep purples and nice rich amber colors from it!
Another Amazing Color. with soo many uses and possibilities...
Double amber purple is my favorite color out of Northstars color palette. It can be worked hard in the flame, it's great for deep encasements or outside work. I personally use it in frit form for a lot of the pendants I make. You can achieve some pretty awesome color effects when properly struck.
Easily one of my favorite colors to work the range is amazing composition is super consistent so if you find a color in the range you like it's pretty easy to recreate and honestly the color can take a beating
One of my favorite colors! Easy to work, soapy color options depending on how you work it. Love the fritt as well
Love this color! You can get some really nice fumey purples outta this color. It’s a must have color!
A must have!!
This is one of my absolute favorites!!! The color is so silky and smooth!!
