Details

Garnet is a member the self striking ruby family. Garnet is the medium intensity shade of the three shades of self striking rubies Northstar currently offers. It is best suited for medium thickness blown work and highlights. The self striking rubies are the next generation of colors offering the user cleaner purer colors with less air and difficulty in working. When using #NS0086 Garnet, do so in a neutral to oxidizing flame. Once hot Garnet will turn transparent just as the standard Northstar rubies, but as it cools it turns a uniform ruby red. The strike is easily repeatable and the final color is not affected by kilning. Even after numerous reheats no liviering will occur. 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. After prolonged use in sculptural and inside out applications #NS0086 Garnet can develop a deep brown hue. This can usually be reversed by heating the color until molten. For a great color effect try layering #NS0086 Garnet over #NS0085 Poppy. For additional information about #NS0086 Garnet refer to Newsletter issue 26.



Odd quality glass is first quality glass that is out of round, thinner/thicker than normal, has a taper, varies in diameter, and/or not full length.



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.
