Glacier Blue - Northstar
NS072 Glacier Blue is a darker version of NS070 Ice Blue. It has a green tint to the color and like NS070 Ice Blue, Glacier adds great optical depth even in thin layers. It is not suitable for stringers or cane work, but it is great for sculpture and blown work. Its effect as an overlay color is impressive. Try this color over NS055 Periwinkle or NS083 Skyline for great color effects. Like NS070 Ice Blue, Glacier is also sensitive to a reductive flame. Because it is more saturated, extra care has to be taken to prevent reduction from developing. By using a strong oxidizing flame no reddish brown streaks will develop.

One of the most underrated blues out there. This color is absolutely stunning!
Great overlay color
Glacier Blue adds a nice tint, I like to apply a nice thick layer. The green shift it has reminds me of looking through a few feet of ocean water instead of a pool. If I'm not careful I have encountered the described reddish streaks and they are not appealing - its worth the effort to keep Glacier Blue from discoloring.
