Green Exotic - #25 Large Frit - 4oz. - Northstar
The Exotic family contains the most saturated striking colors in the Northstar family. NS027 Green Exotic can yield a mirror like green metallic finish and if over-reduced a very organic earthy tone as well. To keep the Exotics most vibrant, work them in a super oxidizing environment until you are finished with the piece. Then, turn the flame down and bathe the piece in a super reducing flame for several second to produce the mirror like sheen. Another great effect that is possible with the Exotics is encasement with clear. This group of colors can be stretched out and is great for blown work. If heavily encased, be sure to anneal thoroughly. Exotics are also enhanced by a backing with NS054 Star White. Be sure to try layering NS007L over NS027 Green Exotic.

Green Exotic #25 used for inside work will melt in such a way that each piece of glass, although melted in, is still visible, separate from the other pieces of frit. Also, when used somewhat sparingly inside, this frit will fume the inside of the piece where there is no frit melted in creating a very different look from the inside work where the glass is fully covered.
