Orange - Northstar
NS005 Orange is a bright transparent striking orange that is well suited for sculpture, bead work and moderately thin blown work. The striking process is temperature related but in order to prevent any muddying, work in a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. It is recommended to kiln strike NS005 Orange. NS005 Orange looks great over NS054 Star White, and be sure to try layering NS013 Amber Purple over it.

Easy to Use Striker
Easy to use and useful with other standard strikers like NS Yellow and Amber purples
Not transparent for beginners

was not very forgiving to flame chemistry. got a bit muddy as mentioned in the notes. may need a more expert hand to get reliable colors. kiln striking did not seem to improve it much. likely will need more practice to master.
