Periwinkle - Northstar
NS055 Periwinkle is a fully opaque baby blue that is great for blown work, and stringer application. To prevent any boiling issues, heat NS055 Periwinkle slowly and gently. Once the color is glowing it can take a lot of heat. The trick is patience with a soft flame! Periwinkle is sensitive to atmosphere, and must be worked in a soft neutral to oxidizing flame. Try layering NS019 Light Cobalt over NS055 Periwinkle for bright neon blue. Also be sure to try layering NS014 Irrid over NS055 Periwinkle.

Great Purple for rainbow
by Lee G glass
One of my personal favorites for that blue purple transition for rainbows
Very nice purple!
Great color for implosions, rainbows and flowers...
Great color. Can boil easily, make that oxygen hiss hard to keep the boiling/skuzz down
Go to purple.. always works well in vac stack application
Indigo for a ROYGBIV Rainbow
This is a great "Indigo" for a ROYGBIV rainbow. Seems to hold up well to pulling in cane work.
Recently purchased some of this color to try our because I love purple! Safe to say it's an easy color to work with and as a beginner level glass blower I had no issues!

Consistent, smooth, lovely color
by Heather L
Very nice smooth color that doesn’t boil easily. Consistent and doesn’t seem to be torch chemistry dependent.
