Red Exotic Rod - Northstar
Ratings & Reviews

This stuff looks great encased, even just with clear. It gets a really rusty look. I find it hard to get much colour unencased.
Too Often Overlooked
by ROBERT -
I find the exotics are too often overlooked because they’ve been around so long. I wrap-n-rake this rod along side Northstar Lava and it creates a super earthy stand out design.
Red Exotic is one of my favorite colors. I almost always encase in clear or a transparent color. Watch out for cracking and compatibility since it has a slightly higher coe than other colors. I pretty much have a long annealing cycle when between 1000 and 600. I also don’t typically use it encased with other dense color due to compatibility issues. That being said this color has phenomenal reactivity to flame chemistry. Do a deep dive into the exotic colors and they won’t disappoint. I primarily use red exotic as encased frit. Don’t forget different brands of clear will yield different results because of how well or fast they accept silver crystals. The Stuff n puff method is especially fun:)
