Yellow - Northstar
Yellow is an eye catching striking transparent yellow. It can be struck in a kiln or in the flame. This is another good forgiving striking color for those starting out. If it is worked in an oxidizing environment, NS009 Yellow will yield a transparent golden yellow. If worked in a neutral to slightly reducing flame NS009 Yellow will start to darken and turn a semi opaque amber color. Because the strike can be easily controlled, NS009 Yellow can be used for sculpture, beads, and blown work without washing out or overpowering the work. Try layering NS009 Yellow over NS007 Ruby for a vibrant fuchsia color and be sure to try it over NS028 Blue Exotic.

a nice transparent yellow that can be struck multiple times to darken it a bit more as well as bring out some nice surface blues from the silver in it.

One of my favorite colors to work can go from a deep fumey yellow all the way to dark purples and blues and is worked very easily.
Awesome striking color! Same flame chemistry as amber purp or any other striker. A long kiln strike can yield some dope reddish purples.
Great color, very versatile

This is a great color, not only by itself, it accents and pairs with any color combination because of the striking aspect. It can also be sleaved over any color for a great look.
Possibilities are endless!

Has to be my favorite NS color even though one of the simplest. Can give so many different effects and shades. Just a beautiful color and so easy to work.
