Orange Crayon - Occasionals - Glass Alchemy
Working Tip: Pre-heat in outer flame. Avoid rapid heating.
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
True to the name, this Crayon color is as Orange as it gets. Orange Crayon, 204 is a dense opaque color that holds up well in thin, blown applications and stringers. The color works very creamy and smooth if you work the rod in the appropriate area of your torch flame. It can be worked in a variety of flame settings. Try not to work this color very close to the torch tip in a sharp intense flame for long exposures of time unless it is with quick passes over the area you are trying to melt. Encasement in clear will add volume to your color because only a thin application of Orange Crayon is needed for a solid opaque covering. Likewise, coating thick clear rod in Orange Crayon will yield larger or more opaque glass to sculpt with.
