Red Exotic - Fore Powder Frit - 16oz. - Northstar
Northstar Fore Powder is a byproduct of frit production. Fore Powder is a very fine crushed up glass with a range of grit size from 70-100 mesh.
The Exotic family contains the most saturated striking colors in the Northstar family. NS029 Red Exotic produces a deep metallic burgundy. As with the other exotics work them in a super oxidizing environment until you are finished with the piece. Then, turn the flame down and bathe the piece in a super reducing flame for several second to produce the mirror like sheen. Another great effect that is possible with the Exotics is encasement with clear. This group of colors can be stretched out and is great for blown work. If heavily encased, be sure to anneal thoroughly. Exotics are also enhanced by a backing with NS054 Star White. NS029 Red Exotic differs from the rest in that kiln striking will amplify the red qualities. Try layering NS023 Pink over Red Exotic!
