Details

A striking, very saturated and dark Ruby Red glass. Great for stringers and very thin work. May be used as a black too. Work in a neutral to oxidizing flame. Dark Red Elvis will self-strike as it cools but will get darker with flame striking or kiln striking. Flame strike in an oxidizing atmosphere. Dark Red Elvis strikes at a slightly lower temperature than most rubies.

The KING

by -

First of all for a self-striking color this deep dark red is virtually impervious. When worked it turns almost entirely clear but quickly strikes to an almost black red. I recommend blowing out or pulling down to experience all of the rich deep red hue.

Love this color!

Dark Red Elvis is one of my very favorite colors for backing pendants. It melts easily and flows smoothly. It starts to strike relatively quickly, so you can double-check to make sure you haven't missed a spot before you toss it in the kiln. Also, the color is unusual in the boro palette, and it coordinates surprisingly well with carnelian beads -- if you're in to making finished jewelry.
