Mai Tai Pink - Trautman
Mai Tai Pink is colorless in the rod, but it changes dramatically in the kiln after being flame worked! Flame strikes to barely amber yellow, but it's designed to change considerably during longer annealing at 1050° F.
May be kilned repeatedly for more color, or ramped up to 1150° F to speed the strike. Can also be un-struck in the flame after the kiln cycle for interesting color-fade effects. It is virtually impossible to over-strike this color.
Burn off haze for more pinks or leave the haze for more purple effects. The Mai Tai's are from the amber/purple family, but with less amber and more pinks and purples.

okay so this is like double amber purple from northstar, but its more purple and easier to achieve. it goes well with just about anything. make sure to rage your oxy to keep it looking right. strikes amazingly well.

To politely disagree with the first review, This is not like Amber Purple from any other glass company. It is Mai Tai Pink and it will work up wonderful pinks and some faint yellow and purplish tones when worked properly. It is light and delicate, yet easy to work. It will disappear mostly when brought up to temp. You can roast it and it wont over strike, it comes in gently like a Spring breeze. If you dont get enough color the first go-round then kiln strike it again until you achieve the colors you want. Pinks show up best over Whiteout I find (or Yellows). I like it because you have lots of control over the striking, and you can coax just the right amount of color from it without over-striking. I really like pairing it with other light wispy colors. It can be ethereal and ghostly over or in clear.

I absolutely love this color. Works like butter and strikes easily.

One of the most controllable striking amber purple colour blends. Work hot and maintain clarity as long as you can, a quick hot soak in the kiln above 1150F will saturate the colour and reveal vibrant purples and rich ambers. In a reducing fire you can get more haze and opacity as the silver blooms and coats the surface. I try to never run out of this stuff in my studio, great for solid jewelry and blown forms alike. Can't get enough of it.
