Shooting Star - Trautman
This color was a happy accident, one of those fun "chocolate in the peanut butter" kind of colors; folks loved it so much they begged for more! A mix of the stable Stardust aventurine with reactive silvered A/P: Shooting Star is very light and features a blue base. The rods look a lot like the popular Blue Stardust -- UNTIL YOU MELT IT! Then the amber/purple really comes out!
Flame strikes, but the strike deepens in the kiln at regular annealing temperatures. The overall effect is a blue-green amber/purple with the stable sparkles of a Blue Stardust. Shooting Star layers beautifully and retains a lot of transparency, especially when blown thin; safe to implode.
