Yellow Elvis - Trautman
Yellow Elvis is a lightly reactive amber/purple type color -- an easy striking yellow that will self-strike as it cools, but darkens with kiln striking, or with flame striking in an oxy environment. Yellow Elvis gains greenish highlights with reduction. Oxy flames bring out brighter tones, reduction gives softer earthier colors.

Yellow Elvis is a fun color: I love the fact that it's an "unsaturated" amber-purple. Working it with lots of oxy keeps it more transparent, but reducing it will bring on some haze. One of my favorite combos: core made from Momka's Yellow Pearl, coated with Yellow Elvis, rolled lightly in GA's Amazon Bronze frit (preferably 38 and/or 70 grade), hit with a reducing flame -- it's leopard spots!
easy to use

Another great striking color from TAG. Can develop a haze from reduction or overstriking. I like to blend it about 50/50 with clear. By doing this the yellow stays more transparent in striking.

I used to go with north star yellow, which has a habit of developing purple strings of color if worked too hard. I beat the snot out of TAG yellow Elvis and get true to color yellow every time. Highly recommended
