Bullseye stringers truly expand your creative range. You can use them straight out of the tube or shape them with a flame. Offsets, accents, displacements, the possibilities are endless.
A rich deep red opal with slight, somewhat brown cast to it.
Keep in mind that striking glass matures to a much different color when fired. The final color will vary depending on temperature, atmosphere, and heat history. This allows a broad range of color to be obtained from a single sheet of glass.
Striker - Contains Selenium, Sulfur, May React With Copper, Lead, Silver.
Color variations common from red-orange to terracotta. Frequently lightly streaked and with yellow mottling on back of single-rolled sheet.
A cadmium/selenium glass. Can react with lead-bearing glasses or overglazes. Possible reactions with 001311, 001215. Much color variation typical upon firing. If specific color is important, always test before beginning project. Use glasses from same dates. Do not assume that sheets of the same color when cold will fire identically.
This style is not suitable for kilncasting because it can become incompatible when held at high temperatures for an extended period. It may also become incompatible in instances where processes exceed the parameters of the test for compatibility. Testing recommended when heat work exceeds these parameters.
