A true black colour. This glass is actually an extremely dark transparent in terms of it's composition, but has the characteristics of an opal.
Rods can be used in torchworking and kilnforming, and add an exciting difference to glass work. Drawn from compatible Bullseye glass, each rod is approximately 42cm long and 4-6mm in diameter.
The 225g pack contains approximately 9 rods.
Torch: Remains black except in extremely thin applications, when it may become dark grey. It is a soft glass. Beware of heating the glass so much that it bleeds and webs out over other glasses‚ or use this quality as a design element. Consider using 0101, Stiff Black for a crisper appearance.
Kiln: Low viscosity. Will flow sooner and more than other glasses. In very thin sections the colour may vary from reddish/grey to bluish/grey.
