Candy apple red with slight variance in transparency.
Torch: Consistent colour. Keep this glass transparent by using it in small amounts with minimal heatwork, or adding it towards the end of the time in the flame. We advise labelling all striking glasses.
Kiln: A cadmium/selenium glass. Generally fires deeper (more red) than cold. This style is not suitable for kilncasting because it can opalise and/or become incompatible when held at high temperatures for a extended periods.
