One of the strongest pinks of the Bullseye palette, a bright happy bubblegum pink, which matures to its target colour after full firing.
This glass with an iridescent surface will add dimension, pattern and surface to create a unique and eye-catching piece of glasswork.
Iridescent coatings may vary in appearance from edge to edge and from sheet to sheet. For example, the rainbow iridescent coating on a black sheet may appear on approximately two-thirds of the surface, while the remaining area shows only silver or gold iridescent hues.
This glass style requires a longer initial hold time during firing to reach the target colour - please see the working notes below.
Permanent at full fusing temperatures it is also food safe for functional tableware.
Colour usually deepens on firing. Possible dark interface reaction with selenium and/or sulphur glasses (0137, 1122, 1125,0124, 0125, 1137, 1437). Less viscous (softer) than most other glasses. Some gold-bearing striking glasses, like this one, should be fired with a 2 hour hold at 663°C during the initial stages of the firing cycle. If fired without this hold, they may not strike at all, or they may strike but appear spotty and have a blue-brown cast, as opposed to the desired target colour. This full-fuse schedule should effectively strike these glasses:
* The initial rate of heat is not a critical factor in successfully striking gold-bearing glasses. Choose an initial rate of heat appropriate to the scale and design of the project that you are firing.
** Remainder of cycle depends on the thickness of the piece. Consult the Bullseye Annealing Chart. For colour-sensitive projects, we recommend testing the cycle you plan to use by fusing a small sample of a similar setup in the same kiln as the project to best predict final colour results.
All our glass is COE90, Bullseye Glass compatible and suitable for applications such as glass fusing, glass casting and glass slumping (unless otherwise stated in the description).
