This colour matures to a pink upon firing. It is more of a purple pink compared to Petal Pink which maintains a brighter colour after firing.
This glass style requires a longer initial hold time during firing to reach the target colour - please see the working notes below.
May react with:
Surface colour variations common; some light dappling. Colour range from light pink to deeper shades of lavender pink. Slight mottling on back of sheet.
Typically deepens in coloration on firing. Dark interface reaction possible with sulphur glasses (1137, 1437, 0137). Mottling disappears on firing.
Some striking glasses like this one need to be fired slowly during the initial stages of the firing cycle. If fired too fast 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. A standard full-fuse schedule should work to strike these glasses:
For projects that are especially colour-sensitive, we recommend fusing a small sample, with a similar setup in the same kiln, to best predict final colour results.
