This is a rich colour which fires particularly pink, however if you want a more subtle tone use Light Plum, a dusty shade of violet, to calm the colour.
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:
Colour range from paler to deep shades. Some variations from pink to brown tones. Slight mottling on back of sheet.
Generally deepens in hue 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.
