Goldenrod is a bright, saturated intense opaque dark yellow. It is well suited for stringer application and thin blown work. It is not terribly sensitive to flame chemistry but stay out of overly reducing flames. Goldenrod however is heat sensitive so it must be worked carefully to prevent boiling. Encasing with clear is another method to shielding the color, but not necessary. Canary can be easily worked on the surface and will not boil or scar if worked carefully in a soft flame. For a nice color effect layer C3-13 Amber/Purple over C3-84 Goldenrod. For additional information about the intense opaque colors refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 14 and issue 26.

Green Amber/Purple is the most intense and exciting of the Northstar Amber/Purple family. It reacts quickly and produces the lushest purplish blue strike. It can range in color from a pale silvery blue to an opaque to a sea green all the way to cloudy gray. It is well suited for flame striking and produces wonderful results. Because it is so intense be sure to keep a hot oxidizing flame set. Reduction will affect the strike. Try it over C3-54 Star White. Another excellent combination is C3-05 Orange hobnails over the surface of C3-69 Green Amber/Purple. There is a lot you can do with this color have fun exploring.

Green Exotic: The Exotic family contains the most saturated striking colors in the Northstar family. C3-27 Green Exotic can yield a mirror like green metallic finish and if over-reduced a very organic earthy tone as well. To keep the Exotics most vibrant, work them in a super oxidizing environment until you are finished with the piece. Then, turn the flame down and bathe the piece in a super reducing flame for several second to produce the mirror like sheen. Another great effect that is possible with the Exotics is encasement with clear. This group of colors can be stretched out and is great for blown work. If heavily encased, be sure to anneal thoroughly. Exotics are also enhanced by a backing with C3-54 Star White. Be sure to try layering C3-07L over C3-27 Green Exotic. For additional information about working Exotics refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 1.

Color Description: When designing this color, our goal was to provide the artist with an ocean of blues and greens when encased, while also allowing the artist to bring metals to the surface when unencased.                Properties: Havana Moon Lite, 5813 was produced using a new Glass Alchemy technology, which enhances the reaction of the silver in the glass.
Working characteristics: For best results, work in a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame setting.        
Tips: Encasement in clear will trap wisps and streaks of metallic and fume-like blues and depending on how your piece is worked will change results with manipulation.

Hyacinth is a lush fully opaque faux purple. It is great for blown work and thin stringer application. It is heat and flame sensitive so it must be heated up slowly to prevent boiling. Once it glows red, Hyacinth will take heat well. Because of its intensity it is sensitive to reduction. If the flame is not oxidizing enough gray and brown streaks will develop on the surface of the glass. Try it with a layer of C3-32 Violet for a deep purple effect!

Ice Blue is a lush copper blue that has an unrivaled eye catching appeal. It is a light transparent color but it adds great optical depth even in thin layers. It is not suitable for stringers or cane work, but it is great for sculpture and blown work. Its effect as an overlay color is impressive. When added over C3-45 Blue Moon, it produces a very appealing blue! To keep Ice Blue from dulling or discoloring, work in an oxidizing flame. If worked in a neutral to reducing flame the color will darken and develop reddish brown striations in the body of the glass.

Jade is a saturated fully opaque plant green. It can be stretched out for stringer applications or thin blown work. With the reformulations that have been made it can be worked in a much hotter flame, but be careful not to overheat. Stay in a neutral to slightly oxidizing environment. As with the workability improvements, C3-11 Jade’s C.O.E. is far improved. It can be encased and used for inside-out applications. Be sure to run a thorough annealing schedule with encased C3-11 Jade. For a neat color effect, try layering a transparent striking color such as C3-03 Multi over C3-11 Jade

Silver Amethyst is a dark violet color with silver. Work in a cool oxidizing flame to prevent overheating and striking the color. When ready to strike, either kiln strike at 1050F or bathe the glass in a gentle bushy neutral flame to bring out the soft blue strike. C3-124 Silver Amethyst is best suited for moderately thick coil-potted blown work and sculptural applications. When encased in clear this color produces a vibrant violet with wisps of metallic blue. Prolonged reduction leads to a grayish blue opaque surface. Have fun with this color!

Lavender is a transparent light bluish purple. It is atmospherically stable meaning it can be worked in any flame without the color being changed. It is also resistant to excessive heat, and can take a lot of abuse. Because Lavender washes out when thinned most think of it as a color used for sculpture only. However, like the other transparent colors, Lavender is well suited as an overlay color. Try layering it over your favorite exotic or Amber/Purple. For additional information refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 5.
