Light Ruby is a vibrant transparent striking ruby. Of the three shades of ruby, C3-07L is the least saturated and is meant to be kiln struck. Though it cannot be stretched as far as C3-08 Dark Ruby, the advantage it offers is the ability to be worked long without muddying. It is well suited for sculpture and assembled blown work. C3-07L is not overly sensitive to flame chemistry, but to ensure it strikes to a clean ruby red work in a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. For an interesting effect try layering C3-07L over C3-27 Green Exotic (for a pictorial reference refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 1) For additional information about C3-07L Light Ruby refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 8.

Nile is a unique organic version of our NS-13 Amber/Purple. It yields rich earthy tones and burnt amber hues. It is well suited for blown and sculptural applications, but it is not saturated enough for thin stringer applications. It is also useful as an overlay color.

Ninja is a smooth moderately dense blue based black. It is well suited for sculptural applications and blown work. It is creamy and works easily, making it a welcomed addition to the palette of blacks from which to choose. When working C3-91 Ninja, do so in an oxidizing flame. In a reductive environment it will develop gray streaks on the surface and result in a dull matte finish. When applying the color, do so gently. After it is melted in it can take a lot of heat. C3-91 Ninja is great in combination with many colors and serves as a background for striking colors. Be sure to try layering your favorite Amber/Purple over the surface.

Periwinkle is a fully opaque baby blue that is great for blown work, and stringer application. To prevent any boiling issues, heat C3-55 Periwinkle slowly and gently. Once the color is glowing it can take a lot of heat. The trick is patience with a soft flame! Periwinkle is sensitive to atmosphere, and must be worked in a soft neutral to oxidizing flame. Try layering C3-19 Light Cobalt over NS-55 Periwinkle for bright neon blue. Also be sure to try layering C3-14 Irrid over C3-55 Periwinkle. For additional information about C3-55 Periwinkle refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 15.
