Color Description: Can yield golden amber waves of color along with oranges, greens, reds, fuchsias and purples. Its unique chemistry makes it a silver-ruby—the ruby will continue to strike in the kiln.
Properties: Medium color saturation, transparent/translucent/opal, striking.
Working characteristics: Flame and kiln strike. Try pre-working by gathering in a hot reducing flame. Pull out into rod and use.
Tips: Strike in back of flame to develop silver colors. Kiln strike for reds. Beat this color up for best results. Makes a great undercoat.

Pink is a light transparent bright pink. 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 C3-23 Pink washes out when thinned, most regard this color as one for solely sculpture. Surprisingly another great role for C3-23 Pink and other transparent colors is use as overlay colors. C3-23 Pink looks great over C3-26 Double Amber/Purple, C3-45 Blue Moon, and many others. By using even a thin coating of Pink, a striking color can be transformed into an entirely new shade. Refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 5 for additional inspiration.

Plum Krazy is a dark transparent faux purple that strikes to a rich smoky blue. Work in a cool oxidizing flame to prevent overheating and striking the color. When ready to strike, either kiln at 1050F or bathe the glass in a gentle bushy neutral flame to bring out the soft blue strike. This color 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. Be sure to try it over C3-54 Star White or C3-81 Blue Caramel. Prolonged reduction leads to a grayish blue opaque surface.

Plum Kush is a black sparkle. It is well suited for sculptural applications and blown work. It is creamy and works easily. When working C3-109 Plum Kush, do so in an oxidizing flame. A reductive environment will cause gray streaks to develop on the surface and will 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. This is the first black sparkle introduced to the colored borosilicate palette and is a welcome addition to the palette of blacks from which to choose.

Pomegranate is the lightest shade of the self striking ruby family Northstar currently offers. It is designed specifically for sculptural work and thick blown work, allowing for a clear unlivered ruby to be achieved. The self striking rubies are the next generation of colors offering the user cleaner purer colors with less air and difficulty in working. When working C3-88 Pomegranate use a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Once hot C3-88 Pomegranate will turn transparent just as the standard Northstar rubies, but as it cools (depending on the thickness will strike back to red.) Because this color is so unsaturated, the final strike must take place to in a kiln. The strike is easily repeatable and the final color is not affected by soaking in the kiln for long periods of time. Even after numerous reheats no liviering will occur. In addition, C3-88 Pomegranate will not develop any brown hues as with the case of the other two members of the self striking ruby family. Note the final shade of red is slightly darker than the initial color of the rod. Once heated and allowed to strike, the final color can be viewed. For additional information about self striking rubies refer to Newsletter issue 26.

Poppy is the most eye catching, saturated, and easy working member of the intense opaque family. It is a deep Halloween orange great for stringer applications and thin blown work. It is hardly sensitive to flame chemistry, but it must be worked carefully to prevent boiling. Encasing with clear is another method to shielding the color, but not necessary. Poppy 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 your favorite light Ruby over the surface of C3-85 Poppy. For additional information refer to Newsletter issues 14 and 26.

Color Description: Designed to give a range of purples.                
Properties: High color saturation, translucent, luster.
Working characteristics: This color is an oddball and has two striking temperatures. There are things it will do in the flame that it won’t do in the kiln and vice versa.
Tips: Can strike clear in flame. If clear, will not strike in kiln and needs to be struck to yellow (minimum) before placing into kiln. If purple when going into kiln, prolonged striking will make it appear black.

Purple Urple is a dark purple that looks like C3-80 Hyacinth but works differently in the flame. This opaque purple uses chrome based technology but does not have cracking problems. 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, C3-101 Purple Urple 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.

Red Exotic: The Exotic family contains the most saturated striking colors in the Northstar family. C3-29 Red Exotic produces a deep metallic burgundy. As with the other exotics 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. C3-29 Red Exotic differs from the rest in that kiln striking will amplify the red qualities. Try layering C3-23 Pink over Red Exotic! For additional information about working Exotics refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 1.

Rhapsody is a nice dark transparent purple. If used in thicker applications like marbles or sculptures, it will appear almost black with a slight purple hue. If used in thinner applications, for example coil potting, Rhapsody will hold its intensity. We do not suggest this color for stringers or extremely thin applications such as latticinos. It may lose intensity in these types of applications. Rhapsody works well in all flame atmospheres.

Rootbeer is a striking red that can yield numerous effects ranging from rich blues and purples to reds and earthy browns. Rootbeer is well suited for sculpture and blown work of all thickness. It can be kiln or flame struck. It strikes more quickly than any other striking reds, so plan carefully. Work in a neutral to oxidizing flame to keep it from developing any liveriness. Try it with a backing of C3-65 Cherry. It also looks great with cased with C3-13 Amber/Purple. Refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 21 for additional information.

Ruby is a medium intensity striking ruby. It is good for most blown work and can be worked relatively thin without washing out. Because it is more saturated, C3-07 Ruby must be worked in a moderately oxidizing flame to prevent muddying or liveriness. To strike C3-07 Ruby, a kiln is recommended. For a great color combination, try layering C3-09 Yellow over C3-07 Ruby. For extra brilliance, back the ruby with an opaque such as C3-44 Caramel or C3-62 Bubblegum. For more information about working C3-07 Ruby refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 8.

Ruby K has been developed to mitigate the difficulties of striking rubies and allow maximum work time without liveriness. It is much easier to un-strike back to the clear state. This allows the color to be used for lip wraps, and sculptural applications without fear of over-striking. As far as intensity, Ruby K can range in color from as light as C3-07L to as dark as C3-08 Dark Ruby. Work in a hot neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. For best results, kiln strike. The piece must be as clear as possible to utilize the striking properties of this color. Above all, the most significant attribute of C3-82 Ruby K is its optical purity. It is more refined, allowing the artist to create thin work without fear of the color washing out or a rough bubbly surface.

C3-133 Silver Aqua has been formulated at the request of many artists who love the consistency of C3-126 Opaque Aqua and wanted a silver version to enhance the color spectrum of the piece they are making. To achieve the most vivid color, work C3-133 Silver Aqua in a neutral flame. The hues that can be achieved from C3-133 Silver Aqua range from a deep navy blue and nice blue purples to a whitish yellow hue.

Silver Creek is a silver based color which produces the most exciting metallic purples and vermilions as well as silvery greens and blues. It is a very stable color. It behaves similarly in the flame as C3-13 Amber Purple and C3-26 Double Amber Purple, but because of its greater core range, more care has to be taken to prevent reduction and boiling. C3-105 Silver Creek can be stretched and can be blown relatively thin without losing the vibrant colors. Try using with other colors to achieve multi layered color combinations.
