Silver Pearl is a green color with a splash of mossy sheen on the surface. This is just like C3-115 Silver Sea Weed, but with a mossy sheen. Use in a hot oxidizing flame. C3-116 Silver Pearl is great for color coils and sculpture work. When pulled down into stringers the color fades easily. This is a chrome based color so please use little caution. In an oxidizing atmosphere this color will turn purple, green, blue, and even jadish green. If reduced you will get green cream colors and also purple.

Silver Unobtainium is also a dark blue sparkle that has silver in it. It is well suited for stringer application and blown work. It is easily worked and can take a lot of heat.

Star White is a creamy fully opaque white. It is an indispensable color in the palette for all applications. It is great for sculpture, stringers, blown work, and backings for all transparent colors. With several reformulations Star White has been turned into an easy color to work. It is atmospherically stable meaning it can be worked in any flame without the color being affected. To prevent any boiling issues, heat C3-54 Star White slowly and gently. Once the color is glowing it can take a lot of heat. The trick is patience with a soft flame! For additional information about C3-54 Star White refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 15.

Steel Wool is a unique addition to the borosilicate color palette. It is a funky, bumpy color rod that turns smooth when melted. It has tons of sparkle and can be mixed with any color to add a sparkly shimmer to any piece. C3-129 Steel Wool can be used in all applications with no cracking issues but use caution in deep encasement. We recommend using a neutral/oxidizing flame for C3-129 Steel Wool. Use in the back of the flame and try a reducing flame to cut down on boiling. Try mixing C3-20 Dark Cobalt with C3-129 Steel Wool to get a very nice blue sparkle. A little hand mixing of C3-129 Steel Wool will give you the color you desire.

Sublime is a transparent iridescent signal light green. It is the most eye catching borosilicate transparent color in the palette. Sublime is atmospherically stable meaning it can be worked in any flame without the color being affected. It is a member of the transparent family but it is saturated enough for thin blown work. Its most exciting application is as an overlay color. It looks amazing over C3-81 Blue Caramel (as seen in Northstar Blue Caramel promotional flyer.) For additional tips try layering it over C3-54 Star White and refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 9.

Super Unobtainium is a dark blue sparkle. This color has lots of large crystals of metal on the surface. It is well suited for stringer application and blown work. It is easily worked and can take a lot of heat. To keep the color most vibrant, work in a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Try to avoid deep encasement as it may cause cracking. Please use C3-119 Super Unobtainium with care and test before you make any thing that is expensive. Outside work seems to work just great with no problems. Try coating C3-119 Super Unobtainium with C3-86 Garnet or C3-88 Pomegranate to achieve a brilliant ruby sparkle. Any transparent color coated over C3-119 Super Unobtainium looks great. C3-119 Super Unobtainium has lots more sparkle but does not have the Gun Metal surface of C3-104 Unobtainium.

Tan Silver Creek is a yellowish cream color. It can yield rich purplish blue and creamy tan tones. When kept in a more oxidizing environment, you will get more of the blues and purples. If reduced, a silvery haze will appear on the surface. C3-114 Tan Silver Creek is easy to work and can take a lot of heat which makes it a forgiving striking color. It can be stretched out and is good for blown work and sculpture. If you are looking for something even more intense, try C3-44 Caramel or C3-102 Silver Bullet.

Teal is an intense fully opaque bright seafoam green. It is great for stringer applications and thin blown work.

C3-52 Teal is not sensitive to atmosphere but it is recommended to work in a neutral flame. It has no heat issues and can be worked hot and long. Try encasing Teal with C3-48 Light Blue Amber/Purple for a nice effect.

Turbo Cobalt is the most intense cobalt blue in the Northstar palette. It is great for stringer application, and stretching out thin. If kept moderately thick, Turbo Cobalt is an excellent faux black. Because of its intensity, C3-33 Turbo Cobalt must be worked in a highly oxidizing flame to prevent graying. If however you are looking for a battleship gray, it can be achieved by working Turbo Cobalt in a heavily reducing flame. For a nice color combination try layering C3-26 Double Amber/Purple over C3-33 Turbo Cobalt. For additional information about C3-33 Turbo Cobalt and the other cobalt blues refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 16

Turquesa is a more saturated version of C3-14 Irrid and produces similar effects. When worked in an oxidizing flame Turquesa yields more pronounced metallic blues. When reduced, deep sea greens result. Because it is more saturated than Irrid, Turquesa can be used for thinner blown work without thinning out. Try layering it over an opaque to yield new effects. Also try reducing Turquesa, then encasing with clear. For additional information refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 4.
