Unobtainium is a very dense gun metal blue with lots of sparkle. 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, it may cause cracking. Please use C3-104 Unobtainium with care and test your application before making expensive pieces. Outside work seems to work just great with no problems. Try coating C3-104 Unobtainium with C3-86 Garnet or C3-88 Pomegranate to achieve a brilliant ruby sparkle. Any transparent color coated over C3-104 Unobtainium looks great.

Violet is a light transparent redish 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 C3-32 Violet washes out when thinned most regard it as a color for sculpture only. However, like the other transparent colors, Violet is well suited as an overlay color. It looks great over C3-13 Amber/Purple. For additional information refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 5.

Yellow is an eye catching striking transparent yellow. It can be struck in a kiln or in the flame. This is another good forgiving striking color for those starting out. If it is worked in an oxidizing environment, C3-09 Yellow will yield a transparent golden yellow. If worked in a neutral to slightly reducing flame NS-09 Yellow will start to darken and turn a semi opaque amber color. Because the strike can be easily controlled, C3-09 Yellow can be used for sculpture, beads, and blown work without washing out or overpowering the work. Try layering C3-09 Yellow over C3-07 Ruby for a vibrant fuchsia color (as demonstrated in Northstar Newsletter issue 8), and be sure to try it over C3-28 Blue Exotic.

Blue Exotic: The Exotic family contains the most saturated striking colors in the Northstar family. C3-28 Blue Exotic can yield a mirror like blue metallic finish and if over-reduced an 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. Try layering C3-09 Yellow over C3-28 Blue Exotic. For additional information about working Exotics refer to Northstar Newsletter issue 1
