Amber/Purple: Of the striking colors in the borosilicate palette the Amber/purples are some of the most exciting. C3-13 is the first in a series of five Amber/Purple colors. It is well suited for sculpture and moderately thin blown work. The color can produce pale yellows to ambers to a deep purple. To yield the most vibrant purples, work in a hot neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Reduction will affect the strike. Try encasing your favorite Amber/Purple with C3-32 Violet, or C3-31 Lavender. To enhance C3-13 Amber/Purple try backing it with C3-54 Star White. For a complete guide to working C3-13 Amber/Purple refer to the Northstar bead brochure and Northstar Newsletter issue 2.

Black Lightning is a very dense black with silver. C3-100 Black Lightning can yield a mirror like blue metallic finish or if over-reduced an organic earthy tone. To keep C3-100 Black Lightning most vibrant, work 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 seconds to produce the mirror like sheen. For another great effect, encase NS-100 Black Lightning with clear. This color can be stretched out and is great for blown work. If heavily encased, be sure to anneal thoroughly. This is the bigger brother of C3-111 Alaskan Thunder.
