GA Beryl Single Rod

Beryl, 833 was designed as an organic colour to fill a huge hole in the borosilicate palette. A colour that is seen (but not often noticed) in nature and called retro by those that recall the oil lamps and cruets of the 60's, Beryl, 833 makes a great bead colour, is useful as a tint or sculptural colour.

Working Tip: Work in neutral flame to avoid reduction (red streaks)

GA Walnut Single Rod

Walnut, 8475 was a later release. We were receiving many requests to create a colour that matched the saturation of Cobalt-5, 515 in a brown tone. Recognizing that this was an important colour, we did several months of development work and were very pleased to introduce Black Walnut, 8475. A deep rich opaque brown, this colour works well in many applications and has become an important part of our lineup.

GA Sienna Brown Single Rod

Sienna Brown, 864 was one of our first six colours. An elegant brown created to fit into the mostly transparent palette at the time, this colour easily falls into several colour schemes. It becomes deeper in tone, approaching black as it is melted into larger gathers.

Working Tip: Work in neutral flame to avoid reduction (black with grey wisps)

GA Black Violet Single Rod

Black Violet, 974 was part of Glass Alchemy's initial introduction of colours. At the time the market needed a black that did not boil and we introduced 3 new blacks to choose from. Black Violet is a deep translucent that is extremely workable, great for beads and other sculptural projects. It is popular because it flows together without transition lines, is very shiny and the surface does not easily reduce.

GA Raven Single Rod

Raven, 9749 is our densest black.  This colour can be pulled down to a fine stringer and it still maintains its colour saturation.  For a saturated black, this is a surprisingly easy colour to melt and shape.  It does contain chrome, so be sure to take this into consideration.  If you want a chrome free black, check out Eclipse, 9977.  Eclipse is less saturated than Raven, but is a highly workable chrome free black.

Working Tip: Work in neutral flame. If you flash heat in a reducing flame as you finish the project you can produce a look similar to the sheen of a raven's wing.

GA Disco Sparkle Single Rod

Disco Sparkle, 9958 is an exciting sparkle colour. It is a concentrated silver metallic colour in a clear base. This allows Disco Sparkle, 9958 to be mixed into almost any colour. While many people use the colour full strength, others mix it down as much as 10 parts of clear (or colour) to 1 part of Disco Sparkle, 9958. Even if using the rod full strength it is best to remix the colour prior to using for a smooth, highly reflective surface.

Working Tip:  Disco likes to be worked cool as to avoid yellowing... Treat it like a Crayon colour.

GA Portland Grey Single Rod

Portland Gray, 9992 was developed to fill a hole in the borosilicate palette. There were no grey rods available and the pre-forms went almost white... how could you make a believable shark? So we made the first opaque grey; we chose neutral # 5 on the grey scale as a starting point.

Working Tip: Per-heat in outer flame.  Avoid rapid heating.
