Northstar Boro Nile Full Rod

Nile First

NS-089 Nile is a unique organic version of our NS-013 Amber/Purple. It yields rich earthy tones and burnt amber hues. It is well suited for blown and sculptural applications, but it is not saturated enough for thin stringer applications. It is also useful as an overlay colour. When working NS-089 Nile use a hot oxidizing flame. It can be flame or kiln struck to yield a rich “glazed pottery-like” finish. It is also interesting to note that when this colour is coiled, the coil lines are virtually unnoticeable and it yields a truly uniform surface. Be sure to try it over you favourite opaque.
