Northstar Boro Cherry Odd Full Rod

Cherry Red Odd

NS-065 Cherry is the most eye-catching member of the intense opaque family. It is a bright candy apple red that is well suited for stringer application and blown work. Cherry is slightly sensitive to reduction, so work in a soft neutral flame. Cherry is however heat sensitive so it must be worked carefully to prevent boiling. Encasing with clear is another method to shielding the colour, but not necessary. Cherry can be easily worked on the surface and will not boil or scar if worked carefully in a soft flame. A nice colour effect to try is a layer of NS-037 Rootbeer over NS-065 Cherry.
