Northstar Boro Purple Urple Full Rod

Purple Urple First,

NS-101 Purple Urple is a dark purple that looks like NS-80 Hyacinth but works differently in the flame. This opaque purple uses chrome based technology but does not have cracking problems. It is great for blown work and thin stringer application. It is heat and flame sensitive so it must be heated up slowly to prevent boiling. Once it glows red, NS-101 Purple Urple will take heat well. Because of its intensity it is sensitive to reduction. If the flame is not oxidizing enough, grey and brown streaks will develop on the surface of the glass. Try it with a layer of NS-32 Violet for a deep purple effect.

Northstar Boro Double Amber Purple Full Rod

Double Amber Purple First,

NS-026 Double Amber/Purple is the more intense version of NS-013 Amber/Purple. It produces the most exciting metallic purples and vermilions. It behaves similarly in the flame as regular Amber/Purple but because of its greater intensity more care has to be taken to prevent reduction. Double Amber/Purple can be stretched further and can be blown relatively thin without losing the vibrant purple strike. Be sure to try layering Double Amber/Purple over NS-081 Blue Caramel.

Northstar Boro Silver Creek Full Rod

Silver Creek First,

NS-105 Silver Creek is a silver based colour which produces the most exciting metallic purples and vermilions as well as silvery greens and blues. It is a very stable colour. It behaves similarly in the flame as NS-13 Amber Purple and NS-26 Double Amber Purple, but because of its greater core range, more care has to be taken to prevent reduction and boiling. NS-105 Silver Creek can be stretched and can be blown relatively thin without losing the vibrant colours. Try using with other colours to achieve multi layered colour combinations.

Northstar Boro Mystery Aventurine Full Rod

NS-078 Mystery Aventurine is a brilliant aventurine colour that strikes to deep purples and reds. When thinned it turns a pale yellowish amber. Mystery Aventurine is well suited for blown work and stringer application. It is not overly sensitive to reduction and is best worked in a hot neutral flame. For the best strike, kiln striking is the way to go. When using this colour heavily encased keep work time to a minimum and kiln anneal thoroughly. Mystery Aventurine looks great over NS-076 Onyx and NS-054 Star White.

Northstar Boro Star White Full Rod

Star White First,

NS-054 Star White is a creamy fully opaque white. It is an indispensable colour in the palette for all applications. It is great for sculpture, stringers, blown work, and backings for all transparent colours. With several reformulations Star White has been turned into an easy colour to work. It is atmospherically stable meaning it can be worked in any flame without the colour being affected. To prevent any boiling issues, heat NS-054 Star White slowly and gently. Once the colour is glowing it can take a lot of heat. The trick is patience with a soft flame!
