Contains

Lead

May React With

Selenium, Sulfur

Cold Characteristics

Varies from lighter to darker; sometimes with lighter dappling in single-rolled sheets. Generally lighter and slightly more blue/pink than Cranberry Pink Transparent (001311).

Working Notes

Color usually deepens on firing. Possible dark interface reaction with selenium and/or sulfur glasses (000137, 001122, 001125, 000124, 000125, 001137, 001437). Less viscous (softer) than most other glasses. Some gold-bearing striking glasses, like this one, should be fired with a 2 hour hold at 1225°F during the initial stages of the firing cycle. If fired without this hold, they may not strike at all, or they may strike but appear spotty and have a blue-brown cast, as opposed to the desired target color. This full-fuse schedule effectively strikes these glasses:

Rate Temp Hold
* 1225 2:00
600 1490 :10
9999 900 **

* The initial rate of heat is not a critical factor in successfully striking gold-bearing glasses. Choose an initial rate of heat appropriate to the scale and design of the project that you are firing.

** Remainder of cycle depends on the thickness of the piece. Consult the Bullseye Annealing Chart. For color-sensitive projects, we recommend testing the cycle you plan to use by fusing a small sample of a similar setup in the same kiln as the project to best predict final color results.

Selenium, Sulfur

Cold Characteristics

Pale transparent blue to lavender. In some lighting may look similar to Neo-Lavender Shift (001442-0576), Cranberry Pink Transparent (001311-0576), and Cranberry Sapphirine Transparent (001342-0576).

Working Notes

Torch: 001215-0576 strikes to a transparent pink in the flame. Work in a cooler, oxidizing atmosphere. May develop a light brown color on the surface of the glass if worked in the presence of too much propane (or fuel). Light Pink strikes more reliably in larger applications, such as a core bead.

Kiln: A linear, streaked design may develop upon firing and may be visible whether fired lengthwise or on end. Hue and saturation may also differ slightly when compared to sheet glass; a wider range is accepted due to changes that occur in the forming process.

See Working Notes under Sheet Glass tab for additional firing information. 

Other

The resulting light pink is more transparent than torchworked sheet glass of the same style (001215-50, 001215-30). Consider encasing with clear to protect the surface from developing a light brown color in the hotter, neutral flame chemistry that you would use for most other styles. We advise labeling all striking glasses.
