Cold Characteristics

Appears transparent and clear in its cold form. Occasional wisps of white are possible.

Working Notes

Fusible / Bullseye-compatible.

Requires a full fuse to strike to a hazy, milky white that transmits warm-hued light. Transmitted light varies based on thickness: Thinner pieces result in a yellow-ish hue, thicker pieces in a warmer almost orange hue. Opacity increases with extended heatwork.

Overlay Information

Opaline has great potential to expand the color palette in kilnforming because it has the ability to create new colors with distinct properties. For more information, see Opaline Overlays.
