Contains

Lead

May React With

Selenium, Sulfur

Cold Characteristics

A deep royal blue color.

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.

Lead

May React With

Selenium, Sulfur

Cold Characteristics

Transparent light-to-medium blue, similar to Light Sky Blue Transparent (001414-0576). There will be variance in the cold rods as some have streaks of darker blue.

Working Notes

Torch: 001234-0576 strikes to a transparent blue-purple in the flame, but may develop light streaks of purple and/or pink. 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).

Kiln: Blue-violet. 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 color of struck 001234-0576 has more transparency and the hue has more blue undertones than torchworked sheet glass of the same style. 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.
