Salmon Pink Opalescent Kiln Glass
May React With
Color range from paler to deep shades. Some variations from pink to brown tones. Slight mottling on back of sheet.
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:
* 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.
Fusible / Bullseye-compatible.
Salmon Pink Opalescent Frit
Frit made from cadmium or gold base glasses may show some variation in color within the grains, which can be more noticeable in the larger grain sizes. This is due to the wide range of color acceptability in these glasses.
