Cold Characteristics

Light blue-lavender. May have a hint of the struck color. Slight variations in cold and flameworked color from one production run to another.

Working Notes

Torch: Work in a cooler, oxidizing atmosphere. Once formed in the flame, if Light Fuchsia has not struck, cool the glass in the flame until it is stable and behaves more like a solid. Gently reheat then cool the mass while looking for its color to deepen. Light Fuchsia strikes more reliably in larger applications, such as a core bead.

Kiln: Rod-only glass style. A linear, streaked design may develop upon firing and may be visible whether fired lengthwise, or on end. Color usually deepens on firing. Possible dark interface reaction with selenium and/or sulfur glasses. 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.  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.
