BE - 0124 Red Opal Rod
Slight variations in cold color from one production run to another.
Torch: Lighter color and greater opacity than in sheet glass form. Keep it bright red by working with a neutral to oxidizing flame atmosphere. Can turn gray in reduction. A range of color can be achieved by variations in heatwork in a single piece.
Kiln: Lighter color and greater opacity than in sheet glass form.
This style is not suitable for kilncasting because it can become incompatible when held at high temperatures for an extended period. It may also become incompatible in instances where processes exceed the parameters of the test for compatibility. Testing recommended when heatwork exceeds these parameters.
