BE - 0124 Red Opal Sheet
May React With
Copper, Lead, Silver
See the Bullseye Reactive Potential charts for more information
Color variations common from red-orange to terracotta. Frequently lightly streaked and with yellow mottling on back of single-rolled sheet.
A cadmium/selenium glass. Can react with lead-bearing glasses or overglazes. Possible reactions with 001311, 001215. Much color variation typical upon firing. If specific color is important, always test before beginning project. Use glasses from same dates. Do not assume that sheets of the same color when cold will fire identically.
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.
