BE - 0216 Light Cyan Opal Rod
Slightly translucent opalescent.
Torch: To avoid reduction, work in a neutral-to-oxidizing flame atmosphere. Can turn rust color in reduction.
Kiln: Working properties and kilnformed characteristics are consistent with sheet glass. At full fuse, capped or uncapped, the mottling disappears and the color is consistent, even and pure. At slumping temperatures and low-tack fusing temperatures (1150-1325°F/621-718°C), gray clouding may occur, similar to Steel Blue Opalescent (000146), especially where contamination from oils and/or cleaner is left behind during the cleaning process. Solution: cap this color with clear or test for each specific application. The clouding can be erased from an uncapped piece by capping with clear glass and firing to a full fuse.
