BE - 0321 Pumpkin Orange Opal Rod
May React With
Copper, Lead, Silver
In cold rod form, the color of 0321-0576 can vary even within the same production run.
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.
Torch: This style may start off as light orange, consistently developing a bright, squashy color upon use in the flame. Depending on the color of the bead when it is put away, a range of colors may be achieved. If this glass is put into an annealing kiln with a red hue, then a true pumpkin orange color will result in the finished piece. If it is very light orange as opposed to red and the desired result is a true pumpkin orange color, gradually cool and reheat the glass without bringing it to a soft state, look for it to turn red and then put it into the annealing kiln.
Kiln: Lighter color and greater opacity than in sheet glass form. Slight variation in color with different production runs.
