Product Information
1mm Bullseye Blue Opalescent Stringers.  

This is a remarkable colour which stays blue when fired under a transparent glass or when overglazed, providing it is covered when fired. It also forms a pewter metallic film at lower temperatures if left uncovered. See the 'Special Effects - Steel Blue Opal' tipsheet, and start experimenting!

Bullseye compatible glass stringers - 1mm diameter.

Standard Pack : Contains a minimum of 30 stringers

Economy Pack : Contains a minimum of 123 stringers

Stringers, threads of glass pulled from remelted Bullseye compatible sheet, can be used for lines or patterns in 2 or 3 dimensional kilnformed or torchworked projects. Bend with a candle or use straight from the tube.

Approximately 44cm long.

Contains:

Copper

May react with:

Sulphur, Selenium

Cold characteristics: 

Consistent colour.

Working notes: 

At tack fusing temperatures, the surface frequently develops a metallic grey film. This usually disappears at full fusing temperatures. To avoid metallic filming, use an overglaze or cover with thin clear glass. To maintain the metallic effect, fire as quickly and low as possible. Consider stencil spraying of an overglaze to create patterns of metallic and non-metallic blue. Dark interface reaction likely with sulfur glasses (001137, 001437, 000137).

All our glass is COE90, Bullseye Glass compatible and suitable for warm glass applications such as glass fusing, glass casting and glass slumping (unless otherwise stated in the description).
