Product Information
Glass Rod - Amber Lustre.  

These luxurious rods have a metallic sheen that can be coaxed to the surface in the torch by finishing with a reduction flame. Due to the precious metal content, lustre rods are more costly. Formulated solely for flameworking with Bullseye rods, they are not part of the tested Bullseye Compatible line for kilnforming.

Each rod is approximately 42cm long and 4-6mm in diameter. Please note these rods are not suitable for fusing.

Working Notes:

Torch: A reducing glass that can develop a metallic sheen with an amber cast. Begin by working this glass in a neutral flame. When ready to develop a metallic sheen, the glass should be relatively cool (no visible heat) and stable on the mandrel. Create a reduction atmosphere by turning the propane (fuel) up and watch for the surface of the glass to become metallic. Once this has happened, the piece should be put into an annealing kiln. This is a finishing step. If the metallic surface is reintroduced to a neutral flame, it will dissipate. It can be brought out again by returning it to a reduction atmosphere. When molten, this glass has a low viscosity, and can be quite soft, which may result in a blurred edge where it meets other glasses. In addition, the process of reducing the glass can cause a metallic sheen over areas of glass immediately adjacent to this style.

Kiln: Not recommended for kilnforming.

Other: Labelling is encouraged, because this glass stays deceptively clear until reduced.

Lustre rods are not part of the Bullseye Compatible line for kilnforming and are formulated solely for flameworking with Bullseye rods.
