Product Information
Glass Rod - Pink Opal.  

This is more of a purple pink compared to Petal Pink which maintains a brighter colour after firing.

Rods can be used in torchworking and kilnforming (although this particular style is not recommended for kilnforming), and add an exciting difference to glass work. Drawn from compatible Bullseye glass, each rod is approximately 42cm long and 4-6mm in diameter.  

Contains:

Lead

May react with:

Selenium, Sulphur

Cold Characteristics:

Palest pink with a slight blue cast.

Working notes: 

Torch: Strike this glass to pink by working it in the flame, then cooling it just outside of the flame and then gradually reheating it. Once struck it should be medium to dark pink while it is still hot. If the glass looks white, continue to cool and gradually reheat the glass until it strikes. The pink is easier to strike if it has been worked in a cooler flame to begin with; try to work with it farther out in the flame, away from the nozzle. 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. We advise labelling all striking glasses.

Kiln: 'T' Grade - not recommended for kilnforming.
