Product Information
Glass Rod - Red Orange Transparent Striker.

This is a rich, blood orange transparent, which matures to its target colour on firing.  For a pinker shade, try Sunset Coral Striker (1305).

This is a rod-only glass style.

Rods can be used in torchworking and 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.  

This colour is a striker.

Working notes: 

Torch: Strikes to a red-orange in the flame. Keep this glass transparent by using it in small amounts with minimal heatwork, or adding it near the end of the time in the flame. Before it is put into an annealing kiln, check that the glass has truly struck; it should appear very dark, almost black. If it is still light in colour, gently cool and reheat the glass without bringing it to a molten state and watch for the glass to darken as it strikes. We advise labelling all striking glasses.

Kiln: Rod-only glass style.  Generally fires deeper (more red) than cold. May opalise in kilncasting, when exposed to excessive heatwork.

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).
