Product Information
3mm Bullseye Sheet Glass - Ruby Red Tint (Striker).  

This tint matures after firing to a slightly stronger pink than Ruby Pink Tint Striker, although the tint remains fairly soft. This glass fires a very pretty shade, effective used as a single 3mm sheet or layered with other colours, such as Indigo Tint or Light Amber.

Cold characteristics:

Appears close to clear with blue/green tints.

Contains:

Lead, Sulphur
 

May react with:

Selenium, Sulphur
 

Working notes:

Colour usually deepens on firing. Possible dark interface reaction with selenium and/or sulphur glasses (0137, 1122, 1125,0124, 0125, 1137, 1437). Less viscous (softer) than most other glasses. Some gold-bearing striking glasses, like this one, should be fired with a 2 hour hold at 663°C during the initial stages of the firing cycle. If fired without this hold, they may not strike at all, or they may strike but appear spotty and have a blue-brown cast, as opposed to the desired target colour.  This full-fuse schedule should effectively strike these glasses:

Rate Temp (C) Hold
* 663 2:00
333 810 :10
999 482 **

* The initial rate of heat is not a critical factor in successfully striking gold-bearing glasses. Choose an initial rate of heat appropriate to the scale and design of the project that you are firing.

** Remainder of cycle depends on the thickness of the piece. Consult the Bullseye Annealing Chart. For colour-sensitive projects, we recommend testing the cycle you plan to use by fusing a small sample of a similar setup in the same kiln as the project to best predict final colour results.

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).

I'm aware I'm the only person who's reviewed this but I can't get enough of it! I find there are very few pink colours throughout the glass range but this really is pink not just "close enough, it'll do", it's actually pink! Definitely give it a try.

The colour is very similar to the picture but is a bit richer in colour, I really like it!
