Fires to a beautiful rich ruby red tint. Each Bullseye billet is approximately 127 x 254 x 19mm and weighs about 1.5kg. The three stacked billets in the picture demonstrate the increase in colour saturation with thickness. In kiln casting, the form and particle size of the glass selected can strongly influence the appearance of the finished piece. For maximum clarity, the rule of thumb is to use the largest and thickest forms of glass. Smaller glass particles increase obscurity due to air trapped between the pieces.

Appears close to clear with blue/green tints.
Matures to a consistent ruby red tint. Some striking glasses like this one need to be fired slowly during the initial stages of the firing cycle. If fired too fast 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. A standard full-fuse schedule should work to strike these glasses (Temperatures in ºC):
*Remainder of cycle depends on thickness of piece. Consult the Bullseye Annealing Chart. For projects that are especially colour-sensitive, we recommend fusing a small sample, with a similar setup in the same kiln, to best predict final colour results.
Please note the weights of the billets can vary quite a lot so we recommend that you over compensate if you need a specific weight.
