Product Information
3mm Bullseye Transparent Irid.  

Violet Striker maintains some transparency when it matures to its target colour on firing. From the blue shade of its cold form, this colour fires to a strong violet, darker than the soft Light Violet Transparent.  

This glass with an iridescent surface will add dimension, pattern and surface to create a unique and eye-catching piece of glasswork.

Permanent at full fusing temperatures it is also food safe for functional tableware. 

Contains: 

Lead 

May react with: 

Selenium, Sulphur

Cold characteristics: 

A deep royal blue colour.

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).
