Product Information
 3mm Bullseye Transparent Sheet Glass - Light Pink Striker. 

One of the strongest pinks of the Bullseye palette, a bright happy bubblegum pink, which matures to target colour after full firing.

This glass style requires a longer initial hold time during firing to reach the target colour - please see the working notes below.

Contains:
Lead
 
May react with:
Sulphur
 
Cold characteristics: 

Varies from lighter to darker. Generally lighter and slightly more blue/pink than 1311.

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.

I full fire this on top of small pieces of dichroic "reds" (such as Candy Apple Red) to get a great depth of colour for jewellery pieces.

I was initially very disappointed with this glass, as it came out slightly dirty purple. However, reading the instructions to hold the first ramp at 663* for two hours, made it the colour I was wanting, though a little dark for a "light" pink. Very annoying if you have only one small item in a firing, to have to hold for 2 hours. So I put the whole sheet in, took it up to 663* over 2 hours, and cooled. It had developed its full colour! so I took it out cut it and used in subsequent firings at normal speed. It kept its colour and didn't devitrify. Bingo!!
