Nile Glass Rod


Nile is a unique organic version of our Amber/Purple. It yields rich earthy tones and burnt amber hues. It is well suited for blown and sculptural applications, but it is not saturated enough for thin stringer applications. It is also useful as an overlay color. When working Nile use a hot oxidizing flame. It can be flame or kiln struck to yield a rich ‰غدglazed pottery-like‰غ‌ finish. It is also interesting to note that when this color is coiled, the coil lines are virtually unnoticeable and it yields a truly uniform surface. Be sure to try it over your favorite opaque. Available in 1/4 lb increments.
