Ruby Glass Rod


Ruby is a medium intensity striking ruby. It is good for most blown work and can be worked relatively thin without washing out. Because it is more saturated, Ruby must be worked in a moderately oxidizing flame to prevent muddying or liveriness. To strike Ruby, a kiln is recommended. For a great color combination, try layering Yellow over Ruby. For extra brilliance, back the ruby with an opaque such as Caramel or Bubblegum. Available in 1/4 lb increments.
