660773 Glass Alchemy Grape Borosilicate Glass Rods.
Grape was one of the first tones in the borosilicate palette. Grape is a dark translucent rod and the rich nature of it's color really pops when applied over white. In sculpture it will reflect black and transmit purple light. Grape is great for coiling bubbles and making solid color tubing sections. Also for solid sculpture and marble work. Grape is one of the only borosilicate colors available that works almost identically to clear glass in the way that it is smooth and creamy, melts easily, holds it's heat very well and can be worked for very long amounts of time in the flame and the kiln without any fatigue to the surface of the glass.
Working Tip: Work this color in a neutral flame to avoid reduction (gray streaks). Also available as a frit. Size: Diameter 7mm, length 20". There is a 1/4 pound minimum per color. All Glass Alchemy rods are first quality.
ATTENTION: Due to the weight and length of the rods you may receive .30 pound vs .25 pound (as an example) when ordering. This will cause the cost to rise and the amount you expect to pay for your glass may change
If this is a problem, please let us know and we will “under weigh” your glass. This means instead of .25 pound you may receive .20 to .22 pound. Please be aware that it is almost impossible to pull exactly .25 pound. We will always try our best to get as close as possible to the weight that is ordered, but due to the factors stated, these weights may substantially increase the total cost of your order.
