Northstar Orange is a bright transparent striking orange that is well suited for sculpture, bead work, and moderately thin blown work. The striking process is temperature related but in order to prevent any muddying, work in a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. It is recommended to kiln strike Northstar Orange. Northstar Orange looks great over Northstar Star White, and be sure to try layering Northstar Amber/Purple over it.
Size: Diameter 5-7mm, length 20", weight per rod .07 lb. All Northstar rods are first quality.
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 “underweigh” 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.
