660974 Glass Alchemy Black Violet Borosilicate Glass Rods.
Black Violet was part of Glass Alchemy's initial introduction of colors. At the time the market needed a black that did not boil and we introduced 3 new blacks to choose from. Black Violet is a translucent that is extremely workable, great for beads and other sculptural projects. It is popular because it flows together without transition lines, is very shiny and the surface does not easily reduce. When kept 3mm or thicker, Black Violet will transmit a true manganese purple and reflect back to dense black. This color works nicely as it melts easily and will smooth into itself without trace of where application overlaps.
Working Tip: Work this color hot in a neutral flame. 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.
