Northstar Ice Blue is a lush copper blue that has an unrivaled eye catching appeal. It is a light transparent color but it adds great optical depth, even in thin layers. It is not suitable for stringers or cane work, but it is great for sculpture and blown work. It's effects as an overlay color are impressive. When added over Northstar Blue Moon, it produces a very appealing blue. To keep Ice Blue from dulling or discoloring, work in an oxidizing flame. If worked in a neutral to reducing flame the color will darken and develop reddish brown striations in the body of the glass.
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.
