Northstar Plum Krazy is a dark transparent faux purple that strikes to a rich smokey blue. Work in a cool oxidizing flame to prevent overheating and striking the color. When ready to strike, either kiln at 1050*F or bathe the glass in a gentle bushy neutral flame to bring out the soft blue strike. This color is best suited for moderately thick coil-potted work and sculptural applications. When encased in clear this color produces a vibrant violet with wisps of metallic blue. Be sure to try it over Northstar Star White or Northstar Blue Caramel. Prolonged reduction leads to a grayish blue opaque surface.
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.
