GA 1933 Half Blood 7mm – COE 33 – Cane

Pricing is per pound. Available in 7mm rods.

Half Blood, 1933 is a half strength version of the much loved self striking Dragon’s Blood. This color has been designed to strike back to a rich ruby red in the flame. Working Tip:¬†This color will strike back as it cools. Half Blood will strike to a deeper red in the flame or kiln.

Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
“The half strength equivalent to Dragon’s Blood, this is an essential for my color palette. I have always been a fan of deep copper rubies and when GA Half Blood emerged I was excited to have a beautiful striking copper ruby that was more prone to staying vibrant and transparent than going dark or toward liver when worked for a long time. I have been able to get an array of finishes from different combinations of color layer thickness and kiln time and temperature. Half Blood works well in all hollow and solid applications and under deep encasement. So far my favorite combinations with GA Half Blood are when it is paired with either Paparazzi or Agua Mist.” – Mike Shelbo
