Northstar Ruby – COE 33 – Large Frit NS007
Pricing is per 4 oz. jar.
Ruby is a medium intensity striking ruby. It is good for most blown work and can be worked relatively thin without washing out. Because it is more saturated, NS-07 Ruby must be worked in a moderately oxidizing flame to prevent muddying or liveriness. To strike NS-07 Ruby, a kiln is recommended. For a great color combination, try layering NS-09 Yellow over NS-07 Ruby. For extra brilliance, back the ruby with an opaque such as NS-44 Caramel or NS-62 Bubblegum.
