NorthStar Amber/Purple – COE 33 – NS013
Amber/Purple: Of the striking colors in the borosilicate palette the Amber/purples are some of the most exciting. NS-13 is the first in a series of five Amber/Purple colors. It is well suited for sculpture and moderately thin blown work. The color can produce pale yellows to ambers to a deep purple. To yield the most vibrant purples, work in a hot neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Reduction will affect the strike. Try encasing your favorite Amber/Purple with NS-32 Violet, or NS-31 Lavender. To enhance NS-13 Amber/Purple try backing it with NS-54 Star White.
