Northstar Red Exotic – COE 33 – NS029
NS-29 Red Exotic: The Exotic family contains the most saturated striking colors in the Northstar family. NS-29 Red Exotic produces a deep metallic burgundy. As with the other exotics work them in a super oxidizing environment until you are finished with the piece. Then, turn the flame down and bathe the piece in a super reducing flame for several second to produce the mirror like sheen. Another great effect that is possible with the Exotics is encasement with clear. This group of colors can be stretched out and is great for blown work. If heavily encased, be sure to anneal thoroughly. Exotics are also enhanced by a backing with NS-54 Star White. NS-29 Red Exotic differs from the rest in that kiln striking will amplify the red qualities. Try layering NS-23 Pink over Red Exotic!
