Purple Luster, 386 was designed to provide you with a vibrant purple upon striking.
Working Tip: Get this color white hot to erase the striking history. A variety of effects are achievable depending on how long you flame/kiln strike.
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"Purple Luster is definitely one of my favorites and can be many colors depending on how you use it.
I like the color best unencased because of the ability to use the flame to control how much blue will be on the surface. This color has silver in it, so the amount of reduction you use in your flame settings during the making of the piece will determine how much silver fumes over your work as you manipulate it.
Encasement can yield results of softer, more gradient tones." - Mike Shelbo
Each rod is 20 inches long and approximately 7mm in diameter
