Black Lightning is a very dense black with silver. Black Lightning can yield a mirror like blue metallic finish or if over-reduced an organic earthy tone. To keep Black Lightning most vibrant, work 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 seconds to produce the mirror like sheen. For another great effect, encase Black Lightning with clear. This color can be stretched out and is great for blown work. If heavily encased, be sure to anneal thoroughly. This is the bigger brother of NS-111 Alaskan Thunder.

Jet Black is a very dense black. It is well suited for sculptural applications and blown work. It is creamy and works easily, making it a welcome addition to the palette of blacks from which to choose. When working Jet Black, do so in an oxidizing flame. If worked in a reductive environment it will develop gray streaks on the surface and result in a dull matte finish. When applying the color, do so gently. After it is melted in it can take a lot of heat. Jet Black is great in combination with many colors and serves as a background for striking colors.

English Ivy is a light transparent aquamarine color, that when used in the flame, can yield many color hues. This color is in the same family as NS-013 Amber Purple and NS-003 Multi so the color possibilities are endless. English Ivy produces metallic blues and sea greens. When reduced, this color can yield earthy reds and browns. We recommend using an oxidizing flame to achieve the most vivid color. Because it is more saturated than NS-013 Amber Purple and NS-003 Multi it will react much more quickly to the particular chemistry of the flame so be careful not to over reduce. To yield other interesting effects, try encasing English Ivy with clear or backing it with an opaque color like Star White.

Ursa is a response to our artists who have been asking for an opaque brown. Due to environmental concerns, we have experimented with the alternatives to the industry standard cadmium based brown. We have formulated NS-140 with a good working viscosity, as well as dense color saturation to help the artists explore this earth tone. As with many opaque colors this glass can suffer from boiling issues if pushed too fast or hot.

Both flame and color stable, this glass is a yellow tinted clear glass in natural light, yet fluoresces a brilliant yellow under a UV light source. For best results, use a 365nm-395nm LED flashlight. This glass does contain uranium.
