Northstar Boro Green Exotic Full Rod

Green Exotic First,

NS-027 Green Exotic: The Exotic family contains the most saturated striking colours in the Northstar family. NS-027 Green Exotic can yield a mirror like green metallic finish and if over-reduced a very organic earthy tone as well. To keep the Exotics most vibrant, 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 colours 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-054 Star White. Be sure to try layering NS-007L over NS-027 Green Exotic.

It reacts quickly and produces the lushest purplish blue strike. It can range in colour from a pale silvery blue to an opaque to a sea green all the way to cloudy grey. It is well  suited for flame striking and produces wonderful results. Because it is so intense be sure to keep a hot oxidizing flame set. Reduction will affect the strike. Try it over NS-054 Star White. Another excellent combination is NS-005 Orange hobnails over the surface of NS-069 Green Amber/Purple. There is a lot you can do with this colour have fun exploring.

Northstar Boro Goldenrod Full Rod

Goldenrod First,

NS-084 Goldenrod is a bright, saturated intense opaque dark yellow. It is well suited for stringer application and thin blown work. It is not terribly sensitive to flame chemistry but stay out of overly reducing flames. Goldenrod however is heat sensitive so it must be worked carefully to prevent boiling. Encasing with clear is another method to shielding the colour, but not necessary. Canary can be easily worked on the surface and will not boil or scar if worked carefully in a soft flame. For a nice colour effect layer NS-013 Amber/Purple over NS-084 Goldenrod.

Northstar Boro Garnet Full Rod

NS-086 Garnet is a member the self striking ruby family. Garnet is the medium intensity shade of the three shades of self striking rubies Northstar currently offers. It is best suited for medium thickness blown work and highlights. The self striking rubies are the next generation of colors offering the user cleaner purer colors with less air and difficulty in working. When using NS-086 Garnet, do so in a neutral to oxidizing flame. Once hot Garnet will turn transparent just as the standard Northstar rubies, but as it cools it turns a uniform ruby red. The strike is easily repeatable and the final color is not affected by kilning. Even after numerous reheats no liviering will occur. Note the final shade of red is slightly darker than the initial color of the rod. Once heated and allowed to strike, the final color can be viewed. After prolonged use in sculptural and inside out applications NS-086 Garnet can develop a deep brown hue. This can usually be reversed by heating the color until molten. For a great color effect try layering NS-086 Garnet over NS-085 Poppy.
