  • Description

Walnut, 8475 was a later release. We were receiving many requests to create a colour that matched the saturation of Cobalt-5, 515 in a brown tone. Recognizing that this was an important colour, we did several months of development work and were very pleased to introduce Black Walnut, 8475. A deep rich opaque brown, this colour works well in many applications and has become an important part of our lineup.

Working Tip: Work in neutral flame to avoid reduction (grey wisps)

Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:

"This colour is a saturated what you see is what you get opaque deep brown.
 It works very nicely in all flame atmospheres and in both blown and solid work. It melts into itself easily and is great for detail applied by stringers and in larger applications. Walnut seems opaque but when blown thin or applied in very thin stringers it will show its translucent quality.
 It can be worked for long periods of time without encasement and with heavy manipulation. This is one of the staple colours in the earth toned palette Glass Alchemy has to offer" - Mike Shelbo
