Northstar Star White is a creamy fully opaque white. It is an indispensable color in the palette for all applications. It is great for sculpture, stringers, blown work, and backings for all transparent colors. With several reformulations Star White has been turned into an easy color to work. It is atmospherically stable meaning it can be worked in any flame without the color being affected. To prevent any boiling issues, heat NS-54 Star White slowly and gently. Once the color is glowing it can take a lot of heat. The trick is patience with a soft flame!
Rods are approximately 7mm in diameter and 19 inches long with approximately 12 rods per pound.
Also available in size fine (70 mesh) frit in 1 and 4 ounce increments.
Artist description by Roger Child – This is a beautiful opaque white. It is not sensitive to the flame atmosphere but may bubble and boil if heated too quickly. Start warming this color gently in the outer reaches of the flame. Then gradually move to the hotter parts of the flame as you work this color to minimize the bubbling and boiling. Layer other colors over white to enhance the colors and get some beautiful and unique effects.
