Northstar-70 Ice Blue is a lush copper blue that has an unrivaled eye catching appeal. It is a light transparent color but it adds great optical depth even in thin layers. It is not suitable for stringers or cane work, but it is great for sculpture and blown work. Its effect as an overlay color is impressive. To keep Ice Blue from dulling or discoloring, work in an oxidizing flame. If worked in a neutral to reducing flame the color will darken and develop reddish brown striations in the body of the glass.
Rods are approximately 7mm in diameter and 19 inches long with approximately
