Working Notes

This style may not reveal (or strike to) its target color until fired. This style may not reveal (or strike to) its target colour until fired.

Colour usually deepens on firing. Possible dark interface reaction with selenium and/or sulfur glasses  (0137, 1122, 1125, 0124, 0125, 1137 and 1437)

Less viscous (softer) than most other glasses. Some gold-bearing striking glasses, like this one, should be fired with a 2 hour hold at 1225°F during the initial stages of the firing cycle. If fired without this hold, they may not strike at all, or they may strike but appear spotty and have a blue-brown cast, as opposed to the desired target color. This full-fuse schedule effectively strikes these glasses:

Rate Temp Hold
* 1225 2:00
600 1490 :10
9999 900 **

* The initial rate of heat is not a critical factor in successfully striking gold-bearing glasses. Choose an initial rate of heat appropriate to the scale and design of the project that you are firing.
