Description Tube End and Knuckle Examples

Mai Tai Pink is colorless in the rod, but it changes dramatically in the kiln after being flame worked! Flame strikes to barely amber yellow, but it's designed to change considerably during longer annealing at 1050. May be kilned repeatedly for more color, or ramped up to 1150 to speed the strike. Can also be un-struck in the flame after the kiln cycle for interesting color-fade effects. It is virtually impossible to over-strike this color. Burn off haze for more pinks or leave the haze for more purple effects.

Image #2 is thick and therefore quite richly colored. Image #3 here shows heavy reduction on the surface of a different struck piece. Images #4 & #5 here show the same piece twice, a thinner paddle with the "before" and "after" effects of striking this color in the kiln. Note where Paul burned off the haze, you see more pink there and less purple in the struck piece. The Mai Tais are from the amber/purple family, but with less amber and more pinks and purples.

Tube Ordering Policy
  • Tubing is charged by its exact weight, and you will only pay for what you receive. When we are picking orders we get as close to the requested weight as possible without going over. For example, If you order one pound, we will pick tubing that is 3/4 - 1 lb. and you will be charged by the hundredth of a pound for that glass.

    If you have a specific weight that you need, please request it in the comments section of your order. In these cases it is helpful if you order above your requested amount (i.e. if you need exactly 1.5 lb., order 2 lb., and in the comments section of your order write in a request for 1.5 lb. When we receive your order we will send as close to 1.5 lb. as we can get, and you will only be charged for what you receive.)
