Trautman Art Glass Working Tips
Fade to Black 033-58
Fade to Black (FTB) is truly a unique and remarkable color within the colored glass palette. The black rod can go clear, white, blue, green, and back to black as it is worked. This is a soft working black that sculpts nicely and can strike into bolts of blue/white lightning in re-heated areas. The final version of this color is much more stable than our experimental batches, however, this is an advanced color, and there are some important guidelines that can help you get the most out of it.
Enjoy playing and experimenting with this amazing color. You will quickly learn how to use heat gradients to bring out the many colors of FTB. Trautman Art Glass, Inc would be grateful to hear about your adventures with this mysterious color!
