Silver Bullet is a look alike of Caramel. It is a rich silvery tan color that can be stretched out thin. It is great for stringer application and blown work. Work in a hot neutral to oxidizing flame for bright tan colors. To bring out the silvery mirror like sheen, bathe the piece in a reducing flame. Try Ruby or Amber Purple over Silver Bullet.
Available in Rod.
