Star White is a creamy, fully opaque white. It is an indispensable color in the palette for all applications. It is great for sculpture, stringers, blown work, and backings for all transparent colors. With several reformulations, Star White has been turned into an easy color to work. It is atmospherically stable, meaning it can be worked in any flame without the color being affected. To prevent any boiling issues, heat Star White slowly and gently. Once the color is glowing it can take a lot of heat.
Available in Rod, Frit, Fine Frit, Powder, and Hand-pulled tube.
