Pink Slyme is a translucent pink-purple that strikes with a milky haze. All Slymes prefer a soft flame to prevent boil and scumming, and Pink seems to prefer a soft neutral flame with less gas than the green version. Once up to temp you can go to a sharper working flame. Pink Slyme will be more transparent when worked in an oxy flame, and will strike with more milky haze when reduced. She will also look much hazier and whiter under encasement. Just like the green Slyme, the Pink Slyme has a slightly higher COE – please test in your applications. She does not always like to be thick on the outside of clear, especially in applications with acute angles. Pink Slyme looks bluer over darker base colors and pinker over white or light colors.
