Pound and 1/4 Pound Minimum Items
Items labeled in this manner are sold by weight at a price per pound. The price you see is the pound price. You will be charged for the actual weight of the product you receive. If you wish to order a specific number of rods, tubes, sticks or the like, enter that information in the comment box upon checkout. We will do our best to accommodate you knowing how many pounds you want (from the shopping cart) along with how many tubes/items you want from the comment box.
Finished work can range from opaque to translucent to transparent in the same piece from the same rod of color; the milky strike that gives so much visual depth and the rich color where the milk strike is burned away. Unlike the regular Slyme, the Blue Slyme keeps more of its color under clear encasement. The biggest difference between the new Blue Slyme and regular green Slyme is the flame - you will want to use a bushy NEUTRAL flame instead of a lot of reduction. Like most colors in the Slyme family, this glass is a little bit soft, meaning the COE is a little bit high, maybe a point, point and a half.
