It can range in color from a pale silvery blue to an opaque to a sea green all the way to cloudy gray. It is well suited for flame striking and produces wonderful results. Because it is so intense be sure to keep a hot oxidizing flame set. Reduction will affect the strike. Try it over NS-54 Star White.
