NS-48 Light Blue Amber/Purple is the least saturated of the five Amber/Purple colors Northstar produces. It yields a light purplish blue strike. Work in a hot neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Reduction will affect the strike. Light Blue Amber Purple is not well suited for thin blown work but best suited for sculptural applications. NS-48 Light blue Amber/Purple looks great over NS-54 Star White and NS-81 Blue Caramel. For a complete guide to working NS-48 Light Blue Amber/Purple refer to the Northstar bead brochure and Northstar Newsletter issue 3 for more tips.
