English Ivy is a light transparent aquamarine color, that when used in the flame, can yield many color hues. This color is in the same family as NS13 Amber Purple and NS03 Multi so the color possibilities are endless. English Ivy produces metallic blues and sea greens. When reduced, this color can yield earthy reds and browns. We recommend using an oxidizing flame to achieve the most vivid color. Because it is more saturated than NS13 Amber Purple and NS03 Multi it will react much more quickly to the particular chemistry of the flame so be careful not to over reduce. To yield other interesting effects, try encasing it with clear or backing it with an opaque color like NS54 Star White. This color can be stretched thin, so it is well suited for delicate blown work, stringer application, and cane work.
