Light Ruby is a vibrant transparent striking ruby. Of the three shades of ruby, it is the least saturated and is meant to be kiln struck. Though it cannot be stretched as far as NS08 Dark Ruby, the advantage it offers is the ability to be worked long without muddying. Light Ruby is not overly sensitive to flame chemistry, but to ensure it strikes to a clean ruby red work in a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. For an interesting effect try layering it over NS27 Green Exotic.
