Steel Wool is a unique addition to the borosilicate color palette. It is a funky, bumpy color rod that turns smooth when melted. It has tons of sparkle and can be mixed with any color to add a sparkly shimmer to any piece. Steel Wool can be used in all applications with no cracking issues but use caution in deep encasement. Northstar recommends using a neutral/oxidizing flame for Steel Wool. Use in the back of the flame and try a reducing flame to cut down on boiling. Try mixing NS20 Dark Cobalt with Steel Wool to get a very nice blue sparkle. A little hand mixing of Steel Wool will give you the color you desire.
