Product Description

Create with Premium Bullseye Glass!
Premium handmade Bullseye glass is ideal for high-quality kiln work. Specifically formulated and tested for compatibility, this glass withstands multiple firings for complex projects without devitrification. The flatter double-rolled surface minimizes bubble entrapment, so colors can be layered for custom hues. A subtle "catspaw" texture allows modest light transmission when used in stained glass projects, creating an organic look.

Bullseye Gold Purple Opal  is a lead*bearing glass that may react with glass that contains Sulfur/ Selenium bearing glass. The standard thickness is 3 mm. 90 COE.

Note: Striker glass matures to the color shown upon firing. Colors may vary, depending on firing schedule, rate, atmosphere, and heat work. For color-sensitive projects, test before use.

Platter shown by artist Helen Clock, from Delphi's Online Artist Gallery.

  •   Great shade of Purple
By on
Pros : Upon firing turns a marvelous shade of tanzanite purple.
Cons : Very costly, as are most reds and purples
Other Thoughts : This glass is rather unusual, as in the description, in it's pre-fired form it looks med-blue, but when it is fired it turns into a lovely purple-blue, like a tanzanite color. It closely coordinates with Swarovski's Tanzanite color. Great glass to do smaller fusing projects like pendants and earring because higher costs. It is well worth it to make the investment, if you like the end color.

  •   Bullseye gold purple
By on
Pros : The glass, when I fired became a very pretty purple. I used 3 different sheets of this glass and they all turned purple.
Cons : The cost, it is expensive! You have to realize that the word gold in the name means something.
Other Thoughts : I fired each piece numerous times without putting any clear glass on top. I also fired the glass in the range of 1390 degrees to 1450 degrees, each time I fired the glass the purple became a deeper color of purple. I liked working with this glass it comes out very glossy, like most of Bullseye glass.

Amy Ferber from Bullseye Glass visited Delphi last week, and the Reactions were fantastic. She was here to give a free presentation about using Bullseye Reactive Glass. The two hour interactive presentation included a video, and a chance to look at samples of reactions that were created using a variety of techniques and different materials and what class would be complete without a pop quiz? Attendees were asked to review the samples and identify what was used to make them. Everyone had a fantastic time. After the presentations I was able to sit down with Amy for a few minutes and talk. Here are a few of the questions I managed to sneak into her whirlwind vist Q What is the COE of Bullseye? A Although many people like to categorize glass neatly by a COE number, compatibility is actually more complex than that. Bullseye kiln glass is around

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn
