White Opal Glass that Creates Amazing Effects
The special formulation of Red Reactive glass creates stunning effects in your art by taking advantage of chemistry and heat. As the particles of adjacent glass melt, the elements in Red Reactive Glass respond to neighboring glass containing copper and cause a color change where they meet. This reaction appears as a red-tone line or halo that can vary in intensity depending on copper content, temperature and time. Copper is present in many blue and blue-green glass colors, however not all contain enough copper to cause a noticeable reaction.
