Jasper Red, 132
About Jasper Red, 132
In honor of our 20th Anniversary, we are bringing back select retired colors for a limited time!! Jasper Red, 132 is now available.
Jasper Red was originally created out of the desire to bring the red tones found in nature to you. We started with the stones found on the coast of Oregon. Jasper brings a variety of red hues with splashes of yellow and purple.
Working Tip: Work hot for organic effect, kiln strike 1075° F.
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"This deep opal ruby is a striking color full of variations depending on working time, thickness of color application, kiln time and temperature.
Working this color heavily while unencased may bring metal to the surface. Since there is a good amount of copper in this color you can get a range of streaks from reds, pinks, brown red, to a deep wine color that will sometimes seem black.
These possibilities of organic looking coloration make Jasper Red great for sculpture work that could resemble objects and creatures found in nature. Kiln time and temperature will further strike your piece to deeper reds and darker rubies." - Mike Shelbo
