Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"Silver Strike-5 will yield a range of color from creamy beige and tan to golden yellow and light browns.
Soft highlights of blue and light purple come from working the color on the surface. Also, leaving this color unencased will allow you to reduce (heavy propane flame) to a metallic silver and golden brown metallic." - Mike Shelbo
