About Walnut, 8475
Walnut, 8475 was a later release. We were receiving many requests to create a color that matched the saturation of Cobalt-5, 515 in a brown tone. Recognizing that this was an important color, we did several months of development work and were very pleased to introduce Black Walnut, 8475. A deep rich opaque brown, this color works well in many applications and has become an important part of our lineup.
Working Tip: Work in neutral flame to avoid reduction (gray wisps).
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"This color is a saturated what you see is what you get opaque deep brown.
It works very nicely in all flame atmospheres and in both blown and solid work. It melts into itself easily and is great for detail applied by stringers and in larger applications. Walnut seems opaque but when blown thin or applied in very thin stringers it will show its translucent quality.
It can be worked for long periods of time without encasement and with heavy manipulation. This is one of the staple colors in the earth toned palette Glass Alchemy has to offer." - Mike Shelbo
