Double Passion, 783 Rods
Double Passion provides the artist with an easy to control amber to purple striking color. Since Double Passion is less saturated than its older sibling Triple Passion, it does not strike as dark as fast, providing you with the opportunity to develop intense pink and magenta colors.
Working Tip: Get this color white hot to erase the striking history. A variety of effects are achievable depending on how long you flame/kiln strike.
Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"This transparent color can strike and shift in color simultaneously because of the perfect mix of ingredients similar to those found in Triple Passion.
Striking a bit slower than its Triple counterpart, you can see more yellows, ambers, oranges and pinks. The amount of silver in the color allows you to have a surface buildup of wispy and cloudy bursts of light blues and cream colors that can be controlled by the amount of propane in your torch flame setting.
When worked very hot, you are left with an intense pink or magenta color. Your Double Passion will transmit light of different colors depending on how much the base color strikes and how much silver you let rest on the surface. This color works well in blown or solid application, with or without encasement." - Mike Shelbo
