TAG-104-06 Black Cherry. This red glass kiln-strikes into a range from light red to super-dark antique ruby red. Can be reduced. For best results, bring red back up to a high, even heat (transparent) to "reset" the strike (especially if you have any spots of red from flame striking) before placing in the kiln. Kiln striking is dependent on a relationship between time and temperature: in general, the hotter the faster. But too long and/or too hot can cause livering. Rods look variegated; TAG have intentionally pre-struck part of each rod for colour verification at the factory. TO DETERMINE STRIKE TIME FOR YOUR BATCH OF BLACK CHERRY: Bring empty kiln up to your usual annealing temperature. Make a small bead, then bring it up to high even heat for "reset", and cool it enough to place in the kiln. After a half-hour or so, check it every ten minutes. When it reaches the colour you want, make a note of the time. That's how long you will want to anneal your Black Cherry beads to achieve the perfect red! We suggest you make your Black Cherry beads at the end of your working session, and then run the anneal cycle long enough to kiln-strike your red at the same time.
