NS-085 Poppy is the most eye catching, saturated, and easy working member of the intense opaque family. It is a deep Halloween orange great for stringer applications and thin blown work. It is hardly sensitive to flame chemistry, but it must be worked carefully to prevent boiling. Encasing with clear is another method to shielding the color, but not necessary. Poppy can be easily worked on the surface and will not boil or scar if worked carefully in a soft flame. For a nice color effect layer your favorite light Ruby over the surface of NS-085 Poppy.

Purchased some Poppy first quality rods through Mountain Glass Arts, works like absolute butter! Very opaque even when pulled into stringers, melts very evenly and smoothly with moderate-heavy heat. Very difficult to get to boil, super fun color to work with especially ontop of other colors, very bright!
