Blue Moon is a favorite striking color in the Northstar palette. When worked in an oxidizing flame Blue Moon yields bright metallic blues. When worked in a neutral flame it yields bright hazy greens. When worked in a heavily reducing flame Blue Moon produces a nice ash gray. It is well suited for stringer application, blown work, and sculpture. Be sure to try encasing NS-45 Blue Moon with clear or NS-09 Yellow for great effects.

Blue Moon has always been one of my favorites. It takes some practice to get used to how it works but once you master it there are many uses for it. You have to use a super oxidizing flame to keep it dark blue until you are ready to get other colors to come out. It's fun to draw dots or lines on it when it's dark blue then reduce it a bit to bring out some of the grays. You can also keep it dark blue and right at the end reduce it a tiny bit to get the metals to surface giving it what looks like a mirror finish.
