Default White boro tube?

Does that exsist? I want to make all white sculptures but can't find white tube. Is there such a thing or do you have to make it or something?

Thanks,
Kitty

you can buy white tubing. It's generally more expensive than the transparents. Here is the Glasscraft links to a couple sizes and different types of white:

a couple things you may want to know before you order Asian white.

Asian Jade white and Asian white are not the same thing.

Jade white looks like a watered down white. like they mixed regular white with clear before they pulled it. i never tried it so that all i can say about it

Asian white is a dense solid white that can be shocky in tubing so it helps to warm it in the kiln before working it and garage or anneal as so as done working it. Things that i would bench cool with other color or clear without a problem break with the Asian white.
and from what i read there are sometime bad batches what are sometimes worse or have compatibility issues. that the down side to Asian made tubing.

Jade wide is the preferred white with the blowers here. Lots of good reports on what we carry with return cusomers

If you don't want or like to use Asian glass, Northstar keeps us pretty well stocked with Star White Tubing also.
