Stag is a very dense, bright opaque white that retains its opacity even when fairly thin. However, it will show texture when honeycombed or in thin stringers in a marble. (For a smoother dense white, choose TAG-033-33 Whiteout.) Stag works up smooth despite graininess in the rod although it can retain a visual texture, and it resists boiling once brought to temp and kept hot. Stag works fine in all flame atmospheres; however, a cooler flame is suggested for all boro whites.
