Messy testing - Sacre Bleu and Serenity ltd run

This beautiful transparent blue glass is called Sacre Bleu ltd run, it is a new glass colour coming out from Creation is Messy in a few weeks time.

I've enjoyed playing with this rich royal blue transparent, it is such a pretty colour. The real big difference with this glass and other transparent blue glass colours that I have worked with before is just how very well behaved it is in a hot flame. There was no boiling, scumming or micro-bubbles at all. These floral hearts are made with a solid Sacre Blue and decorated with twistie cane petals.



These tumbled hearts have been made with a small core of Sacre Bleu encased in a thick layer of Effetre oo6 clear glass. They have been tumble etched in a rock tumbler with silicon carbide grit for a couple of hours. The little heart imprints have created a glossy indent where the rich blue give a really interesting visual highlight.
Half of these Sacre Bleu hoops have been tumbled etched with silicon carbide grit in a rock tumbler to give them a sea glass finish. I like the matt finish but prefer the glossy finish in with this colour.

Sacre Bleu is a really close match for Neon Blue ltd run which came out in early 2014.
I just love this colour, I am a real big fan of bluey green and greeny blue and all things aqua when it come to glass and Serenity ltd run ticks the prettiness box for me! It is another brilliantly behaved colour in a hot flame which also suits me well. Not a sign of boiling of bubbles at all.
Both Sacre Bleu and Serenity are so easy to work with.

These hearts are made with a base of Serenity which I have decorated with swipes of twistie cane for petals.

Half of these Serenity hoops have been tumbled etched with silicon carbide grit in a rock tumbler to give them a sea glass finish. I have strung them side by side for comparison with the glossy ones, both look great to me.
 
Serenity is a very good match for the now impossible to find Breeze ltd run colour that came out in spring 2013.
