Sharing some glassy eye candy. Because, why not?
Copper ruby light (R-244) and pastel blue violet (R-170). This is a relatively new discovery. Just noticed these sitting next to each other one day and thought it was so great. Copper ruby light is beautiful and tricky to work with because the environment of the gloryhole has to be just right as to not burn the imparted gold... Or else it turns livery and brownish.
This is a little different, but I think it works! Cobalt blue is one of those iconic colors that I usually find difficult to use. What do you think?
This is not a color combo per se, but I had to share because the color is so beautiful! This is a paperweight I made out of glass that has been recycled out of all of the transparent colors mixed together. As you probably know, glass can be melted and reused, but you probably didn't know that it turns some shade of blue if there's any remaining metallic oxides left. Depending on the batch, you might get a dark blue effect like you see here, or sometimes you get a light blue result. The pinks, reds, yellows.. etc will burn out when heated over 2000 degrees. It's not like pigment, where if you mix all the colors together, you get a shade of brown!
I have a pop up coming up! I will send a newsletter out soon!
