An opaque soft blue.




"In comparing Duck Egg on its own as spacers, the color is on the blue side, although these spacers were in the kiln near the silver glassed fumed beads as well. When mixed with combinations of silver glass and ivory, the base glass is fumed to shift the color to a opaque golden green pastel." Read more at Darlene's blog. – Darlene Collette

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Duck Egg is unique to the 104 color palette. We have had many requests for a "blue" Dirty Martini and this fits the bill.
Duck Egg is a gloriously olde-worlde shade that is a totally new addition to the currently available 104 colour palette. – Jolene Wolfe

"Duck Egg is an interesting greeny grey, a soft fog colour, and similar to copper green. The 5xx series number would tend to indicate that CiM considers it to be a blue, and you could make an argument for it being a blue grey - like a colonial grey as well. Best to hedge your bets and call it a grey with a blue-green tone." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Like most opaque blue glass it has streaks running though it but there’s absolutely nowt I can do about that. In the words of Bruce Hornsby, that’s just the way it is." Read more of Laura's testing.

"As you can see in the spacers, Duck Egg can striate a little bit, but that will disappear when layering the glass. If you melt in dots and leave them uncovered, you may get lines of separation, which can be pretty as part of the design. Beyond that, Duck Egg is a dense color, which means it stays opaque when layered, and holds the shade well. No bleeding or pitting from what I can tell, also." Read more at Kandice's blog.

“Duck Egg initially bore close resemblance to Dirty Martini, however the glass is stair-step shade on the darker side of the color.”

“Duck Egg is like a blue toned version of Dirty Martini [Dirty Martini shown here on the left and Duck Egg on the right].” Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass’ blog.
