Cleopatra Ltd Run (511623)<br />A dense and saturated transparent purple.

A dense and saturated transparent purple.




"Cleopatra is a vivid amethyst. The dark purple leans toward the red-violet region on the color chart. Like most transparents, the glass is stiff. The rich hue can easily be showcased when used to encase a lighter base color." – Heather Sellers

"This dense transparent purple base glass is very dark on its own. For the round bead, second from the left, I used a clear core before adding Cleopatra in order to give the bead more definition by diluting purple. It created a great transparency for both the hue and the texture of the twisted storms." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"I am in absolute love with this supersaturated, dense royal purple. It truly is nice to find a purple that is genuinely gem toned and does not get muddy or leans toward being dull. Very vivid, but also extremely dark. The large bead is a hollow bead and as you can see, it is still not very transparent. The two beads in the front are encased Moretti Periwinkle with Cleopatra stringer, and then encased in Moretti super clear. The rear bead is white Moretti encased with Cleopatra stringer encased in Moretti super clear."

"While I tested CiM Cleopatra, I thought about Effetre Dark Violet and my test results with that colour, and the first very significant difference I noted was that Cleopatra is redder than Effetre Dark Violet and more of a true 'purple' shade, at least when it's used over White."

"Every shade of transparent purple that you see in these beads has been created with Cleopatra. . . . All in all Cleopatra is a very pretty and versatile colour." Read more at Kitbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Cleopatra is a very saturated transparent purple. Almost too saturated. You need to pull it out into stringer, or layer it over other glass in order to see its actual colour." Read more at Laura's tumblr.
