Blueberry Muffin Ltd Run (511633)<br />A very dark opal indigo purple.

A very dark opal indigo purple.




"Blueberry Muffin is supposed to be the same hue as CiM Lapis. It seems lighter in most of my beads because I have used it in thin layers over light colours. This colour is pleasantly reactive, and I absolutely think that CiM should keep making it. It's like a deep, dense ink blue with fun reactive potential and I am very excited about all the crazy things we will do together. If I could change anything about this colour it would be to make it more translucent. Even in thin layers, it can look almost opaque." Read more at Melanie's blog. – Melanie Graham

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Many artists requested an opal version of our popular color Lapis. Blueberry Muffin is our first attempt- the result is darker than we hoped for. It's a beautiful royal purple, but very dense.

Claudia Eidenbenz’s "Vetrothek" (glass library) is a great resource for color comparisons.

"Blueberry Muffin is a color I never knew I needed. It is a deep purple opal. In the small heart you can see it almost looks black. However when pulled into stringer it is a beautiful purple color that is the perfect tone for Wisteria and Crocus. I have been looking for a purple that is dark enough to have enough contrast with Wisteria."

"I put some of the new Blueberry Muffin over Goddess to see what it looked like pulled into a stringer. It diffused the Blueberry Muffin's gorgeous intensity into a pretty hue of blue with a touch of purple. Lovely for the flower center."

"Blueberry Muffin is a very densely saturated bluish purple. The disk is Blueberry Muffin on its own and the round is Blueberry Muffin over clear."

"I created some handblown glass shards using Blueberry Muffin with Val Cox Silver Lake frit. The base of these beads is London Fog. The bead with the 99% fine silver wrap has a layer of Silver Lake frit under the shard and it didn’t react as much as the frit did on the darker glass." See more at Darlene's blog.

"Definitely looks like a blueberry hue, probably could pass as a navy, a nice hue that has no competition from other brands."

"Blueberry Muffin is a beautiful dark purple. It is beautiful over Peace or periwinkle blue."

"Blueberry Muffin is very very good in blowing bead. This  bead has soft color. So tasty!"
Olga Ivashina
"In rod form, Blueberry Muffin looks like a very dark indigo-purple. It was engineered to be an opal version of CiM Lapis. When I took these beads out of the kiln they’d lost their purpleness and instead they are a very dark navy blue. Such a lovely colour! These beads are just solid Blueberry Muffin – no layering so they are very dark but I guess you could desaturate the colour a bit by layering it over clear or white or whatever. The scrolls on these ones are Effetre Light Turquoise 232. Blueberry Muffin melted with no issues." Read more at Laura's blog.
