Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Montezuma was melted to re-create Prussian Blue (which was a happy accident), this time with more silver added.

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

"This navy is incredible and works beautifully with silver glass. A stunner for sure."
Juliette Mullett
"Montezuma is a great remake of Prussian Blue. Maybe even a bit nicer."
Suzy Hannabuss
"Just on its own this glass is a lovely colour and one of those lacking in the lampwork palette, navy blue. Trouble free in the flame. The beads on the left have silvered ivory and Triton on the surface and have been heavily reduced. The larger bead is partly dark ivory and I've also added some silver wire. The beads on the right are Montezuma with silver foil on half of each bead along with Triton, reduced, and then encased in Effetre clear."

"Montezuma is similar to a past colour called Prussian Blue. I think it is pretty close but has even more colour variation between deep blue and teal green. As fine stringer over Ra it looks teal all the way. From left to right: Ra with Montezuma wraps, Ra / Montezuma with silvered ivory wraps, Montezuma with silvered ivory wraps, Montezuma on its own."
