The focal is Surf's Up mixed with Peacock Feather and Frost to give it a layered look like water. Spacers are plain Surf's Up. Faceted rounds on the side have a little Peacock Feather and Frost.

"In testing, I found no pitting or boiling and hardly any issues with shockiness. I experienced the teeniest amount of the very tip of Peacock Feather popping off but warming it in the back of the flame seemed to do the trick and subsequent meltings seemed to be fine. Once again my pleasant surprise that the silver wire I use .999 does not seem to effect these glasses and gives that lovely contrast and elegance with no reactions. These glasses are also part of the pairing system of Misty Opals and what I call Milky Opals. They have the same base batch but then one is tweaked to either remain more translucent while the other keeps more opacity. Overall these colors all offer us a beautiful gradient color palette in which to create with! Whoever said you can have too much of one color was clearly not an artist!"

"Surf’s Up is a misty opal blue with just a tinge of green. It catches the light beautifully."
Gloria Sevey
"Surf's Up is the misty opal version of Peacock Feather and it's a really lovely bright blue with a touch of green about it. The glass was really well-behaved with no shocking. I also had no 'blue fussiness' trouble with cooling and reheating and was able to do so without any troublesome scumming occurring." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Surf's Up is such a beautiful opal blue, reminiscent of the Mediterranean Sea, with a beautiful inner glow. Have put this colour through the test using with several other colours with no problems whatsoever. Similar hue to Paradise."
Juliette Mullett
"This is a beautiful misty opal blue, the counterpart to the translucent opal Peacock Feather. Compared to the other misty opals, it is more saturated in colour, but it is slightly more translucent than my picture has captured. It really is a gorgeous shade of blue and melts like a dream!"
