Dark Velvet Ltd Run (511610)<br />An intense transparent purple.

An intense transparent purple.




"I had high hopes for this glass- Dark Velvet- a transparent dark purple that reads as black when just lying around on the bench. Strongly backlit- it is a beautiful, intense, violet-purple. However, it melts out as a more traditional dark amethyst berry juice colour." Read more at DragonJools blog. – Dwyn Tomlinson

I used Dark Velvet as the backing color that I then backed in white. It features some dichroic and a touch of Glow glass. The bail and back is finished with DH Aion.

"Dark Velvet is perfect for beads such as lotuses. When used on top of white and/or encased with a transparent, the color lightens. It is a nice - but actually very dark- purple. By working the color on the lotus style bead, I could see bubbles forming. I may have overheated it, but I find that the bubbles make it more fun."

"The purple cane is a base of CiM Peace rolled in Violet Storm frit with stripes of African Violet and Dark Velvet."
Caroline Davis
"Dark Velvet is a wine kissed grape. The transparent is extremely saturated with color. Used as starting point for enameling, the glass base color transitions nicely when combined with purples/pinks. The glass can be pulled into a stringer, then used to create accent dots which also showcase the velvety color. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
Heather Sellers
"We did some murrini using Dark Velvet as the stripes. The color really held up, even as quite fine stripes."

"This dark, almost black transparent glass has a definitive purple base that is very obvious once you thin the glass by pulling a stringer. The base of the glass has a black look but in thin parts of the bead [around the bead hole] it is very apparent that the glass has a dense purple foundation."
Liz DeLuca
"The bead on the left is self-coloured, the next is over white, the next is over clear. It is purple when thinned out. Probably best for cored cane and shards. These uber-dark transparents would all work well as shards you know." Read more at DragonJools blog.
