"Trade Winds is a rich, saturated dark blue teal. Really a lovely color." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"The bottom row contains the test beads of each of the nine glasses, the bottom bead of that glass alone, in the middle covered with clear and top on white. The beads on the other mandrel are my typical test beads that I do when I want to know how colorful some translucent glass is as a thin layer. Even though I tried to capture the colors as truthfully as possible, the shades are a little different than what they are in reality. At least on my screen." Read more at Maikki's blog.

"You can see that the self-coloured bead is very dark - it might as well be black. Use this to good effect in stringers and twisties. Very pretty colour when diluted with clear or white." Read more at DragonJools blog.

“I have used a small footprint of Trade Winds to form the core of these little beads. The encasing layer is very thick but the core colour is a deep and gorgeous intense blue none the less.” Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass’ blog.

"This deep kingfisher blue is gorgeous but like Leaky Pen it does have a tendency to pit and fizz whilst in the flame; you just need to keep working it and the pitty-fizziness will stop happening. It etches with no trouble at all." Read more at Laura's blog.
