“From the left, two self-coloured beads, and on the right, a clear core. This dark aqua is really dark, and shines over clear. . . . I didn't have any problems with it bubbling or boiling, but I generally don't with aquas.” Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Marine is not too stiff, but is a bit more finicky than I prefer. It has a tendency to bleed a little bit when encased, and spreads somewhat when layered in dots. It's not unworkable, though - just needs a bit more attention when using as decoration. The color is so lovely though, that it makes up for the extra attention needed." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Marine did not take too well to being flame polished after being chilled in the brass press that I used to make the flat tab shapes. Until that point it was fuss free and didn't pit or bubble in the slightest like many transparent blues and aqua glass can. I think I pushed it just that little bit too far and worked just a little too hot! . . . Marine really comes into its own when used to make tiny tiny dots." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"I always fear that a green-blue glass will bubble and pit when heated but Marine didn't. It's smooth and bubble free and is lovely to work with. It reacted with the turquoise and this can be seen very well in the polka dotty bead; the turquoise has done its darker-in-the-middle thing but more than it usually does." Read more at Laura's blog.
