"I could see Sunset striking as I worked, but it doesn’t really seem to unstrike again so I got a more uniform colour than I was expecting." Read more at Heather Kelly's blog. – Heather Kelly

"This is a beautiful coral that’s very easy to work with. It stays shiny and doesn’t get dark streaks like some corals." – Gloria Sevey

"Sunset is [in my head] what an orange glass should be. It's not streaky, it's not too bright and it behaves itself. I had no cracking issues when I encased it and like other CiM oranges such as the wonderful Creamsicle, it works wonderfully as stringer. You can't do stringerwork with Effetre orange. [I mean their actual opaque orange; not their countless 'corals'.]" Read more at Laura's blog.

“And here we have, from the left, base of Sunset, ivory dots, and on the right, base of Sunset, turquoise dots. No significant reaction between the ivory and the orange, and the turquoise - that has developed a heavy, dull, leaden look to it.” Read more at DragonJools blog.

"The good news is that as far as I can see, Sunset doesn't have the cracking problems that all the Effetre 420 odd corals have. But it does have the same lovely, juicy, saturated orange that we find in those Effetre coral oranges." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Sunset Ltd Run is a lovely rich and bright coral orange that puts me in mind of ripe Persimmon. It reacts with silver leaf very strongly to give a dark caramel brown organic stain on the glass in the places where the silver has been vapourised away in the flame."
