Anchor Ltd Run (511527)<br />A transparent blue.

A transparent blue.




"Anchor is a deep, deep blue, towards the greener end of the blues - not really enough to be an aqua, but a rich ocean blue for sure. The rods are so dark - they appear almost black, but held to the light, the colour takes your breath away. You really will have to layer it over something to see the colour. Here - the top bead is a twistie of Anchor and white, and the square bead is Anchor and white swirled - and the almost black areas are just Anchor by itself."

You can easily describe Anchor as a bluer version of Leaky Pen. – Jolene Wolfe
Anchor is just a bit more blue than Leaky Pen. – Gloria Sevey

"Anchor is so dark in fact, that it looks black in rod form and in plain spacers. It's even pretty dark when encased in clear. So to lighten it up a bit, I paired it with Effetre Periwinkle, a light cornflower blue that is my go-to for layering with super dark blue colors. This pair makes a really nice layering team - especially in melted-in designs, and as encased stringer." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Anchor is very saturated and I think it probably fulfills its potential best when layered over other colours. This allows its beautiful deep marine blue to shine through." Read more of Laura's testing.

“These two sets show a comparison between Anchor and Leaky Pen under clear as stripe cored beads. Leaky Pen is at the back with Creamsicle detail, Anchor is at the front with detail using Key Lime. Anchor comes out much bluer than Leaky Pen.” Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass’ blog.
