"I started with a base of Slate encased with Double Helix Terra2. After the multiple dots and encasement, the glasses produced deep blue reactions." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Slate is a very pretty transparent light grey-blue. A nice user-friendly glass. No bubbling, scumming, shocking or other glass naughtiness." Read more at Laura's tumblr.
