An opaque pale blue.




"Little Boy Blue is gorgeous. It has streaky striations, but that’s normal for opaque blues. It’s soft and smooth to work with and I experienced zero pitting or fizzbubbling with it. I’m absolutely in love with the colour - a soft blue with a touch of grey-green about it." Read more at Laura's tumblr. – Laura Sparling

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Little Boy Blue is an attempt to replace Duck Egg [now sold out]. Testers say we came very close.
Little Boy Blue is meant to be a replacement for CiM Duck Egg. I’ve only ever used Duck Egg once so I’m going by my colour memory here but I reckon Little Boy Blue is pretty flipping close to it, so mission accomplished, Creation is Messy! – Laura Sparling
Originally intended to be a re-make of Duck Egg, it's close but Duck Egg is lighter and has more green/grey tones. That said, if you are out of Duck Egg, Little Boy Blue will be a fabulous alternative for you. – Trudi Doherty
Little Boy Blue is a new color to the 104 palette. It is similar to Duck Egg, but a bit more blue/green. – Paula Schertz

"Little Boy Blue melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. It is a beautiful color. Little Boy Blue is a great base for frit. It makes a fabulous base for Triton scrolls."

"What's not to love with Little Boy Blue. It's a soft pale grey with sumptuous blue tones [can you tell I like it!]. It melted with no issues in the flame. Another one to add to my wish list!"

"This colour is just divine, so versatile, looks fabulous with so many colours, both light and dark, both opaque and transparent. Centre bead: clear, Little Boy Blue, Val Cox First Light frit, stringers of DH Triton. Encased beads either side of the centre bead: clear, Little Boy Blue and Val Cox Isabella frit. End beads: Little Boy Blue and Triton."
