Cerulean Sparkle Ltd Run (511560)<br />A transparent blue with gold aventurine.

A transparent blue with gold aventurine.




"The sparkle version of Cerulean looks a fraction darker [surprising as I'm guessing the same batch was split?], and looking at the rod it is filled with tiny silver sparkles!! Again this melted with no issues at all, but sadly the sparkles do not show up at all. Perhaps more sparkle was needed in the mix?" – Trudi Doherty

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Cerulean Sparkle is Cerulean with the addition of gold aventurine frit.
There’s not an awful lot to say about this glass. Cerulean Sparkle is a transparent aqua with the addition of aventurine. If you’re looking at the photo and wondering where the sparkle is, there isn’t any. There’s a micro-particle of spangle here and there but it’s barely noticeable. Like CiM Elixir Sparkle, I think this is because there isn’t enough aventurine in the glass. – Laura Sparling

"The aqua blue colour itself is pretty and it’s a touch darker than Effetre transparent Light Aqua 034. It behaves like all other aqua glass - it doesn’t like repeated cooling and reheating because it scums if you do this, so it’s best to keep it nice and warm. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.
