Fruit Punch Ltd Run (511730)<br />A brownish orange-red cloudy transparent.

A brownish orange-red cloudy transparent.




"Another cloudy transparent, this time in an unusual, slightly brownish, orange-red brick kind of colour called Fruit Punch. The glass was quite stiff to work with but apart from that, which is just an observation and nothing negative, it was great to use. The beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight."

"The torso is Fruit Punch over an Effetre 048 transparent base. Air bubbles in Fruit Punch melt out fine. Specks of opaque [boiling?] form, probably when the glass gets too thin as when flamecutting rod or stringer. Easy to pluck out with fine tweezers."
Laurie Nessel
"Fruit Punch is described as a reddish brown cloudy transparent but I found that it lightened substantially while I worked it and came out looking more like a cloudy pinkish peach colour. In general, I have found the Cloudy Transparent colours to be a bit shocky. For the most part, this was quite manageable and well worth the effort, at least for the colours I've tried so far. Heather is the one that I've had the most trouble with out of this group. Another thing common to all of these colours [so far] is that they can be easy to boil, so you really have to watch your heat. This is true not only with fine stringer, but also when applying the glass from the rod to your bead. Work higher up in the flame and a bit cooler to avoid this problem. I have not specifically tested any of these for colour reactions yet. When I do, I might find out something interesting, but so far they do not seem very reactive with other colours."

"Fruit Punch is a gently-colored, lightly-swirled, orangey-pinkish brown. Yep, hard to describe but so delicate and unusual."

"Pink Lemonade on top, Morgan in the middle, and Fruit Punch on the bottom. All perfectly lovely to sculpt with."
