A transparent blue with red and pink cloudy transparent pigments added.




"I was apprehensive about Lake Baikal in rod form as the red inclusions seemed very hit and miss and subtle, but this is what makes this glass beautifully unique. Yes, the inclusions are subtle, but these blend in so beautifully with the lavender hues that surround it. This allows the light to bounce around the inside and give off a pretty inner purple glow, it really is beautiful. I preheated this rod, as I suspected it would be quite shocky. No issues whatsoever, melted at a lovely consistency, not too stiff but not buttery. A unique colour that will appeal to a lot of people, I don’t know any another colour like this with these kinds of inclusions. Lake Baikal is a must have for all glass lovers that like something a bit different." – Juliette Mullett

"Lake Baikal is a gorgeous blue. This colour is a light version of CiM Sapphire. All of the new cloudy transparent glass is so much nicer to work with then the last batch. They are not shocky at all. When I encased Lake Baikal over white, it cracked. I put that down to leaving it out of the heat too long before putting it into the kiln. The other colours did not crack when encased over white [except Stonewashed]. So if you are going to encase Lake Baikal over white be sure to put them directly from flame to kiln, do not allow to cool too much.""

"I got a plum purple with Lake Baikal layered over a bright transparent purple [not the color I expected but lovely]. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on surface. The red and pink cloudy transparent pigments were not visible in the bead I made."
