Stonewashed Ltd Run (511580)<br />A cloudy transparent blue.

A cloudy transparent blue.




"Stonewashed is the perfect name for this glass, it looks just like your favourite pair of denim jeans that have been washed many times and fit like a glove! It's one of their new technology cloudy colours, made by mixing clear glass with coloured pigments and as a result provide us with a beautiful streaky effect glass. When used just on its own, the blue soon builds up and gives the effect of a more solid colour.  If you add it over a small clear core, it allows the light to shine through and the beautiful wispy effects are more apparent. A beautiful glass that will no doubt be a popular addition to many glass studios. This melted without issue, working in a cooler flame is better suited to this type of glass." – Trudi Doherty

"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 Stonewashed 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 Lake Baikal, another blue]. So if you are going to encase the blues over white be sure to put them directly from flame to kiln, do not allow to cool too much."

"The Stonewashed was shocky, but the color! I would happily pick up chunks and pull stringer to get that blue. So I did. I will try annealing the rod and see if that helps."
Lori Peterson
"I love Stonewashed! A little shocky but manageable for me with preheating. No issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on surface of the bead!"

"This is a lovely soft blue denim colour, the sort of shade you would only have found in the Bullseye range before. I love the colour. However I found it very shocky to start with. After attempting one bead I put the end of the rod in through the bead door of my kiln. Once the rod was warm it was much easier to use. I did find that I needed to be careful not to over heat the tip of the rod in the flame otherwise I got a bit of bubbling which led to a pale patch on the surface of the bead, but with a bit of care there was no problem. It was necessary to put the end back in the kiln between beads to keep the glass warm."

"A beautiful stonewashed denim hue with a hint of grey that is very subtle. I am not aware of any other colour like this from any other brand. I had forgotten to preheat this colour and found it incredibly shocky when gently introduced in the flame, I lost around 1 inch with shockiness. I then put the rod in the kiln for a few minutes to pre-warm and by doing this I prevented any further issues with shockiness. Once pre-warmed the rod melted beautifully and like butter. It can produce both pale and darker hues depending on volume of layers applied. By building up layers of this glass it will give a more opaque look but with some transparency. I preferred the built up look. It looks incredible with silver glass. Once glass was applied and worked the colour did take on a grey tinge, however once retrieved from the kiln after annealing the grey tinge had disappeared completely."

"Stonewashed was not shocky poppy at all and was easy to blow and shape."
