A transparent blue.




"Royal is so very well behaved in the flame. I work quite hot and can have trouble with scumming and micro-bubbles with transparent blues because of this but Royal melted beautifully and totally scum free without my having to work cooler at all." – Jolene Wolfe

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Royal was engineered in response to requests for a "transparent version of Ming."
"Royal is definitely a transparent Ming in my opinion." – Heather Sellers
I think Royal is a bit too dark to be described as a transparent Ming. – Jolene Wolfe
"My brain can’t make that comparison [a transparent to an opal]. This blue is a dream of a blue and, to my way of thinking, is what a deep transparent blue should look like. It’s gorgeous and falls somewhere in between Neon Blue and Sapphire. I love it!" – Gloria Sevey
Ming is darker than Royal. I don't think "Ming" when I look at Royal. – Melanie Graham
Royal is an exact match for Vetrofond Intense Blue, a gorgeous color that etches beautifully. Not all of the dark blues do, so I'm really glad you are making this one. The Vetrofond was one of my favorites. – Celia Friedman

"Note how French Blue has a clear reaction to the silver wire while the Royal shows the silver clean and sparkling with no reaction marks." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"This.is.THE.colour. This is it - the blue. The perfect blue. You can all pack up and go home now - it's done. This is the colour. That perfect shade of blue, like cobalt, but cobalt is sometimes too dark to be useful. This is that perfect shade, and perfect hue." Read more at DragonJools blog.

“Royal is a rich, jeweled hue similar to a sapphire. Like most transparent rods, the glass was stiff in nature. When applied over a pastel white base, the deep, jewel-tone dot work appeared lighter, however the color remained clean without bubbling or distortion.”
Heather Sellers
“Royal is a rich gem toned mid transparent blue unlike anything else I have come across in the 104 palette before.” Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass’ blog.
