Bashful Ltd Run (511625)<br />A transparent greyish purple.

A transparent greyish purple.




"CiM calls this a pale purple - which personally, I just don't see. I see a very pale grey/brown that reminds me of the color of champagne, or black diamond crystals. . . . I only saw the tiniest amount of scumming if I heated the end of a stringer too long or too hot. As with most pale transparents, use a delicate hand when heating, and you'll be fine."

"It does appear to be a slightly different colour as a worked/annealed glass than as an unworked rod. I also had a tendency to air bubbles. Just couldn't get away from the tiny swirls of very small bubbles." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"This photo was taken in natural daylight and you can really see the subtle purple tinge where the light shines through the glass. The purple in Bashful isn’t a red-purple like that of the Effetre Amethyst family but slightly more of a violet blue-purple. It doesn’t do that neodymium colour shift in different lights either, like lavender glasses do." Read more at Laura's tumblr.
