"Prussian Blue with EDP- actually makes it go a bright pink and range in some spots. Doesn't look like much going into the kiln but comes out like this." – Hilda Procak

CiM Tester Feedback

  • Prussian Blue was our attempt to remelt Class M Planet, but the result was quite a bit darker.
It is similar to Class M Planet but in a darker and more intense blue shade. – Jolene Wolfe

"Prussian Blue is a much more intensely saturated navy blue than Class M Planet. The deep color has the same hint of mossy green, however the navy blue is much more intense under the exact same torch conditions. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."

"I paired Prussian Blue with various Double Helix silver glass stringers, frit and powders. Each bead shows a different technique and result based on multiple cycles of reduction creating a truly one of a kind set of beads." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Prussian Blue is the rich, deep navy blue colour that I've been waiting for without even realizing how much I wanted it. It's darker than Lapis Cobalt, it strikes even darker, and when it strikes it can develop a greenish cast that makes it a similar colour to Lauscha Steel Blue. It's wonderful, and I love it."

"When you encase or layer Prussian Blue, the blue tones become brighter and the greens all but disappear. This color makes an excellent layering glass if you want some rich midnight, navy or cobalt blues." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"In my view, Prussian Blue is the colour that has been missing from the glass palette and is almost that elusive navy blue that everyone craves. It’s a great blue!"

"Prussian Blue is a dark easily-mottled streaky blue that will strike greenish. Here it has stayed mostly blue." Read more at Heather's blog.

"I added loads of TAG's Cezanne, Taxco Silver, Double Helix murrini and dots of clear. I worked it hot and rolled and twisted the heck out of it. It resulted in an oil slick reaction which varies depending on the angle. It was a difficult bead to photograph, but lovely in natural light in person." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"When Prussian Blue is hot - it goes blue and green, and looks very much like Class M Planet. Once out of the kiln though - the colours are more of a blue and a steel grey, darker than Class M Planet. Interestingly, the final brush with the flame across the glass brings up a colour that is more like a periwinkle, before it goes in the kiln - but there is no sign of that after it comes out. That actually seems to be where the bulk of the steel grey is after - so some experimenting with heating would be in order, I think." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Prussian Blue is a lovely deep blue in the rod, nearest I have is Reichenbach Iris Dense Blue. A very saturated colour which would work well in twisties. A lovely base for stormed Ekho."
Sandy Fulbrook
"Prussian Blue is a rich blue colour that develops deep green striations and patches when worked." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"When paired with a silver reactive shard and reduced, the surface fumes to a lovely golden sheen."
