A bright opal blue.




"Andrew is an opal aqua blue that opacifies in the kiln. When I put these in, they were much more translucent. I like this happy, easy to sculpt color." – Lori Peterson

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Andrew is very similar in hue to our popular color Merryweather (now sold out).
  • Special thanks to Claudia Eidenbenz for providing the photo in this section.

Claudia Eidenbenz’s "Vetrothek" (glass library) is a great resource for color comparisons.

"Andrew is a lovely colour. I found that its opacity will change depending on how you heat it. Work it hot and you'll get a slightly paler, more opaque colour. Work it cool to preserve the translucency. I didn't get any shocking so it's easy enough to work both ways depending on the end result you want."
Heather Johnson
"Andrew is a perfect opal shade of powder blue. One of my absolute favourite glass colours from this round of testing. It makes me think of summer skies and sunshine. There is no sign of a reaction with silvered ivory stringer." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Like a milky blue aquamarine, a misty opal that has such a unique colour, unrivalled that is for sure. Just gorgeous."
Juliette Mullett
"Andrew is an opal that is lovely, smooth and no shocking. This is a bit darker than the old version of Poseidon."
Suzy Hannabuss
"Andrew is a bright opal blue that is the exact same colour as Weezer’s debut blue album. Niche but true. The glass is lovely to use. It’s smooth and unbubbly and although it’s an opal it’s quite dense translucency wise. Zero shockiness. Always a bonus." Read more at Laura's blog.
