These features and many more have allowed Agua Azul, 446 to become one of the finest opaques in the borosilicate world.

Working Tip: Work this colour in a neutral flame. Garage at 975° F, Anneal at 1050° F.

GA Peacock Single Rod

Peacock, 546 was designed as part of a series of 6 blues and greens to provide a range of hues and intensities that would work well with each other as well as set off the bright crayon colours. An easy to work dark opaque blue that is often copied but never duplicated.

GA Brilliant Blue Single Rod

We altered the refractive index to make this a vibrant blue. It plays well with all colours, especially silver ones. This is a must have for any studio.

GA Grape Single Rod

Grape, 773 was one of the first purple tones in the borosilicate palette. Grape, 773 is a dark translucent rod and the rich nature of its colour really pops when applied over white. In sculpture it will reflect black and transmit purple light.

GA Beryl Single Rod

Beryl, 833 was designed as an organic colour to fill a huge hole in the borosilicate palette. A colour that is seen (but not often noticed) in nature and called retro by those that recall the oil lamps and cruets of the 60's, Beryl, 833 makes a great bead colour, is useful as a tint or sculptural colour.

GA Walnut Single Rod

Walnut, 8475 was a later release. We were receiving many requests to create a colour that matched the saturation of Cobalt-5, 515 in a brown tone. Recognizing that this was an important colour, we did several months of development work and were very pleased to introduce Black Walnut, 8475. A deep rich opaque brown, this colour works well in many applications and has become an important part of our lineup.

GA Sienna Brown Single Rod

Sienna Brown, 864 was one of our first six colours. An elegant brown created to fit into the mostly transparent palette at the time, this colour easily falls into several colour schemes. It becomes deeper in tone, approaching black as it is melted into larger gathers.

GA Black Violet Single Rod

Black Violet, 974 was part of Glass Alchemy's initial introduction of colours. At the time the market needed a black that did not boil and we introduced 3 new blacks to choose from. Black Violet is a deep translucent that is extremely workable, great for beads and other sculptural projects. It is popular because it flows together without transition lines, is very shiny and the surface does not easily reduce.

GA Raven Single Rod

Raven, 9749 is our densest black.  This colour can be pulled down to a fine stringer and it still maintains its colour saturation.  For a saturated black, this is a surprisingly easy colour to melt and shape.  It does contain chrome, so be sure to take this into consideration.  If you want a chrome free black, check out Eclipse, 9977.  Eclipse is less saturated than Raven, but is a highly workable chrome free black.

Working Tip: Work in neutral flame. If you flash heat in a reducing flame as you finish the project you can produce a look similar to the sheen of a raven's wing.
