Sacre Bleu is described as a "bright transparent blue "

Testers reported

  • "Sacre Bleu is a transparent rich royal blue. It’s not as saturated as Effetre’s transparent Cobalt 060 and the closest thing to it I’ve ever used has been Effetre’s Intense Blue from many moons ago. Sacre Bleu melts really nicely and it’s not as stiff as Effetre’s Cobalt. No shockiness or bubbling." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

    "Sacre Bleu was very easy to use - only slightly stiff, but melts smoothly and evenly. It layers extremely well, with no feathering, bleeding, spreading, pitting, etc. I also didn't have any problems with the rods shocking." Read more at Kandice's blog.

    "It is another beautiful transparent blue aptly named as Sacre Bleu Ltd Run described as a bright luminous blue and it does not disappoint! If you like this color, I suggest that you order some quickly before it sells out! I tested it with lots of 99% fine silver wire and Double Helix silver infused Kronos frit. The encasing to capture the silver glass reactions was done with Double Helix Aether clear glass." Read more at Darlene's blog.

    "I dare you not to say the name of this glass in your head without a crazy french accent. It is impossible I cannot do it! This is a beautiful middle blue glass. I used it as a base for these wings, it made a gorgeous base for the luster I used. Sacre Bleu melts beautifully with no shocking or bubbling."

    "I've enjoyed playing with this rich royal blue transparent, it is such a pretty colour. The real big difference with this glass and other transparent blue glass colours that I have worked with before is just how very well behaved it is in a hot flame. There was no boiling, scumming or micro-bubbles at all. These floral hearts are made with a solid Sacre Bleu and decorated with twistie cane petals." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass's blog.

    "This transparent blue from CiM - a replacement for the Neon Blue, is a beautiful, beautiful shade of blue, and exactly, EXACTLY, I say, matches the new colour that Swarovski is launching this spring called 'Majestic Blue.'" Read more at DragonJools blog.

    "Sacre Bleu melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. It is a gorgeous blue color. It was so pretty on both the Peace and the Dark Ivory. It looked about the shade of cornflower blue on the Peace and more of a light royal blue on the Dark Ivory. With Kalera’s Romance frit it created a nice organic colored bead. With silver foil and the Dancing Dreamer Frit the bead is stunning, what a great base with silver foil for Dancing Dreamer."

    "Sacre Bleu is a transparent Winsor blue. The rich color exhibits jewel-like tones similar to that of a precious sapphire. Very similar to the now unavailable Royal, but with the slightest hint of regal violet. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." Read more at Heather's blog.

    "CiM describes this as a bright transparent blue, and I can't disagree. At first glance I thought this may have been very close to Effetre Cobalt, but Sacre Bleu is a brighter colour, and is comparable to Bristol Blue Glass [Google it]. The difference is more obvious in daylight, but in your studio with Diddys on you could mistake them. A fuss free colour, easy to work. The Peace dots [shown over Foam] do have slight rings inside them, but the edges were crisp. The silvered ivory stringer sits nicely with no reactions."
