Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Sacre Bleu was engineered in an attempt to replace [now sold out] Neon Blue, which was a uniquely luminous transparent blue.
A lovely shade of blue and a great addition to the 104 palette! – Trudi Doherty
It is a new color to the 104 palette. It is similar to Azure, Neon Blue, Royal, Intense Blue, and Cobalt Blue, but the saturation of each is just a bit different. – Paula Schertz
Sacre Bleu is a vibrant dark blue that falls somewhere between Neon Blue and cobalt blue. – Gloria Sevey
Sacre Bleu is a really close match for Neon Blue Ltd Run which came out in early 2014. – Jolene Wolfe
It is similar to Effetre intense blue but Sacre Bleu is a little more intense. – Caroline Davis

"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."
Paula Schertz

"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."

"Sacre Bleu hardly etched at all." [Middle strand shown here was etched.]
