Merryweather is described as an "opal blue"

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Merryweather is a unique addition to the 104 glass color palette.
Merryweather is a new color to the 104 palette. It is similar to Electric Avenue, but a bit less saturated. It is also close in color to the Alabaster Dark Turquoise, but without the nasty bubbling and no need to work it extremely cool. – Paula Schertz
There is no color like it in the 104 palette. – Caroline Davis

"Oh be still my heart, this blue just glows. There is no color like it in the 104 palette. It is brighter and bluer than Electric Ave. It melts beautifully with no shocking or bubbling."

"Merryweather is a pretty aqua opal. I've squashed it pretty thin - so it is bordering on transparent, but used thicker, I think you will get more of the translucent quality of the opal. It's a super pretty aqua, and of course, the Effetre colours don't really have much in the way of opals /translucents." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Some Merryweather hoops that I have tumbled etched with silicon carbide grit in a rock tumbler. Many opal glass colours do not etch easily or even at all with Etchall or other commercial chemical etching products. I tend not to try that method any longer for opal colours and head straight to the grit! As you can see here Merryweather also looks great with a matt finish." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Merryweather melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. Encased with Pulsar, it is a beautiful aquamarine shade. It is a gorgeous shade of light aqua on Peace and a more turquoise color on Dark Ivory. On the Dark Ivory it has a dark rim around the dot from a color reaction. It was a pretty base for the Kalera’s Romance frit blend with organic colors. Merryweather with silver foil and Secluded Glade frit is very pretty with green and rosy brown shades."

"I had to work Merryweather a little cooler to avoid boiling the glass. Also, Merryweather basically did not etch at all." [Bottom strand was an etching attempt.]

"Described as an opal blue this sits somewhere in between Electric Avenue & Poseidon. It's a very cheerful shade of blue and one I'm quite excited about ... I admit to being just a tiny bit keen on bright colours. OK, very very keen. This melted without any issues and was a joy to work with. As it's an opal colour I was keen to see how it would play with other glass, Frost is a perfect match. The first on the left is a thin layer over Frost, and the next one is a core of Merryweather encased with Frost. Both of these are light and still translucent! The next two are solid Merryweather,  the one far right with a band of EDP that also sits well without any adverse reaction!"
