1/4 Kilo of Cerulean (Ltd Run) CiM Glass Rods, 11-12 rods.

Ltd Run colours are manufactured in extremely small quantities and might not be repeated again so the advice is always to buy as much as you can if you like it.

Cerulean is described as "a transparent blue"

"This pair of little textured heart beads shows what Cerulean looks like under a layer of clear encasement." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Before I made these beads I tested the white stringer applied directly to the Cerulean and it did exactly what I predicted it would: as soon as I melted the stringer in, it fizzed and pitted around the stringer edges. This is absolutely normal with the more saturated aqua and turquoise blues. Transparent aquas don’t really like being cooled and reheated and I’ve always found that they like to be kept at a consistent temperature or they can go scummy. You can blast the scum with heat and it will disperse but you’ll be left with telltale wisps in your work. Anyway, to avoid any kind of fizz-bubble-trouble here I encased the base bead of Cerulean with a thin layer of Effetre Super [Crystal] Clear 006 and then applied my Effetre White 204 stringer. Cerulean was not at all shocky and it melted and behaved like pretty much all other transparent aquas I have used before." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Cerulean is a bright aqua blue. The transparent glass was used to create a long smooth bi-cone and held shape/edges nicely during testing. The glass did slightly haze during melting, although the minute bubbles burn off quickly to leave a clean, clear color. This can be avoided by moving the glass rod out into the cooler part of the flame. No shocking occurred during testing."
Heather Sellers

"This colour is beautiful. A cross between turquoise blue and oriental blue, very pretty. Looks very captivating solo but really comes into its own with silver glass, giving a very decadent and regal look, one of the nicest blues I have worked with. Fuss free, no pitting or scumming. Seen here with Double Helix Helios outer decoration and with Double Helix Melia encased beads."
Juliette Mullett

"Looking at Cerulean, it falls in between Effetre light & dark turquoise but much closer to the light, and very close to Zoe. The richness shows better once melted into a bead, and it pairs prefectly with silver lustre glass! Unlike some turquoise glass, this melted with no issues at all, no hazing or scumming! A beautiful rich shade, and one for those who struggle with other turquoise glass."
