Testers reported


 

"A 'richer' version of Pachamama from last year, I really like Grand Canyon! It's a more reactive base colour so you can really push the range of tones and hues. I found you can achieve different looks depending on how you apply the glass. If you flatten and smush [can't think of a better word right now!] the molten glass before applying it to the mandrel you'll get a more varied look with more of the blue showing through. You can see what I mean by "smushing" the glass in this photo. Pull straight from the rod for a more uniform look with finer lines. It really reminds me of layers of sedimentary rock and the inner geologist in me really likes that. Always said if I hadn't studied Fine Art at uni I probably would have studied geology! Melted smoothly with no shockiness. Really nice to work with."

"The working notes say this has a base of Stone Ground formula with 571 Cornflower blue streamers. The color is beautiful and reminds me of silver cinnamon and rattan from ASK but without the iridescent sheen on the surface when you reduce it. I found it to be the perfect puppy color and it is a dream to sculpt."

"I read the description of Grand Canyon AFTER I’d made my test beads. Oh, I said to myself. And went back to look for blue streaks. Didn’t really see any. No discernable difference between Effetre super clear dots and Zephyr dots. I put a swipe of Clio on to see if it did anything exotic and encased with Zephyr."
