Reichenbach Glass

I just love Reichenbach glass. The colors are so dense and so rich. I am slowly converting my lampworking glass from 104coe to 96coe so I am making color reference charts as I go. Here's my latest batch of colors. R74 Granny Apple Green is a fun key lime green. It is darker than Effetre Pea Green, but more limey than Effetre Nile Green R84 Dutch Blue matches its namesake and is a nice delft blue. It is a dead ringer for Effetre Dark Periwinkle. R119 Mandarin is my most favorite orange ever. It is a soft yellowish orange - reminds me of butternut squash. It would be closest in comparison to Effetre Yellow Apricot without the dark streaks. All three colors made spacer beads that came out the exact same color as the rod itself. No striking or extra work required. R74 Granny Apple Green R84 Dutch Blue R119C Mandarin
