Blue Dream Rod - Glass Alchemy
Working Tip: Try layering Blue Dream to achieve a blue tint, or using it in thick solid sections to achieve a vibrant blue.
Artist Description: “Blue Dream is a vibrant and transparent blue. It is a stable WYSIWYG. The color becomes more intense as the layer of thickness is built up to about 8mm or more. If thinned out to a stringer or 4mm or less, the color becomes a lighter tint. With a higher refractive index, I use this color mostly as solid bits and thicker tubing sections. I found it to be quite optically clear and mostly air-free. If you are a fan of Brilliant Blue, then you will love this more transparent shade of bright cobalt. It can be exposed to many flame atmospheres and working conditions without any concern. I would not recommend an overly heavy propane flame for a long working time, but Blue Dream seems to be quite resilient to reduction issues other cobalt’s may have. Blue Dream compliments Sno White and pairs well with Haterade, Raindrop, and GA’s other transparents.” –Mike Shelbo

It's a light blue, and more...

So you get this color and you think it's going to be a boring, light blue. Big whoop. Well that's not true at all. It's a wonderful blue with a lot of depth. It almost shifts a little to the purple in certain lights/angles. Rods are clean and 98% free of air bubbles. So coil potting this looks great. No flame issues and works like butter.

It is just me who thinks this color lack saturation. It seems to be an additional cobalt we don't need. A shame GA chooses to release colors like this instead of raindrop and other Rev 33 colors. Not that great of a color IMO
